* Tue May 15 2012
  - Update to 1.0
    * Delay STA entry removal until Deauth/Disassoc TX status
      in AP mode. This allows the driver to use PS buffering of
      Deauthentication and Disassociation frames when the STA
      is in power save sleep. Only available with drivers that
      provide TX status events for Deauth/Disassoc frames
    * Drop oldest unknown BSS table entries first. This makes
      it less likely to hit connection issues in environments
      with huge number of visible APs.
    * Add systemd support.
    * Add support for setting the syslog facility from the
      config file at build time.
    * atheros: Add support for IEEE 802.11w configuration.
    * AP mode: Allow enable HT20 if driver supports it, by
      setting the config parameter ieee80211n.
    * Allow AP mode to disconnect STAs based on low ACK
      condition (when the data connection is not working
      properly, e.g., due to the STA going outside the range
      of the AP).
    * nl80211:
    - Support GTK rekey offload.
    - Support PMKSA candidate events. This adds support for
      RSN pre-authentication with nl80211 interface and
      drivers that handle roaming internally.
    * Improved dbus interface
    * New wpa_cli commands to setup the scan interval and
      to support P2P and WPS/WPS ER
    * AP mode: Add max_num_sta config option, which can be used
      to limit the number of stations allowed to connect to the
    * wext: Increase scan timeout from 5 to 10 seconds.
    * Allow an external program to manage the BSS blacklist
      and display its current contents.
    * WPS:
    - Add wpa_cli wps_pin get command for generating random
      PINs. This can be used in a UI to generate a PIN
      without starting WPS (or P2P) operation.
    - Set RF bands based on driver capabilities, instead of
      hardcoding them.
    - Add mechanism for indicating non-standard WPS errors.
    - Add wps_ap_pin cli command for wpa_supplicant AP mode.
    - Add wps_check_pin cli command for processing PIN from
      user input. UIs can use this command to process a PIN
      entered by a user and to validate the checksum digit
      (if present).
    - Cancel WPS operation on PBC session overlap detection.
    - New wps_cancel command in wpa_cli will cancel a
      pending WPS operation.
    - wpa_cli action: Add WPS_EVENT_SUCCESS and
      WPS_EVENT_FAIL handlers.
    - Trigger WPS config update on Manufacturer, Model Name,
      Model Number, and Serial Number changes.
    - Fragment size is now configurable for EAP-WSC peer.
      Use wpa_cli set wps_fragment_size <val>.
    - Disable AP PIN after 10 consecutive failures. Slow down
      attacks on failures up to 10.
    - Allow AP to start in Enrollee mode without AP PIN for
      probing, to be compatible with Windows 7.
    - Add Config Error into WPS-FAIL events to provide more
      info to the user on how to resolve the issue.
    - Label and Display config methods are not allowed to be
      enabled at the same time, since it is unclear which
      PIN to use if both methods are advertised.
    - When controlling multiple interfaces:
    - apply WPS commands to all interfaces configured to
      use WPS
    - apply WPS config changes to all interfaces that use
    - when an attack is detected on any interface, disable
      AP PIN on all interfaces
    * WPS ER:
    - Add special AP Setup Locked mode to allow read only ER.
    - Show SetSelectedRegistrar events as ctrl_iface events
    - Add wps_er_set_config to enroll a network based on a
      local network configuration block instead of having to
      (re-)learn the current AP settings with wps_er_learn.
    - Allow AP filtering based on IP address, add ctrl_iface
      event for learned AP settings, add wps_er_config
      command to configure an AP.
    * Add support for WPS 2.0
    * TDLS:
    - Propogate TDLS related nl80211 capability flags from
      kernel and add them as driver capability flags. If the
      driver doesn't support capabilities, assume TDLS is
      supported internally. When TDLS is explicitly not
      supported, disable all user facing TDLS operations.
    - Allow TDLS to be disabled at runtime.
    - Honor AP TDLS settings that prohibit/allow TDLS.
    - Add a special testing feature for changing TDLS
    - Add support for TDLS 802.11z.
    * wlantest: Add a tool wlantest for IEEE802.11 protocol
      testing. wlantest can be used to capture frames from a
      monitor interface for realtime capturing or from pcap
      files for offline analysis.
    * bgscan learn: Add new bgscan that learns BSS information
      based on previous scans, and uses that information to
      dynamically generate the list of channels for background
    * Add a new debug message level for excessive information.
    * TLS: Add support for tls_disable_time_checks=1 in client
    * Improved internal TLS
    * Add RFKill support by adding an interface state
    * Reorder some IEs to get closer to IEEE 802.11 standard.
      Move WMM into end of Beacon, Probe Resp and (Re)Assoc
      Resp frames. Move HT IEs to be later in (Re)Assoc Resp.
    * Wi-Fi Direct support
  - Remove wpa_supplicant-dbus-events.patch (merged upstream)
  - Remove wpa_supplicant-probed-cert-dbus-signal.patch (merged

