    * Another huge change to the threading model.
    * Fix kismetdb_to_pcap on older kismetdb logs.
    * Detect version properly in kismetdb_to_pcap and query the tags
      field properly on older logs.
    * Handle db versions properly in kismetdb_to_wiglecsv.
    * Detect version properly in kismetdb_to_wiglecsv and query
      fields properly.
    * Handle nested WHERE in sqlite bridge.
    * Handle nested WHERE queries properly and detect malformed
      queries in the sqlite3 bridge.
    * Fix kismetdb_to_wiglecsv Bluetooth.
    * Handle the nested WHERE for Bluetooth devices in wiglecsv

  - Update to version 2021-05-R1
    Changes and Updates
    * New mutex and threading.
    * Multi-core packet decoding.
    * New 802.15.4 phy.
    * 802.15.4 is now decoded and displayed in the UI! While many
      devices report the default PAN of 0x00, it’s still a huge
      step forward!
    * New data capture drivers for the Nuand BladeRF2 with Wiphy
      firmware, the nrf52840 802.15.4 hardware, and killerbee
      802.15.4 hardware.
    * New alert UI.
    * Alerts now have their own top-level panel and are searchable,
      sortable, and have priorities assigned to them.
    * Fix Wi-Fi on Linux 5.10 and newer.
    * The Linux kernel changed how netlink messages are fragmented,
      which broke how channels were indexed. Most likely this would
      show up when you had a number of Wi-Fi interfaces plugged in
      at once. This is fixed now.
    * PcapNG GPS logging.
    * New custom blocks and attributes in PcapNG logs for
      GPS logging.
    * Shift to officially requiring C++14 .
    * Support older libwebsockets.
    * Support ADSB HEX export per-source.
    * Fix datasources in error state getting into weird loops.
    * Datasoruces flapping in some error states (such as devices
      being unplugged) could get into weird states where the UUID
      would flap; this confused the logs, the datasources UI, and
      other spots. Properly retain the UUID.
    * Fix datasources getting into a no-channels state.
    * Some combinations of errors could lead to datasources getting
      into a state with no channels, and never being able to get out
      of it.
    * Fix Wi-Fi pulling WEXT legacy channels.
    * Default to WEXT IOCTL legacy channels when netlink fails or
      returns no channels, resolve wext channel frequencies to
      channel names.
    * Fix several thread contention errors on data.
    * Several objects were shared for serialization and not properly
      protected, leading to subtle corruption or outright crashes at
      times. Those are now removed from the combined APIs or properly
    * Better error handling for TI-CC-2531 and TI-CC-2540 .
    * Handle soft-resets of the TI-CC-2531 and 2540 802.15.4 and
      BTLE chipsets gracefully, so there are fewer errors and resets
      of the hardware.
    * Add Bluetooth and BTLE to Wigle exports.
    * Adding a /&censor=1 to the Kismet web UI will censor all
      location and mac addresses (to the best of its ability),
      making it easy to take screenshots.
    * The new webserver broke CORS negotiation. Fixed.
    * Smarter handling of HT/VHT IE tags.
    * Fix error timer initialization in datasources.
    * Don’t accidentally kill other timers anymore.
    * Add new WIDS signatures.
    * Detect CVE-2020-9395.
    * Fix up HTTP header connection states.
    * Add fetch device, monitor device, mac search APIs.
    * Fix eventbus websocket errors.
    * Expand buffer sizes for remote and IPC capture, this improves
      stability significantly on some platforms.
    * Many more smaller bugfixes throughout.
    * General improvements and changes to the REST API.

* Sun Sep 20 2020 Martin Hauke <>
  - Update to version 2020-09-R3
    * Properly show messages from datasources
    * Properly show error and status messages from opening
      datasources, which previously were ignored. This should make
      seeing errors opening datasources much easier.
    * Fix bluetooth capture on some platforms
    * Some platforms / kernels / setups appear to not enable rfkill.
      The bluetooth hci capture source erroneously failed when no

    * Remove requiring a subtype of 0 on an IE221 tag for matching
      the manufacturer of otherwise unknown devices.
    * Fix potential crash in datasource panel
    * Fix a long-standing potential crash when the datasource panel
      is open in the UI caused by a race condition with the
      constructor and callbacks.
    * Fix race condition in launching datasources
    * Fix a long-standing race condition which could lead to some
      datasources not being opened properly or their types
      autodetected properly due to a race condition with the type
      probe code.
    * Increase precision of some doubles in JSON for GPS
    * Found some legacy serialization code which reduced the
      precision of some doubles (double-vector) which would cause
      GPS to display with less precision.
    * Don’t shut down messagebus processing thread until Kismet is
      fully exiting
    * The messagebus service thread could shut down before Kismet
      had finished spinning down, causing it to not show some of
      the errors causing the shutdown.

