Submission + - MadWifi moves away from binary-only HAL

An anonymous reader writes:
We, the MadWifi team, announce our decision to move away from the binary-only HAL and change the focus of our future development towards ath5k, a completely free (as in freedom) driver which will eventually become an integral part of the Linux kernel. We encourage all interested developers to join us and contribute to our efforts.
[...]
To underline our decision and commitment to ath5k we now declare MadWifi "legacy". In the long run ath5k will replace the MadWifi driver. For the time being MadWifi will still be supported, bugs will get fixed and HAL updates will be applied where possible. But it becomes unlikely that we'll see new features or go through major changes on that codebase.
