The FreeBSD project has published its Quarterly Status Update for the first three months of 2021. The report talks about work being done in all aspects of the FreeBSD project along with its third-party ports. Among the infrastructure and security improvements there is some good news for people who use wireless networking: "The Intel Wireless driver update project aims to bring support for newer chipsets. During the first quarter the driver and firmware were synched from upstream so that we will have support for all modern cards currently supported in Linux. Some iwlwifi driver changes were also submitted back upstream. Several conflicts with the original implementation of LinuxKPI were or are being resolved and more LinuxKPI code was upstreamed to FreeBSD HEAD. LinuxKPI 802.11 compat code was improved and as of the day of writing we have data packets going over 11a." Further details can be found in the report.
