Intel Linux driver version 1.0.0 for Centrino WLA

Werner Heuser writes "Intel has just released Linux driver version
1.0.0 for the Centrino PRO/Wireless 2100 chipset
. Almost two years, since
the first Centrino generation with Pentium-M Banias has reached the market,
a stable issue of a native Open Source driver has become available. The
Wireless LAN driver
for the current Centrino generation with Pentium-M Dothan
and PRO/Wireless 2200BG chipset is still at version 0.13. This driver
is intented to support also the third generation of the Intel miniPCI WLAN
adapter named PRO/Wireless 2915ABG. Though Intel
intended these projects to be community efforts, there are some
possible working constraints. Mainly, no hardware documentation is
available.
