Here are recent release notes:

wave-1:

   *  April 2, 2019:  Support some get/set API for eeprom rate power tables.  Mostly
                      backported from 10.2

   *  April 2, 2019:  Support adaptive-CCA, backported from 10.2

   *  April 3, 2019:  Support adding eeprom configAddr pairs via the set-special API.
                      These configAddrs can be used to change the default register settings
                      for up to 12 registers.

   *  May 3, 2019:  Fix tx-power settings for 2x2, 3x3 rates.  Original logic I put in back in
                    2016 set 2x2 and 3x3 lower than the needed to be when using most NICs (very
                    high powered NICs would not have been affected I think, not sure any of those
                    exist though.)  This improves throughput for 2x2 and 3x3 devices,
                    especially when the signal is weaker.

wave-2:

   *  April 8, 2019:   When setting keys, if high bit of high value of  key_rsc_counter is set to 0x1,
                       then the lower 48 bits will be used as the PN value.  By default, PN is set to
                       1 each time the key is set.

   *  April 8, 2019:   Pack PN into un-used 'excretries' aka 'num_pkt_loss_excess_retry' high
                       16 bits.  This lets us report peer PN, but *only* if driver has previously
                       set a PN when setting key (or set-special cmd is used to enable PN reporting).
                       This is done so that we know the driver is recent
                       enough to deal with the PN stat reporting.

   *  April 16, 2019:  Support specifying tx rate on a per-beacon packet.
                       See ath10k_wmi_op_gen_beacon_dma and ath10k_convert_hw_rate_to_rate_info
                       for API details.  Driver needs additional work to actually enable this
                       feature currently.

   *  April 30, 2019   Compile out tx-prefetch caching logic.  It is full of tricky bugs that cause
                       tx hangs.  I fixed at least one, but more remain and I have wasted too much
                       time on this already.

   *  May 8, 2019  Start rate-ctrl at mcs-3 instead of mcs-5.  This significantly helps DHCP happen
                   quickly, probably because the initial rate being too high would take a while to
                   ramp down, especially since there are few packets sent by the time DHCP needs to
                   start.  This bug was triggered by me decreasing retries of 0x1e (upstream default)
                   to 0x4.  But, I think it is better to start with lower initial MCS instead
                   of always having a very high retry count.

Tested on 8devices Jalapeno dev board(IPQ4019)
