New Netgear Firmware

I noticed that Netgear has released new firmware for the 6300v2.  This latest version is supposed to contain new WIFI drivers for stability.  Does anyone know if the new drivers have been made available to the developers here?  Are there any plans to incorporate them into DD-WRT so we can hopefully get away from the NEWD vs OLDD binaries?


Here is the changelog from Netgear;

R6300v2 Firmware Version

Note: Please remember to do factory default after firmware upgrade. Enter "Backup Settings" in the web GUI and click "Erase" button of "Revert to factory default settings".

New Features & Enhancements: 

  • Added No-IP DDNS
  • Added CE DFS channel support
  • Improved 2.4G and 5G WiFi stability
  • Improved USB performance
  • Removed repeater function (WDS)

Bug Fixes:

  • Fixed BitComet throughput drop issue
  • Fixed UPnP IGRS issue
  • Fixed UPnP Traffic Meter in AP mode
  • Fixed FBwifi unstable issue

Seriously I doubt, that the new release has newer drivers then my NEWD build, we always get the latest driver release directly from broadcom and thus usually have newer drivers then netgear. This is a big difference compared to Tomato, they have to use a oem kernel with binary drivers and thus have no influence on drivers and kernel features.
