KeeneticOS release notes for Keenetic Duo (KN-2110) in the Main Channel

KeeneticOS releases in this channel have passed our full rigorous testing and are recommended to all users, to avoid issues and maximize capabilities. This channel is updated roughly every two-three weeks with minor releases, and every two months with major releases.

Keenetic Duo (KN-2110) is currently in the Standard Updates support period and receives regular software updates, including security enhancements, new features, operating system updates, and bug fixes.

Highlights at a glance

Welcome to KeeneticOS release 3.8! This release introduces completely reworked Internet safety provisions, improved traffic classification and prioritization, and multiple other performance improvements and fixes:

  • Block annoying ads and trackers, protect your privacy, defend against security threats and enforce clean Internet access for children with the new Cloud-based content filtering and ad blocking component — the new filter combines seven popular public DNS resolvers into one configuration, allowing you to mix filtering profiles from different service providers to your devices in one setup. Supported public DNS resolvers include AdGuard DNS, CleanBrowsing, Cloudflare DNS, Neustar UltraDNS Public, OpenDNS, Quad9, and Yandex.DNS.

  • Add custom DNS profiles for even greater flexibility when public DNS presets are not enough.

  • Assign default filtering profiles to network segments.

  • Get complete peace of mind with the new NextDNS integration. NextDNS protects you from all kinds of security threats, blocks ads and trackers on websites and inside apps and provides a safe and supervised Internet for kids.

  • The traffic classification engine now detects and prioritizes various types of traffic inside a single app independently — for example, a video call and a file transfer via the same messenger app will have different traffic priorities according to your IntelliQoS rules.

  • New inbound and outbound bandwidth control options are now available for Internet connection policies to further improve traffic prioritization and minimize "buffer bloat."

  • The Mesh Wi-Fi system initialization on startup now happens considerably faster.

  • The Mesh Wi-Fi system’s new Conditional Wi-Fi broadcast option prevents the connection of wireless clients to the non-operatable extender, which loses connection to the controller.

  • Behind the scenes, not visible in the generic version, we have also developed a feature set for regional ISPs, covering initial device provisioning and centralized monitoring and management. Drop us a mail at help@keenetic.ua if you are interested.

As always, if you have any feedback (or want to say hi hi_picture.png), drop us a line in the forum. To learn more about Keenetic, visit the Help Center.
