Unless it is a security fix (such as the recent Krack vunerability),
updates such as adding a new hardware build are not backported into a
stable release.
That platform should be there in the next stable release of OpenWrt
(presumably the first post-remerge release).
It will probbaly not be backported to CC, but it is currently
available in LEDE's 17.0.4 stable release (see:
https://lede-project.org/toh/hwdata/tp-link/tp-link_tl-wr842n_v3 for
If you don't know, LEDE is a fork of OpenWrt which is in the process
of re-merging with OpenWrt. That is where most of the recent
development has happened.
