Release 0.9.1 is now available for download  at sf.net.
The build system has received a lot of attention, and various bugs related to building the driver have been fixed. MadWifi now compiles cleanly on the recently released kernel series 2.6.17. The hard dependancy on the in-kernel AES cryptographic module has been removed, most users won't need it anyway due to the AES acceleration in recent Atheros chipsets.
The HAL has been updated to the latest upstream version, v0.9.17.2. It fixes some bugs and introduces new features (see ). 32bit Sparc and various Atheros System-on-Chip (SoC) are now on the list of supported architectures.
AP VAPs have been fixed to handle associated clients correctly which enter the power-save mode. Associated clients can be disassociated ("kicked") by their MAC address using the new private ioctl "kickmac".
Average RSSI calculation in ahdemo mode has been fixed.

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