Bugfix release after the 1.8.0 version.
New in 1.8.1:
Fixes a problem with resetting router to default settings
Fixes hardware modes on wireless N routers
No longer disable ani, as it seems to hurt wireless performance
Fix an issue with the wifi button functioning as a reset button on wr1043nd v2 routers
Other assorted bug fixes
There are very few changes between this release and 1.7.2, but this release is the first official “stable” release based on Barrier Breaker. While not as much time has passed between the port to Barrier Breaker in 1.7.0 and the release of this stable branch, this branch will now become the stable branch so that work can begin on a new branch, 1.9.x, based on Chaos Calmer, which is due out very soon.
New in 1.8.0:
Updated Polish, Russian and Chinese translations for new adblock plugin
WAN LED should now light properly on D-Link DIR-835 routers