  - Update to version 2020-09-R2
    * Save more RAM!
    * Fix a very silly error in kismetdb_dump_devices
    * The kismetdb_dump_devices tool was broken and printed out
      the JSON twice, generating an invalid JSON file.
    * Tweak how IE221 manufacturers are derived
    * Look for some specific AP manufacturers in the IE221 tags, and
      then fall back to using generic 221 manufacturers.

    * Fix the packet RRD in the main device table not scrolling
    * Generally clean up compiling and squash a number of warnings
      during compiling

* Sun Jan 05 2020 Martin Hauke <>
  - Update to version 2019-12-R2
    A bugfix release for Kismet 2019-12, R2 solves a number of quirks
    which were quite annoying:
    * Solve a race condition in Linux with interface naming. Due to
      how the nl80211 layer handles interface naming, combined with
      how systemd can name interfaces on some systems, it was
      possible to have a race condition when Kismet defaulted to
      kismonX interface names, resulting in either errors or Kismet
      ignoring one of the interfaces.
    * Solve a free on an unused pointer in nl80211 vif creation. The
      new vif creation code doesn’t use the nl80211 flags
      sub-message when there are no flags to add, but tried to free
      it. This could cause a crash the first time trying to open a
      source, but the second time would succeed.
    * Fix TICC2540 USB devices. Some systems were very unhappy with
      the order in which the USB device was initialized; now it
      should be fine.
    * Work around the very broken RTL8812BU driver. While we don’t
      recommend this driver or these cards, due to a HUGE number of
      issues, Kismet will now do its best to open one and get it
      into monitor mode.
    * Much smoother operation with very very large numbers of
      sources. A side effect of the vif naming fix, interfaces are
      now initialized and opened one at a time. While this may take
      much longer to open huge numbers (dozens or more) of
      interfaces, it is much more reliable and much less likely to
      cause Kismet or kernel problems during the initial bring-up
      and firmware load of interfaces.
    * Minor output text fixes. Capture interface and base
      interface were swapped in some messages to the user.
* Wed Dec 25 2019 Martin Hauke <>
  - Update to version 2019-12-R1
    Bugfixes and performance boosts
    * Remove OpenMP/parallel processing; this resolves a massive
      CPU burn on even moderate numbers of devices.
    * Fix logging bug causing export of all devices every logging
      cycle, instead of only modified and new devices.
    * Revamped python-kismet-external using asyncio to prevent a
      large CPU wasting IO loop.
    * Bugfixes to the Linux netlink monitor controls to prefer
      nl80211, find existing monitor interfaces correctly, and to
      work on devices that don’t support IOxIWCTL iocontrols at all
    * Switch to std::unordered_map hash maps for O(1) lookups
      whenever possible
    New features
    * BTLE packet capture and basic device display, using the
      aUbertooth One, CC2540, or nRF51822;
    * New SDR demodulators for ADSB (airplane) and AMR (power and
      water meter) with no external dependencies beyond librtlsdr
      and python3!
    * New ADSB mapping UI
    * BTLE support in the UI
    * New formatting options for ekjson to simplify export to other
    * Device present/missing alerts
    * ADSB geolocation
    * Detection of CVE-2019-17666 RTLWIFI vulnerabilities
* Sun Dec 01 2019 Martin Hauke <>
  - Completely rewritten spec-file
  - Intruduce subpackages for the capture helpers
  - Add kismet-rpmlintrc
  - Package systemd service file
  - Remove obsolete patch:
    * kismet-2011-03-R2-makefile.diff
  - Update to version 2019-09-R1
    This is the new, MAJOR rewrite of Kismet! This version changes
    almost everything, hopefully for the better, including:
    * Web-based UI allowing for much simpler presentation of data
      and compatibility with mobile devices
    * Standard JSON-based data export for easy scripting against
      Kismet instances
    * Support for wireless protocols beyond Wi-Fi, like basic
      Bluetooth scanning, thermometer, and weather station detection
      with the RTL-SDR hardware, and more on the way
    * New remote-capture code optimized for binary size and RAM,
      allowing extremely low-end embedded devices to be used for
      packet capture
    * New logging format which can encapsulate complex information
      about devices, system state, alerts, messages, and packets in a
      single file with simple tools for extracting standard formats
    * Pcap-NG multi-interface logs with complete original headers,
      readable by Wireshark and other tools
