Linux 2.6.24 was released on January 28th. It includes a horde of new wireless drivers:
- SDIO driver for Marvell's Libertas 8385 and 8686 hardware
Various other drivers received bug fixes and increased hardware support.
For users looking to help test the bleeding edge but stuck on older kernels we now have available a wireless compatibility package. This lets you get the latest drivers and bug fixes on kernels >= 2.6.22, this includes the new Atheros ath5k driver, which is scheduled for inclusion for 2.6.25.
