Default FW 3.0.0.4.270 and new utilities

Dears,
As probably everyone noticed new stock FW is available accompanied with 2 new utilities. It was no changelog so far, but wireless driver still is the same there.
Anyone tried and noticed some new useful features there?

As expected. very few changes in this version. Two undocumented changes that I can see by comparing the code with build 266:
  • They seem to have redesigned the way NTP will sync with a server. I haven't looked at the code in depth, but a lot of code in that section has changed.
  • Some cleanups and tweaks to TX power management.

Size after compilation has increased quite a lot.(more than 0.6MB)
I think my router runs a little cooler than before.

Hmmm, they have probably found more ways to screw the power output up again. It's hardly ever worked, and the later limitations on TX power output are crazy.

I also saw that the wireless driver was different. Same version, but different build - might be a fix for the regression that was introduced with 246.

Asus doesn't decide those limitation - country regulations does.

Looks like they removed the ability to disable generic offload under LAN Switch Control
