wpasupplicant (0.7.3-6ubuntu2.2) precise-proposed; urgency=low

  * Multiple patches to reduce the number of disconnections for WPA Enterprise
    roaming and Opportunistic Key Caching. (LP: #1187524)
  * In debian/patches:
    0001-sme-fix-retry-after-auth-assoc-timeout-failure.patch,
    0002-sme-optimize-recovery-from-common-load-balancing-mechanisms.patch,
    0003-sme-blacklist-bss-on-first-failure-if-only-a-*.patch,

    0005-sme-optimize-recovery-from-association-command-failures.patch,
    0006-sme-add-timers-for-authentication-and-association.patch,
    0007-sme-nl80211-set-cipher-suites.patch:
    Cherry-pick patches fixing SME (Session Management Entity) for the nl80211
    driver, which works as a basis for the OKC patches.
  * In debian/patches:
    0001-pmkokc-Set-portValid-TRUE-on-association-for-driver-based-4.patch,
    0002-pmkokc-Clear-WPA-and-EAPOL-state-machine-config-pointer-on-.patch,
    0003-pmkokc-Clear-driver-PMKSA-cache-entry-on-PMKSA-cache-expira.patch,
    0004-pmkokc-Flush-PMKSA-cache-entries-and-invalidate-EAP-state-o.patch,
    0005-pmkokc-Fix-proactive_key_caching-configuration-to-WPA-code.patch,
    0006-pmkokc-RSN-Add-a-debug-message-when-considing-addition-of-O.patch,
    0007-pmkokc-Clear-OKC-based-PMKSA-caching-entries-if-PMK-is-chan.patch,
    0008-pmkokc-Move-wpa_sm_remove_pmkid-call-to-PMKSA-cache-entry-f.patch,
    0009-pmkokc-Use-PMKSA-cache-entries-with-only-a-single-network-c.patch,
    0010-pmkokc-PMKSA-Do-not-evict-active-cache-entry-when-adding-ne.patch,
    0011-pmkokc-PMKSA-Set-cur_pmksa-pointer-during-initial-associati.patch,
    0012-pmkokc-PMKSA-make-deauthentication-due-to-cache-entry-remov.patch,
    0013-pmkokc-PMKSA-update-current-cache-entry-due-to-association-.patch:
    Cherry-pick patches to properly do OKC (Opportunistic Key Caching) which
    helps maintaining connectivity on networks secured with WPA Enterprise,
    especially on nl80211-based drivers -- these patches require SME, and add
    or fix key caching and handling of the cache entries.
  * debian/patches/force-enable-okc.patch: force Opportunistic Key Caching to
    be enabled.
  * debian/patches/less-aggressive-roaming.patch: use less aggressive roaming
    settings to avoid switching to another AP unnecessarily, when the actual
    signal level difference is small.
  * debian/patches/wpa_supplicant-dbus-null-error.patch: Don't send NULL to
    dbus_message_new_error().
  * debian/patches/0001-nl80211-Fix-UNSPEC-signal-quality-reporting.patch: fix
    marking qual as invalid rather than signal level.
  * debian/patches/wpa_supplicant-squelch-driver-disconnect-spam.patch: recover
    cleanly from streams of disconnect messages (like on iwl3945).
  * debian/patches/wpa_supplicant-assoc-timeout.patch: increase association
    timeouts.

wpagui: graphical user interface for wpa_supplicant

 wpagui provides a Qt interface for choosing which configured network
 to connect to. It also provides a method for browsing 802.11 SSID scan
 results, an event history log of messages generated by wpa_supplicant,
 and a method to add or edit wpa_supplicant networks.

wpasupplicant: client support for WPA and WPA2 (IEEE 802.11i)

 WPA and WPA2 are methods for securing wireless networks, the former
 using IEEE 802.1X, and the latter using IEEE 802.11i. This software
 provides key negotiation with the WPA Authenticator, and controls
 association with IEEE 802.11i networks.

wpasupplicant-udeb: Client support for WPA and WPA2 (IEEE 802.11i)

 WPA and WPA2 are methods for securing wireless networks, the former
 using IEEE 802.1X, and the latter using IEEE 802.11i. This software
 provides key negotiation with the WPA Authenticator, and controls
 association with IEEE 802.11i networks.
