Kismet 2011-03-R2

New release to address a crash bug in Kismet when operating as a drone (either kismet_server or kismet_drone).

Just an internal API drift causing a null pointer when enumerating sources - nothing exciting from a bug/security standpoint.

Kismet 2011-03-R1

Released 2011-03-R1 at the usual spot.

2011-03 fixes problems with changes in ncurses 5.8 (for the few distributions which picked it up already) and is REQUIRED for Kismet to work with ncurses-5.8.  Also introduced is marginally more accurate GPS averaging (still all the problems of weighting and averaging, but eliminates the float drift), some compile time updates, other minor tweaks.

Under the covers 2011-03 also contains the start of the new phy-neutral common tracker layer, which will be replacing the current model of an 802.11-centric tracking layer.  Anyone working on capture plugins for non-dot11 protocols should start taking a look at the new tracking layer.  The dot11 tracking is being ported to the new layer and eventually they old tracking code will be disabled.
