I'll give my 2 cents here too.

I've been using both ppp and ppp-new. I think there is a place for both
implementations, at least until ppp-new becomes a bit more mature.

I suggest adding a new folder, e.g. /lwip/netif/ppp4/ or
/lwip/netif/ppp-new/ , and perhaps a new configuration option such as
#define LWIP_PPP_NEW or similar. You can then control which stack is being
used through #include or makefile directives.

Switching branches is very easy in GIT, but it takes a lot of work to keep
the [ppp-new] branch up to date with the changes in [master]. Hence the

On another note, I have mixed feelings about the changed API. It would be
great to keep the old function prototypes for easy porting, on the other
hand it's good that they've changed because it forces you to revise your
ppp code. I'm not sure if it would be possible to define some
compatibility macros... I think I saw some in an earlier release.


PS: ppp-new has been running for a week here with no issues.
