    3232The new HAL is available for testing in the madwifi-hal-testing branch of SVN. This branch is tracking trunk, but with the new HAL. You can get a copy to test with the following command: 
    3333 
    34  svn checkout http://svn.madwifi.org/madwifi/branches/madwifi-hal-testing  
     34{{{ 
     35svn checkout http://svn.madwifi.org/madwifi/branches/madwifi-hal-testing  
     36}}}

     38As an alternative (if you're not familiar with Subversion, for example), you might download a snapshot tarball from [http://snapshots.madwifi.org/madwifi-hal-testing here].
