OpenWRT gets IPv6 in major refresh

The embedded systems Linux distro, OpenWRT, has taken a step into the 1990s and added native IPv6 support. The release candidate is code-named “Barrier Breaker” and runs the Linux 3.0 kernel. OpenWRT 14.07′s IPv6 support will at this point be of only limited end-user interest.
