New features:

  • Busybox-cron is now installed by default.
If you already had it installed, and created cron jobs in /etc/cron/crontabs, those will be migrated to /var/spool/cron when you restore a backup, for compatibility. /etc/cron will be recreated as a symlink, so the backup files selection continues to work.
  • Network time sync is now built in by default.
It will automatically retrieve the correct time when the network interface becomes active, and syncs every 30 minutes aftwards to keep the time up to date. If no network is available, it will still use transponder time, automatically. By default it will use the mirrors to retrieve the time. If you want to use a custom NTP timeserver, you can enter a hostname or IP address in Menu -> Setup -> System -> Customize (scroll way down to the bottom).
Or take a look at our wiki  how to get the right Time

Known issue's:

Some users report that anonymous guest access ("guest" with password "guest") no longer works. This is under investigation.
