Linux 2.6.25 is released. There are a number of important changes:

  • mac80211 now supports HT (802.11n) operation
  • a new rate control algorithm for mac80211 (using a PID controller) was added

In drivers, there were a number of changes as well:

  • New drivers added: ath5k, rndis_wlan and rtl8180

  • rt2x00 drivers now support software antenna diversity
  • zd1211rw is now a mac80211 driver
  • b43 supports new devices (BCM94311MCG rev 02)

As always, of course, lots of code improvements (notably libertas), bugfixes and device IDs for new (or just found to be working) devices.
