Reyk Floeter is back with a new daemon, hostapd(8). This new daemon uses IEEE 802.11f to connect wireless Access Points for tracking client associations and movements in large wireless networks, providing roaming improvements. hostapd(8) supports wireless interfaces using 802.11 kernel stack, like ral(4), ath(4), ural(4) and others. It currently does not support the wi(4) driver, since it misses some required functionality.
Future plans include implementing all of 802.11f, and some additional status messages between hostaps.
