Any idea when the next release is planned? I can't wait to try the new QoS UI features, but I'm not sure if I dare to build it myself.

use toastman's releases ftp://toastman.dyndns.org/
Asus RT-N16 Tomato Shibby build5x-101V
TP-Link TL-WR1043ND v1.8 - Openwrt 12.09beta
TP-Link TL-WR703n v1.2 - Openwrt Attitude Ajustement
Asus WL-500gP v1 - wl500g.googlecode.com rtn-r3702
I had a look in there (mention of the IP limiter drew me in) but I'm completely lost as to which of the lower sixteen I'm meant to download for my RT-N16. Some of the codes don't appear to have any meaning — VPN and Ext and Lite are described in the Build Types list, but what is "ONC" and "BT"? And why are there .trx and .bin files?
I think this would be appropriate for my wrt610n and wrt320n: ftp://toastman.dyndns.org/MIPS32R2%20Kernel%202.6%20(RT-N16%20etc)%20Builds/1.28.7455%20-%20With%20new%20beta%20static%20-%20ARP%20code/tomato-K26USB-1.28.7455MIPSR2-Toastman-Ext.trx
BUT how stable are these releases? I assume I can just rename the *.trx to *.bin and reflash?
Note: I'm a new Tomato'er. (from dd-wrt)
Yeah, I really wish that Toastman went back to doing "nightly" builds of the -RT branch… It appears that Toastman is merging EVERYTHING anybody does into his branch now, and although clearly it's primary being built for himself, I wish there was the "plain more stable" -RT branch builds like before.
I tried building git myself, but after following the wiki "how to's" I get an errror in Ubuntu 10.04 while it's trying to build minidlna (I forget the exact error, but something along the lines of verify_id3 function or something like that… I foget… but libmp3 and libid3 are both installed… :/
Check the "readme.txt" file.
ONC=Original Class Names.
BT = Bit Torrent
I've added it in several more places just to make sure it's visible. Now, if you look above this text at the menu, you'll see some words saying "COMPATIBILITY/BUILD TYPES". That is probably a good place to start finding out about build types.
The bit torrent feature was compiled for several people who couldn't merge the feature from Shibby - it merged easily here. I don't use it although I have tested it and it seems quite functional. Shibby did a nice job on it. You will see no BT in the standard builds, that was a quite separate merge and compile for those who requested it. I do not want to add Transmission and similar features to my builds because I consider the function of a router is to route. I don't mind doing someone the odd favor but now it's "expected". Sorry guys, this is a hobby, and these things take time. So if you want these features you must learn how to do these things yourself.
I have never done "nightly" builds, what's the point? I build only when something has changed or been added, as you have correctly surmised, this is when I compile it for my own use, it takes very little effort to let the machine compile the different options that are available and share it.
Not "everything" is being added, only what seems to add functionality, remember that my version has historically been built on Victek's RAF code so it will reflect changes in RAF too. Many features of RAF are being rebuilt after various recent code changes, mostly to do with ipv6, broke them. Victek and I keep in close contact and exchange ideas, as do the other guys you'll see in the "about" page on my builds. You will see other things added because we are basically all working together on them. This isn't a contest!
If the choice of builds annoys people, I can quite easily stop sharing them as I only use the .ext version - no worries here :-) You don't have to keep reflashing new version numbers, quite often there is very little difference that you will notice - it's up to you to do that after reading the "readme.txt" file. (You do read it, don't you?). It would make sense to only flash if something looks interesting and you would like to try it, or if you are completely new to these QOS builds, then just flash the latest one.
All of the them are tested online with around 100+ users before posting, but your usage may of course be different (for example I don't use the wireless on my main routers). As for stability, pretty much all of Teddy Bear's posted code I would consider "stable", although they are "officially" of beta status. So there are no "stable" builds as such - all of them have been stable here.

@Toastman_BKK: Yeap you're right, it's a chance for us that you decide to share what is basically a personnal use. So thank you and on our side our 'job' is to test and report if bugs seem to occur.
All people should remember that this firmware is in continual developpment and using it is at your OWN risk. Some years ago I used Cooker Mandriva distro (= unstable one, continuous updates with new stuf) and it was funny (not for developpers…) to see people on the mailing lists that were angry because there were bugs…. You've got what you sign for !
i like toastman's releases i think he is doing a A+ good job. I came from wrt firmware and it been working out very nice got 1 610V2 converted to E3000 and another E3000 i just got working . kept up the fine work
