    Only 7 months after the release of binary version 1.3.1 Linksys finally complies with my request to publish the GPL'd source code for the 1.3.1 firmware release of the RV042.

    I enlisted the help of the FSF a little over a month ago and this is the result!

    I am going to continue to pressure Linksys to keep up to date with their GPL firmware releases. Even the products that don't sell as well as say perhaps the WRT54G should still receive the same level of respect by Linksys with regards to compliance with the GPL. At the very least they could have sent me a copy or made one available for download, I shouldn't have to wait 7 months.

    Time will tell, 1.3.6 beta appears to be everywhere I and I suppose a new official binary release is imminent. Lets see how long it takes them to post the source code this time :).

    If you missed it, you can download the RV042 v1.3.1 GPL firmware release from here:
