SourceForge has been redesigned. Learn more.

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.

There has also been a lot of work going on in CVS HEAD on the next version. The next version is code named "Sea Monkey". The feature set for Sea Monkey is still unclear. But, there has been work done already to port the UI to Linux, and Mac OS X. There are still some issues to hammer out before it is usable on those platforms, but we are getting there.

Which brings me to one of the things we are working on behind the scenes. We are starting work on developing a wish list of features. We will be soliciting feature requests from OpenSEA members directly, but we also want to hear from the rest of the community. What features would you like to see added to the supplicant? We plan to compile the list of requested features on a web site, and then scratch them off the list as we go.

Also, please report any issues you are seeing with the supplicant. We've seen a lot of downloads of the development version (91 downloads today so far) but we have not been getting much feedback about useability or bugs from the community.

Thanks and enjoy!
