Open1X: XSupplicant 2.0.1

Open1X is an open source implementation of the IEEE 802.1X protocol. This project includes support for the authenticator and supplicant, while other projects (e.g., FreeRADIUS) provide support for the authentication server.

XSupplicant version 2.0.1 has been released. This release fixes bugs that have been found since the 2.0.0 release. It does not contain any new features.

In addition to the new release, there has been a lot of work taking place on the next version. First, the project management committe (PMC) decided to rename the codename from SeaMonkey to SeaAnt and to accept a letter ordering for all future codenames. So, along with SeaAnt, the two releases that will follow it are "SeaBadger", and "SeaCow". Second, the roadmap for SeaAnt has been approved by the PMC. Two versions are available. The "executive summary" version can be found here, a longer version with (really) rough timelines can be found here. Third, we have started to work on various pieces of documentation. All of the documentation will be included in future source drops, in addition to the documentation links in the SourceForge project.... read more

FYI: XSupplicant 1.9.6 development preview release.

There has been a few changes over the last week, all leading up to this latest release. First, we added the ugly button at the top of the web page to help people get to the download area more easily. Our web designer is working on something that blends in to the over-all look of the site, but until then the ugly button should do the trick. Second, the new version has a VERY important fix in it. This version should be able to properly do PEAP authentication again the Microsoft IAS server that is included with Windows 2003 Server. So, if you have had problems authenticating against IAS, please give this latest build a try and let us know if you have any problems.

FYI: XSupplicant 1.9.5 development preview release.

A new development release was put out on the servers a couple of days ago, but I am just now getting around to updating the web site. This release includes several bug fixes for issues that people have reported, and one new feature. The new feature is a change in how priorities work on different types of adapters. Wired adapters are no longer listed in the priorities window, since the priorities didn't do anything on wired anyway. An a new option is available in Advanced Settings. The "Wired Default" setting allows you to select a wired Connection to always try to connect to whenever the service is started.... read more
