The OpenBSD operating system is getting a new feature which many people running on other platforms probably take for granted: automatically connecting to wireless networks. Peter Hessler has published code which allows OpenBSD to connect to known wi-fi networks automatically when there is no current network connection. "Introduce 'auto-join' to the wi-fi 802.11 stack. This allows a system to remember which ESSIDs it wants to connect to, any
relevant security configuration, and switch to it when the network we are
currently connected to is no longer available."
