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

This release is a bug fix version from the old stable branch (0.3.x).
The current stable branch (0.4.x) is the recommended version for new
installations and 0.3.x branch is used only for critical bug fixes
from now on. Main development continues in the development branch

* fixed power save processing for PS-Poll frames with PwrMgmt flag set
  (this was causing "wifi0: invalid skb->cb magic" errors)
* fixed linking both hostap_cs and hostap_pci to kernel
  (prism2_suspend() function must be static)

* driver_madwifi: update driver interface code to work with newer
  madwifi driver versions
* added support for WE-19 (hostap, madwifi)
* fixed stdarg use in hostapd_logger(): if both stdout and syslog
  logging was enabled, hostapd could trigger a segmentation fault in
  vsyslog on some CPU -- C library combinations

* fixed parsing of strings that include both " and # within double
  quoted area (e.g., "start"#end")
* driver_wext: add support for WE-19
* driver_madwifi: set IEEE80211_KEY_GROUP flag for group keys to make
  sure the driver configures broadcast decryption correctly
* driver_ndis: fixed driver polling not to increase frequency on each
  received EAPOL frame due to incorrectly cancelled timeout
* fixed PC/SC code to use correct length for GSM AUTH command buffer
  and to not use pioRecvPci with SCardTransmit() calls; these were not
  causing visible problems with pcsc-lite, but Windows Winscard.dll
  refused the previously used parameters; this fixes EAP-SIM and
  EAP-AKA authentication using SIM/USIM card under Windows
* fixed TLS library deinitialization after RSN pre-authentication not
  to disable TLS library for normal authentication
