MadWifi release 0.9.2 is now available.

madwifi_org writes "Release 0.9.2 is now available for download [1] at sf.net.
We've started to address some of the known issues related to scanning, and some of them have been fixed in this release. Another area that received some attention is the build system (again).

MadWifi now supports an enhanced iwspy feature which allows to define a signal strength threshold. When the monitored devices reaches the defined threshold, the driver rises an iwspy event that then can be handled by userspace tools.

Last but not least: the sample rate algorithm provides statistics via the /proc file system. You might know this functionality from madwifi-old where it has been available for some time - now that's finally available in the new codebase as well.

A detailed list of changes in this release can be found at [2].

The next release most probably will take more than just-another-month. We received a number of reports about problems related to scanning and associating, and we feel that it's time to address these issues.

We hope you enjoy the new version. As always, feedback is highly welcome.

The MadWifi team
