There have been a number of changes since the last release with more routers and more modems supported, bugs that have been killed and new features or features that have been updated. This release is a major step forward for ROOter and should improve the operations of routers and modems.

Some of the changes are support for Wireguard, a new Guest Wifi set up, revamped Bandwidth Monitor, new Themes with a new Login screen and a new Speed Test page. Plus much work was done on making modems connect and run better than ever.
