The development group [0] of LUGRo-Mesh [1] announces that already
it's avalaible the second release of the firmware Nightwing [2],
version 0.6-beta1 [3].

Nightwing allows the creation of Wireless Mesh Networks [4], with a
fast and easy deployment. Requires an Atheros wireless chip, and a
minimum of 4MB of flash memory and 16MB of RAM memory. It can be
instaled in devices from Ubiquiti like the NanoStation, from Accton
like the Fonera 2200, and many more devices that cover the minimun
requirements.

Some of the new characteristics introduced are:
* Use of the protocol B.A.T.M.A.N.-Experimental (BMX) [5]
* The Public connection Interface es now managed by the captive portal
WiFiDog [6].
* Each Access Point has an unic SSID for every node.
* A WiFiDog server [7] is avalaible for the LUGRo-Mesh Network. Thanks
to Maximiliano Müller of SitiosHispanos.com for supplying a VPS for
the server.

The group has mailing list for the Nightwing firmware [8] and for the
group it self [9].

Also, it's avalaible the repository of the LUGRo-Mesh Development Group [10].
