New versions of wpa_supplicant and hostapd were just
released and are now available from

This release is from the development branch (0.6.x). Please note that
the 0.5.x branch continues to be the current source of stable releases.

* fixed Reassociation Response callback processing when using internal
  MLME (driver_{hostap,nl80211,test}.c)
* updated FT support to use the latest draft, IEEE 802.11r/D9.0
* copy optional Proxy-State attributes into RADIUS response when acting
  as a RADIUS authentication server
* fixed EAPOL state machine to handle a case in which no response is
  received from the RADIUS authentication server; previous version
  could have triggered a crash in some cases after a timeout
* fixed EAP-SIM/AKA realm processing to allow decorated usernames to
  be used
* added a workaround for EAP-SIM/AKA peers that include incorrect null
  termination in the username
* fixed EAP-SIM/AKA protected result indication to include AT_COUNTER
  attribute in notification messages only when using fast
* fixed EAP-SIM Start response processing for fast reauthentication
* added support for pending EAP processing in EAP-{PEAP,TTLS,FAST}
  phase 2 to allow EAP-SIM and EAP-AKA to be used as the Phase 2 method

* removed 'nai' and 'eappsk' network configuration variables that were
  previously used for configuring user identity and key for EAP-PSK,
  EAP-PAX, EAP-SAKE, and EAP-GPSK. 'identity' field is now used as the
  replacement for 'nai' (if old configuration used a separate
  'identity' value, that would now be configured as
  'anonymous_identity'). 'password' field is now used as the
  replacement for 'eappsk' (it can also be set using hexstring to
  present random binary data)
* removed '-w' command line parameter (wait for interface to be added,
  if needed); cleaner way of handling this functionality is to use an
  external mechanism (e.g., hotplug scripts) that start wpa_supplicant
  when an interface is added
* updated FT support to use the latest draft, IEEE 802.11r/D9.0
* added ctrl_iface monitor event (CTRL-EVENT-SCAN-RESULTS) for
  indicating when new scan results become available
* added new ctrl_iface command, BSS, to allow scan results to be
  fetched without hitting the message size limits (this command
  can be used to iterate through the scan results one BSS at the time)
* fixed EAP-SIM not to include AT_NONCE_MT and AT_SELECTED_VERSION
  attributes in EAP-SIM Start/Response when using fast reauthentication
* fixed EAPOL not to end up in infinite loop when processing dynamic
  WEP keys with IEEE 802.1X
* fixed problems in getting NDIS events from WMI on Windows 2000
