At last, it's out.
One fix since 0.1.15-pre8. If you have a slightly inconsistent PCMCIA
build, the Configure script would not do the right thing.
Hopefully the various package maintainers will have RPMs/debs/whatever
built soon for those of you that are afraid of compiling from source.
However, this release is far more intelligent in auto-magically picking
up the build environment which means it should "just work" for the
majority of the cases.
Full changelog below.
- Fix an obscure PCMCIA build problem. (modversions disabled but
header present, and using non-kernel pcmcia)
- Added code to optionally truncate packets in monitor mode. (Clay Jones)
- Fix a polarity problem with the stripfcs argument to monitor mode.
- Add a test to make sure wireless.h is included.
- Netgear MA401A card ident.
- Further cleanups of the build system (Makefiles)
- Include wireless.h so wireless extensions work again. :)
- Work around the braindead RedHat kernel build system.
- Fix a class of unaligned accesses in the message structures
(kernel driver) and user space parsers (wlanctl-ng, etc)
- Fix an unpacked struct problem that affected ARM platforms
(thanks to Clay Jones for spotting this one)
- Support the new auto-unknown mode present in firmware >1.3.3
When issuing an autojoin, we try to join a BSS, then an IBSS, and if
all fails, we create a new IBSS with the given parameters.
*note* currently disabled.
- Updates to hfa384x.h to reflect latest documentation
- Build system mini-enema. Automagically detect kernel version,
pcmcia status, and modversions. Pick up the kernel compile flags.
- Hopefully fixed the 'crash on unload' for 2.2.x kernels and PCI.
- 'p2req_join' command, see doc/wlanctl-ng.p2req_join.txt
This lets you join a specific SSID. Thanks to Clay Jones.
- A couple more pcmcia/cf card idents
- More deletions/fixes in wlan_compat.h
- Due to new hotplug code, atmel device detection removed
- Further cleanups in wlan_compat.h and non-kernel makefiles
- Debian package stuff yanked in favor of the "official" deb packages
- Rearranged the wireless extension support code a bit
- A fix for the promisc/allmulti stuff on USB devices
- Hotplug support for PCI/PLX/USB widgets
- A compile fix for 2.2.x (x < 18) kernels and PCI adapters
- Support for TMD7160-based "almost but not quite PLX" boards
- HP-PA support. In theory. Anyone care to test?
- pcmcia script cleanups
- Add ident info for the "Intel PRO/Wireless 2011B LAN USB Device"
- Include an almost-sane fix to the modversion madness
- Tweak the init order of the PCI driver structs
- Added ident info for ASUS WL-110/WL-100 cards
- Support for PCI power managment
- Fixed a wep hang on the transmit side
- Compile fixes; mainly for 2.2 kernels
- Add support for the SIOCGIWRATE wireless extension
- Restructured the driver locking. SMP should be MUCH better now.
- Stripped out more dead code. (mainly FID_STACK)
- Fix an skb access after we call netif_rx
- Fixes for XScale CPUs.
- Added added a MiniUSB ident info
- Restructure of the docmd_* functions
- Host-based WEP decryption and encryption
- Partial rewrite of copy_to_bap.
- Debian package metadata updated to 3.0-STABLE. (David Everley)
- Stripped out a lot of crap from wlan_compat.h
- More atmel adapters added to the USB exclude list.
- James Goodwin's patch to fix a bug in the 80211conv code.
- The 3COM AirConnect board is a PLX adapter.
