    710We organized a few conference calls with other wifi orgs (Zap Québec, Zap Sherbrooke and other upcoming ZAPs) as well as with NYC Wireless and Wireless Toronto to collect as much as input as possible and gather consensus for future direction. I (SylvainCarle) also had good one-on-one chats with Benoit Grégoire, François Proulx and the current (and past) ISF board members. This is is first draft of the objectives for wifidog 2.0 
     
    1114There is a deadline for the first 2.0 release in August as several groups will need the new features for specific fall projects. As such, some ideas might be great but not consider for inclusion in the first release. A schedule for point releases (2.1, 2.2, etc) shall be discussed here but the goal is to be consistent with stable and supported releases and an "edge" version.

    13 Goal : make wifidog easier to integrate with other related opensource projects.

     25  * Be backward compatible and build on the excellent core we already have 
    1626 * Have two version, one "mini" for limited capacity hardware (as used in many existing installations worldwide, WRTG et al) and one "maxi" for more modern hardware (with much more processing power + memory) 
    1727 * Target platform: OpenWRT (Pyramid Linux as #2 and Sky OS as possible #3, we should also look at a deb/ubuntu packaging maybe) 
     
    2535 * Exploration of MESH and other hardware

    29 This is a lots of details, but I wanted to kickstart this process as much as possible with the tremendous community we have here. Comments, suggestions and questions are of course more than welcomed here and on the mailing list (http://listes.ilesansfil.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/wifidog)
