MPTCP v0.91 Release
The MPTCP v0.91 release is based on the Linux Kernel Longterm Support release v4.1.x. Its new features compared to the v0.90 release are:
- Support for ADD_ADDR2 as specified in draft-ietf-mptcp-rfc6824bis (Fabrizio Demaria)
To use it, you need to set the sysctl net.mptcp.mptcp_version to 1. Please note that although mptcp_version is set to 1, this is not yet a complete implementation of RFC6824bis that introduces more changes beyond the ADD_ADDR2. It is not recommended at this stage to set mptcp_version to 1 on production machines.
- The redundant MPTCP-scheduler to reduce latency and jitter. It duplicates all traffic on all available subflows. (Christian Pinedo)
To enable it, just select "redundant" for the sysctl net.mptcp.mptcp_scheduler.
- The usual performance improvements and bug-fixes.
- Baptiste Jonglez helped in keeping the code up-to-date with the upstream Linux Kernel.
This release includes a total of 52 commits.
MPTCP v0.91 is available through git:
git clone -b mptcp_v0.91 git://github.com/multipath-tcp/mptcp
Or, in zip-format through this link.
Other ways of installing MPTCP are shown here, notably our apt-repository and the rpm-repository.
