    Nice one. I've always liked the Madwifi project anyway but it looks like Atheros are getting more directly involved. Does this still require the bit of proprietary code from Atheros or have they finally gotten ath_hal to take over do you know? Or is this seperate altogether?

    It doesn't appear to have made it into the latest kernel (2.6.26), so you would have to install the driver from the git repository.

    Maybe a kernel patch would add it, not sure of this though.
