Thanks, while you are at it, please fix the directory rights in the tarballs and provide direct links to the single tarballs.

By the way:

This file is not a gzipped tarball but a zip file. Hopefully you can fix this too.

Hi @kkk

In the current release 43455 and 4354 firmware did not make it to this release. It should be available in the next release. 

Regards
Vivek.

Thank you for your response.

So your documentation in this release about the support for CYW43455 is misleading, right? I was hoping to know if there are any estimates on when the next release will be available.

Ultimately, my goal (and I guess that of most customers) is to have all necessary components supported in the mainline kernel, so we can avoid relying on your vague schedule. Is there any progress or plan towards having mailine support without vendor patches?

For any further projects, I will make sure to prioritize hardware that has first-class Linux kernel mainline support to avoid having to rely on vendor patching. The additional work required to support proprietary patches is quite burdensome. I'm telling you this to motivate, not criticize.

Additionally, I'm wondering if there is anything we can do to help speed up the process. Would it be beneficial if someone from our corporate or FAE team reaches out to the relevant parties?

Thank you for your time and assistance

PS: Also, I noticed that our last question was censored. Can you please clarify why that was the case and re-establish the thread so that we can all see the progress? Transparency and open communication are important to us and we want to ensure that we are all on the same page.

Does the releases so far support "Secure LTF" in the list of capabilities for RSN Extended (RSNXE)? If not, may I know when you plan to make it available?

The reason i ask this question is because:

- The STA is not including RSNXE (RSN eXtension) in their Association Request when the AP has both "SAE Hash to element" and "Secure LTF" in its RSNXE capabilities.

- If AP only has "SAE Hash to element" in its RSNXE capabilities, then it is working fine as STA is able to include RSNXE in its Association Request.

Thanks in advance!
