haven't tried 0.5.0 yet, but wanted to say that the last version rocked. thankyou for the development :) The only problem I had with the last version was that it didn't identify Cisco Bridged LAN's correctly (iethey  always showed up as ADHOC with no SSID. If this is something that is not fixed in the current release (and you'd like it get it working) I'd be happy to send you some Ethereal'd beacon frames (with/without the Cisco Broadcast SSID enabled)

thanks again!
