UPDATE: As pointed out by our readers, OpenWrt 10.03.1 was released some time ago, but since we didn't report on it at that time, we'll keep the article around for users who might not be aware of it yet.
A more recent version, OpenWrt 12.09 Beta, has been launched today, on October 16th. It brings some interface improvements and support for more ar71xx and Ralink devices. It can be downloaded from the same link as the stable version.
