Hey !

After being too annoyed to have local patches in OpenBSD's portstree for
wavelan plugin since ages, i decided to took over maintenance of it,
with the blessing of benny and james westby, the previous maintainers.

So here's wavelan plugin 0.5.5, with :
 * a totally revamped GUI, courtesy of Johan van der Slikke, more in
line with other monitor panel plugins
 * fixed support for BSDs, merged patches from NetBSD, OpenBSD and
FreeBSD, 'should' work everywhere now..
 * now shows signal strengh in dBm on BSDs, in % on Linux
 * and various bugfixes, the one most annoying was localized config
dialog showing garbage where utf8 was not available, it's now fixed.

I also updated its web page on the goodies wiki.

Enjoy this release !
