wavemon is a wireless device monitoring application that allows you to
watch signal and noise levels, packet statistics, device configuration
and network parameters of your wireless network hardware. It has
currently only been tested with the Lucent Orinoco series of cards,
although it *should* work (though with varying features) with all
devices supported by the wireless kernel extensions by Jean Tourrilhes.

* majority of WEXT functions now replaced by nl80211
* scan screen has more information (channel utilisation)
and sorting mode (MAC addresses)
* info screen contains more output, tested new support
* for displaying noise floor data (based on nl80211)
* random signal generator option was dropped
2015-04-08 - p.drouand@gmail.com
- Update to version 0.7.6
* complete redesign based on pthreads to fix terminal bug, as a result of better
design the scan window now also can be suspended (details of fix are below),
* add message for 'too much data' (E2BIG) error case,
* use same formatting (3 digits) for 2/5 GHz,
* support for changing sort order via keyboard shortcuts (see manpage, several
ascending/descending sort orders are now available directly on the screen),
* currently active sort order is now displayed on status line at the bottom,
* stabilized by-channel sort to always use the same order for identical channels,
* added 'sort by Essid' to selection of sort menus;
* add percentage for easier reading of link quality,
* deprecate use of locale settings for 'discard' information (fixes display);
* add support for Page Up/Down, Home, and End buttons to ease navigation,
* added more information to '-v' version information (ncurses/WE versions);
* fix bug in ranking top/bottom 3 channels in scan window,
* complete redesign of scan process based on pthreads to fix bug that became
visible on ncurses >= 5.9.20130504 (slackware 14.1 and debian jessie), caused
by child/parent both updating the same screen (bug had been hidden by the
internal buffering of ncurses which was then removed),
