New versions of the Host AP driver, hostapd, and wpa_supplicant were
just released and are now available from

This release is from the development (0.3.x) branch. Please note that
0.2.x branch continues to be the current source of stable releases.

Most of the new features are for EAP authentication. wpa_supplicant
got support for EAP-FAST and the integrated EAP authenticator in
hostapd for EAP-PEAP, EAP-GTC, EAP-TTLS, and EAP-SIM. In addition,
hostapd can now be used as a RADIUS authentication server that
supports the same EAP methods as the integrated EAP authenticator.

* fixed /proc/net/hostap/wlan# removing for cases where the interface
  name has been changed

* added support for EAP-PEAP in the integrated EAP authenticator
* added support for EAP-GTC in the integrated EAP authenticator
* added support for configuring list of EAP methods for Phase 1 so that
  the integrated EAP authenticator can, e.g., use the wildcard entry
  for EAP-TLS and EAP-PEAP
* added support for EAP-TTLS in the integrated EAP authenticator
* added support for EAP-SIM in the integrated EAP authenticator
* added support for using hostapd as a RADIUS authentication server
  with the integrated EAP authenticator taking care of EAP
  authentication (new hostapd.conf options: radius_server_clients and
  radius_server_auth_port); this is not included in default build; use
  CONFIG_RADIUS_SERVER=y in .config to include

* added optional support for GNU Readline and History Libraries for
* cleaned up EAP state machine <-> method interface and number of
  small problems with error case processing not terminating on
  EAP-Failure but waiting for timeout
* added couple of workarounds for interoperability issues with a
  Cisco AP when using WPA2
* added support for EAP-FAST (draft-cam-winget-eap-fast-00.txt);
  Note: This requires a patch for openssl to add support for TLS
  extensions and number of workarounds for operations without
  certificates. Proof of concept type of experimental patch is
  included in openssl-tls-extensions.patch.
