Version 1.12.0 : New stable version

New in 1.12.0:
  • External Plugin Root bug fixes (blocks the use of inappropriately formatted drives)
  • OpenVPN updated to latest with new ciphers
  • OpenVPN bug fixes (subnet routes for clients sometimes missing)
  • Restrictions/Whitelist bug fixes (specifying ip ranges now works as intended)
  • Webcam Plugin fixed
  • Fix setting custom MAC address on WAN for some devices (typically Archers)
  • Web Monitoring bug fix (no longer auto enables every sysupgrade)
  • QoS bug fixes (no longer auto enables every sysupgrade)
  • Fix guest networking on mvebu devices with 88W8964 chips (guest network was not routing packets)
  • Fix restrictions/quotas sometimes not adhering to DST
  • Fix IMQ crashes in Kernel 4.14 leading to loss of NAT/connectivity
  • New DDNS providers (safedns.com, domains.google.com)
  • Switch all add/edit GUI windows to modals rather than separate windows
    (much friendlier for mobile users)
  • New Plugin: Gargoyle STA Manager. Allows the user to specify multiple upstream wifi networks and connect to them in a specified priority, also ensuring that signal strength is maintained at highest possible levels. This also comes with the added benefit of automatically re-enabling the AP interface in the event that the STA can't connect, so you can still connect to Gargoyle
  • Timezone change: Users who were previously using "Central Time" (CST 6 w/ DST) may find that they are now set to Canada (Saskatchewan) time (CST 6 all year). The new Central Time can be selected from the menu
  • OpenWrt to 18.06.2 -> 18.06.5 (Kernel 4.9.156 -> 4.9.198, 4.14.99 ->4.14.151)

No, in theory those are the same builds.
The only difference would be that the plugin repositories now work by default on 1.12.0 without having to add your own, which is a bonus :)

I assume, since there aren't any explicit upgrade notes, that it's OK to 1.11->1.12 (both 18.06-based, more or less) but not from anything earlier?

This one should be relatively safe, as we only moved within the same OpenWrt release branch.
So 1.11.x -> 1.12.0, probably ok.
1.10.x (or earlier) -> 1.12.0, no.
Of course, it always pays to be prepared to dig your way out of trouble :) Be comfortable with failsafe procedures etc.

Also OK with preserving the settings?

Why does the Archer C7 v2 have thee factory.bin files? There's the just a factory.bin, a factory-eu.bin and a factory-us.bin. I assume the obvious, the -us if or US routers, -eu for EU routers, but what is the plain factory.bin for?
