New versions of wpa_supplicant and hostapd were just
released and are now available from http://hostap.epitest.fi/

This release is from the development branch (0.5.x). Please note that
0.4.x branch continues to be the current source of stable releases.


hostapd:
* do not build nt_password_hash and hlr_auc_gw by default to avoid
  requiring a TLS library for a successful build; these programs can be
  build with 'make nt_password_hash' and 'make hlr_auc_gw'
* added a new configuration option, eapol_version, that can be used to
  set EAPOL version to 1 (default is 2) to work around broken client
  implementations that drop EAPOL frames which use version number 2
  [Bug 89]
* added support for EAP-SAKE (no EAP method number allocated yet, so
  this is using the same experimental type 255 as EAP-PSK)
* fixed EAP-MSCHAPv2 message length validation

wpa_supplicant:
* fixed EAP-GTC response to include correct user identity when run as
  phase 2 method of EAP-FAST (i.e., EAP-FAST did not work in v0.5.2)
* driver_ndis: Fixed encryption mode configuration for unencrypted
  networks (some NDIS drivers ignored this, but others, e.g., Broadcom,
  refused to associate with open networks) [Bug 106]
* driver_ndis: use BSSID OID polling to detect when IBSS network is
  formed even when ndis_events code is included since some NDIS drivers
  do not generate media connect events in IBSS mode
* config_winreg: allow global ctrl_interface parameter to be configured
  in Windows registry
* config_winreg: added support for saving configuration data into
  Windows registry
* added support for controlling network device operational state
  (dormant/up) for Linux 2.6.17 to improve DHCP processing (see
  http://www.flamewarmaster.de/software/dhcpclient/ for a DHCP client
  that can use this information)
* driver_wext: added support for WE-21 change to SSID configuration
* driver_wext: fixed privacy configuration for static WEP keys mode
  [Bug 140]
* added an optional driver_ops callback for MLME-SETPROTECTION.request
  primitive
* added support for EAP-SAKE (no EAP method number allocated yet, so
  this is using the same experimental type 255 as EAP-PSK)
* added support for dynamically loading EAP methods (.so files) instead
  of requiring them to be statically linked in; this is disabled by
  default (see CONFIG_DYNAMIC_EAP_METHODS in defconfig for information
  on how to use this)
