it's good to hear news about v2!

For my part, i'm testing the implementation of shibboleth 
(http://shibboleth.internet2.edu/). It's work as expected with the "lazy 
sessions", so i can authenticate user from the federation and users with 
the local wifidog authentication (radius at this the moment).
For the moment, it's more an "hack", than an authenticate plugin; i'm 
not php developper, and my code is a bit ugly.
My next step, is to implement the concept of group, to have different 
iptables rules for these group. This should not be too difficult.
In the future, i must look on the code of libhttpd,and  ipv6 implementation.

If you want, i can produce debian/ubuntu package for 32 and 64 bits.
Plus, doc for radius configuration (with ldap), and shibboleth.
