Dear all,

Babeld-1.2.0 is available at


For more information about the Babel routing protocol, please see


This is the first release of the 1.2.0 branch, which includes babelz, an
implementation of a radio frequency-aware variant of Babel.  Please see
the description of the -z flag in the manual page; for background
information, please see my slides available on


As compared to the previous release candidate (, this fixes
a buffer overflow (not remotely exploitable), and implements MAC address
detection for BSD Unix.  Both of these are due to Matthieu Boutier, to
whom thanks.
