13. By Reinhard Tartler on 2006-06-13

* Apply patch from Kel Modderman for /etc/wpa_supplicant/ifupdown.sh
  + use wpa_cli command add_network instead of some arcane awk magic
  + fix some obvious typos

12. By Reinhard Tartler on 2006-04-27

[ Kel Modderman ]
* Orphaned daemons that are spawned during an ifup process that is
  manually terminated are now checked for and killed.
* Don't make noise when we are not using the manual inet method and
  wpa-action is used.
* Warn about non-executable action script.
* Ensure wpa_cli actfile is destroyed before launching action script.
* Make start-stop-daemon verbose when VERBOSITY is set.
* Fix typo in Readme.Debian, that referred to a non-existant location.
  (Closes: #364829)
* Add upstream fix for static wep keys with wext interfaces.

[ Reinhard Tartler ]
* This is branched of revision 310 of debian/trunk
* tested snapshot fix https://launchpad.net/bugs/41480
* made ifupdown.sh quiet on success without --verbose

fakesync from debian.

10. By Adam Conrad on 2006-03-29

Add 40_ctrl_iface_hide_keys.dpatch to hide passwords and PINs from
our logfiles, preventing an information disclosure vulnerability.

[ Kel Modderman ] - done in debian experimental for version 0.5.2-1
* New upstream release.
* Add myself to Uploaders.
* Convert to cdbs.
  - rewrite debian/rules to take advantage of cdbs
  - update control file build-deps
* Update README.modes.
  - clarify that wext is used by default, when no driver is specified
  - fix exmaple of wpa-psk using a plaintext string
  - fix typo's
* Fold pre-up scripts into one, and symlink from
* Use VERBOSITY of ifupdown to assist debugging of wpa stanza's in
* Add support for wpa_cli action scripts.
* Use start-stop-daemon to initiate wpa_supplicant and wpa_cli background
* Daemons now create pidfiles.
* Quote tested var's in wpasupplicant.init.
* Quote all var's in wpsupplicant.default for uniformity.
* Move wpa_* to /sbin.
* Conffile for wpa_supplicant now installed to
  /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf. That directory will hold any
  other files that we may require to use wpa_supplicant.
* Don't start wpasupplicant pre-up if the current kernel lacks support for
  "Packet Socket" (CONFIG_PACKET=y).
* Fix blunders in the init script.
  - typo, $PIFFILE should have been $PIDFILE
  - init script exited when a configuration file WAS found
* Force init daemon's pidfile to be the same as wpasupplicant.ifupdown uses,
  to avoid duplicate wpa_supplicant processes binding to the same interface.
* Remove the margin for error from the init daemon, by forcing the default
  variables to be set. Helpful and informative comments were placed in the
  default file. The init script will exit if these variables are not set
  correctly. (Closes: #357957)
* Add comment to defconf about ctrl_interface and wpa_cli.
* Add comments to previously uncommented dpatch's.
* Include proof-of-concept dhlcient wpa-action script. Suggest
* Thanks to Henrik Brix Andersen from gentoo for the ideas and inspriration
  for some of the above changes.

[ Reinhard Tartler ]
* install compatibility links from /usr/sbin/wpa_supplicant ->
* /usr/sbin/wpa_cli -> /sbin/wpa_cli likewise
* compile wpa_gui with qt3 rather than qt4. (in order to faciliate
  backporting to sarge)
* revert to debhelper 4
* take the complete packaging from our experimental branch. The last upload
  did not document all changes properly (see the list above), and had still
  a lot of issues.
* fixing typo in the preinst

8. By Scott James Remnant (Canonical) on 2006-03-23

* New upstream release:
  - Various bug fixes
  - Support for EAP-FAST key derivation using other ciphers than
    RC4-128-SHA for authentication and AES128-SHA for provisioning.
  - UVF exception granted by Kamion.

* Packaging and configuration is based on Debian Experimental however,
  making this package something of a bastard love child of what's in
* Deliberately dropped support for wpasupplicant being run at startup to
  make it easier for Ubuntu to support. It's now run on a per-interface
  basis when the interface is brought up.
  Consult /usr/share/doc/wpasupplicant/README.Debian for documentation
  if upgrading from universe.
* Unlike Debian the wpa-conf /etc/network/interfaces is only needed for
  explicitly giving a configuration file; simply include any setting
  for wpa to be used.
* Binaries moved to /sbin for seb128.

7. By Scott James Remnant (Canonical) on 2006-03-23

Split the wpa_gui binary out into its own package, as done with 0.4.8,
to avoid dragging libqt into ubuntu-desktop.

6. By Scott James Remnant (Canonical) on 2006-03-23

* 30_ctrl_iface_ap_scan.dpatch, taken from the DapperNetworkManager
  repository, required for NetworkManager; done by siretart.
* Add comment to the default file that tells people it does not need
  to be enabled when using NetworkManagaer.
* Remove "disabled" messages from init script, and just exit cleanly.
* Prettyfy the init script.

5. By Reinhard Tartler on 2006-01-26

* build and install wpa_gui applications (Malone #4695)
* use debhelper 5

4. By Daniel T Chen on 2005-12-04

The "All hail the udev New World Order" release.

Convert rcS.d script to use /etc/network/if-p{ost-down,re-up}.d
instead. Remove the rcS.d script installed in 0.4.7-0ubuntu{1,2}.
If you manually modified /etc/network/interfaces to use the pre-up
and post-down directives with wpasupplicant, please remove them.
Thanks to Scott James Remnant for the guidance.