* Wed Aug 31 2011
  - %ghost directive for /var/run/wpa_supplicant added for tmpfs
    (bnc 710281)
* Wed Mar 16 2011
  - Add wpa_supplicant-dbus-events.patch: Emit property changed
    events when adding/removing BSSes. Required by NetworkManager
    0.9 beta1 and later.
  - Also install fi.w1.wpa_supplicant1.service, which was added as
    source5, sourced from the wpa_supplicant source code, with
    modified exec line pointing to /usr/sbin instead of /sbin.
* Tue Sep 07 2010

      scan result events
    * improved SME operations with nl80211
    * fixed WPS ER event_id handling in some cases
    * fixed some issues with bgscan simple to avoid unnecessary scans
    * fixed issue with l2_packet_ndis overlapped writes corrupting stack
      [Bug 328]
    * updated WinPcap to the latest stable version 4.1.2 in Windows
    update to 0.7.2
    * nl80211: fixed number of issues with roaming
    * avoid unnecessary roaming if multiple APs with similar signal
      strength are present in scan results
    * add TLS client events and server probing to ease design of
      automatic detection of EAP parameters
    * add option for server certificate matching (SHA256 hash of the
      certificate) instead of trusted CA certificate configuration
    * bsd: Cleaned up driver wrapper and added various low-level
      configuration options
    * wpa_gui-qt4: do not show too frequent WPS AP available events as
      tray messages
    * TNC: fixed issues with fragmentation
    * EAP-TNC: add Flags field into fragment acknowledgement (needed to
      interoperate with other implementations; may potentially breaks
      compatibility with older wpa_supplicant/hostapd versions)
    * wpa_cli: added option for using a separate process to receive event
      messages to reduce latency in showing these
      (CFLAGS += -DCONFIG_WPA_CLI_FORK=y in .config to enable this)
    * maximum BSS table size can now be configured (bss_max_count)
    * BSSes to be included in the BSS table can be filtered based on
      configured SSIDs to save memory (filter_ssids)
    * fix number of issues with IEEE 802.11r/FT; this version is not
      backwards compatible with old versions
    * nl80211: add support for IEEE 802.11r/FT protocol (both over-the-air
      and over-the-DS)
    * add freq_list network configuration parameter to allow the AP
      selection to filter out entries based on the operating channel
    * add signal strength change events for bgscan; this allows more
      dynamic changes to background scanning interval based on changes in
      the signal strength with the current AP; this improves roaming within
      ESS quite a bit, e.g., with bgscan="simple:30:-45:300" in the network
      configuration block to request background scans less frequently when
      signal strength remains good and to automatically trigger background
      scans whenever signal strength drops noticeably
      (this is currently only available with nl80211)
    * add BSSID and reason code (if available) to disconnect event messages
    * wpa_gui-qt4: more complete support for translating the GUI with
      linguist and add German translation

    byte result buffer (previously, limited to 32768 bytes)
    * added support for Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS)
    (wpa_supplicant can now be configured to act as a WPS Enrollee to
    enroll credentials for a network using PIN and PBC methods; in
    addition, wpa_supplicant can act as a wireless WPS Registrar to
    configure an AP); WPS support can be enabled by adding CONFIG_WPS=y
    into .config and setting the runtime configuration variables in
    wpa_supplicant.conf (see WPS section in the example configuration
    file); new wpa_cli commands wps_pin, wps_pbc, and wps_reg are used to
    manage WPS negotiation; see README-WPS for more details
    * added support for EAP-AKA' (draft-arkko-eap-aka-kdf)

    * changed EAP-GPSK to use the IANA assigned EAP method type 51
    * added a Windows installer that includes WinPcap and all the needed
    DLLs; in addition, it set up the registry automatically so that user
    will only need start wpa_gui to get prompted to start the wpasvc
    servide and add a new interface if needed through wpa_gui dialog
    * updated management frame protection to use IEEE 802.11w/D7.0
    * added Milenage SIM/USIM emulator for EAP-SIM/EAP-AKA
    (can be used to simulate test SIM/USIM card with a known private key;
    and password="Ki:OPc"/password="Ki:OPc:SQN" in network configuration)
    * added a new network configuration option, wpa_ptk_rekey, that can be
    used to enforce frequent PTK rekeying, e.g., to mitigate some attacks
    against TKIP deficiencies
    * added an optional mitigation mechanism for certain attacks against
    TKIP by delaying Michael MIC error reports by a random amount of time
    between 0 and 60 seconds; this can be enabled with a build option
    * fixed EAP-AKA to use RES Length field in AT_RES as length in bits,
    not bytes
    * updated OpenSSL code for EAP-FAST to use an updated version of the
    session ticket overriding API that was included into the upstream
    OpenSSL 0.9.9 tree on 2008-11-15 (no additional OpenSSL patch is
    needed with that version anymore)
    * updated userspace MLME instructions to match with the current Linux
    mac80211 implementation; please also note that this can only be used
    with driver_nl80211.c (the old code from driver_wext.c was removed)
    * added support (Linux only) for RoboSwitch chipsets (often found in
    consumer grade routers); driver interface 'roboswitch'
    * fixed canceling of PMKSA caching when using drivers that generate
    RSN IE and refuse to drop PMKIDs that wpa_supplicant does not know
    * added support for SHA-256 as X.509 certificate digest when using the
    internal X.509/TLSv1 implementation

    * added support for using SHA256-based stronger key derivation for WPA2
    (IEEE 802.11w)
    * fixed FT (IEEE 802.11r) authentication after a failed association to
    use correct FTIE
    * added support for configuring Phase 2 (inner/tunneled) authentication
    method with wpa_gui-qt4
    * added support for EAP Sequences in EAP-FAST Phase 2
    * added support for using TNC with EAP-FAST
    * added driver_ps3 for the PS3 Linux wireless driver
    * added support for optional cryptobinding with PEAPv0
    * fixed the OpenSSL patches (0.9.8g and 0.9.9) for EAP-FAST to
    allow fallback to full handshake if server rejects PAC-Opaque
    * added fragmentation support for EAP-TNC
    * added support for parsing PKCS #8 formatted private keys into the
    internal TLS implementation (both PKCS #1 RSA key and PKCS #8
    encapsulated RSA key can now be used)
    * added option of using faster, but larger, routines in the internal
    LibTomMath (for internal TLS implementation) to speed up DH and RSA
    * fixed race condition between disassociation event and group key
    handshake to avoid getting stuck in incorrect state [Bug 261]
