The most important new features are:
- PCI card support
- PLX card support
- Linux kernel 2.4.18 (latest and greatest)
- Enhanced autoconfig of 802.11b card drivers
- Support for the latest PCMCIA cards based on both the Intersil PRISM 2 and PRISM 2.5 chipsets
- Smaller ISO image (was 49 MB, now 30 MB)
This release also coincides with a major website update that reflects our changed focus on building enterprise products. We are not going to charge for the Sputnik Network, ever. We hope that community networks will use the Network as an easy way to roam, and developers will use it to test out their Sputnik apps.
We're still working on the Enterprise gateway, which has a whole bunch of other cool features, including the robust backend management console, rogue AP detection, and more. Expect that release this summer.
