There is always a possibility, but I have not heard of any active preparations.

Thank you for the quick response, I had the same impression but I just want to ask. For sure it would be stated somewhere in the document or in the source code.

Alex:
There is any performance or benchmark tests for lwmesh?

What kind of benchmarks? It performs the way I would expect it to on a normal applications. I have not tried to push it to the limits - I'm not a big fan of pushing stuff to the limits and I've never seen actual requests to do so.

PS: But no, there are no formal benchmarks, because it is hard to benchmark wireless stack. It is mostly limited by the medium, not by the software.

In the release notes it looks like only the 2.4GHz ZigBits are supported. Will lwmesh work with 900MHz zigbits?

There are no projects for ZigBit 900, but it is very easy to make it work by changing projects for ZigBee 2.4 GHz to include rf212 PHY.

What about the power consumption? Can all the node oparate with battery? Can all the nodes go to sleep mode?

Yes, you can. Non-routing nodes are designed for this reason. You can have routing nodes sleeping as well, but it is application responsibility to keep track of when nodes sleep and when not so that network stays operational and no nodes required for routing are asleep.
