* Fri Feb 28 2020 Tomáš Chvátal <>
  - Adjust the service to start after wrt bsc#1165266
* Fri Oct 19 2018 Karol Babioch <>
  - Renamed patches:
    - wpa-supplicant-log-file-permission.patch -> wpa_supplicant-log-file-permission.patch
    - wpa-supplicant-log-file-cloexec.patch -> wpa_supplicant-log-file-cloexec.patch
  - wpa_supplicant-log-file-permission.patch: Using O_WRONLY flag
  - Enabled timestamps in log files (bsc#1080798)
* Mon Oct 15 2018
  - compile eapol_test binary to allow testing via
    radius proxy and server
    (note: this does not match CONFIG_EAPOL_TEST which sets -Werror
    and activates an assert call inside the code of wpa_supplicant)
    (bsc#1111873), (fate#326725)
  - add patch to fix wrong operator precedence in ieee802_11.c
  - add patch to avoid redefinition of __bitwise macro
* Fri Oct 12 2018 Karol Babioch <>
  - Added wpa-supplicant-log-file-permission.patch: Fixes the default file
    permissions of the debug log file to more sane values, i.e. it is no longer
    world-readable (bsc#1098854).
  - Added wpa-supplicant-log-file-cloexec.patch: Open the debug log file with
    O_CLOEXEC, which will prevent file descriptor leaking to child processes

    * extended freq_list configuration to apply for sched_scan as well as
      normal scan
    * modified WPS to merge mixed-WPA/WPA2 credentials from a single session
    * fixed nl80211/RTM_DELLINK processing when a P2P GO interface is
      removed from a bridge
    * fixed number of small P2P issues to make negotiations more robust in
      corner cases
    * added experimental support for using temporary, random local MAC
      address (mac_addr and preassoc_mac_addr parameters); this is disabled
      by default (i.e., previous behavior of using permanent address is
      maintained if configuration is not changed)
    * added D-Bus interface for setting/clearing WFD IEs
    * fixed TDLS AID configuration for VHT
    * modified -m<conf> configuration file to be used only for the P2P
      non-netdev management device and do not load this for the default
      station interface or load the station interface configuration for
      the P2P management interface
    * fixed external MAC address changes while wpa_supplicant is running
    * started to enable HT (if supported by the driver) for IBSS
    * fixed wpa_cli action script execution to use more robust mechanism
