Looks like it doesn't work with spaces in ESS ID's for wireless
networks anymore.

It was fixed for 4.3:

I've tried it now, and it does at least work if you enclose the ESS ID
in single quotes like so: wlan='Hopstock Gjestenett'

However, in the latest release it does not seem to work anymore.

Thank you Guttorm for reporting this problem!

I think I've fixed this in **4.9** which should be available at shortly.

Here are the changes I made this evening:;a=commitdiff;h=233d4cc40ab078926fd05ea9665ab129d0246702 documents that the space must be now
encoded as %20, like how URLs work. That's the best solution I could
figure out:

At least one user wanted to be able to set the compose key. This
should be set by "setxkbmap -option "compose:rwin", which gets
triggered by the "compose" keyword on /proc/cmdline.

In debug mode, you should be able to check you've enabled it, like so:
setxkbmap -v | grep symbols

In other news the debian installer still isn't really working for
lenny (the stable version of Debian which Webconverger is based on
upon atm). So I think I will release 4.9 without Debian Installer
enabled, hopefully on Tuesday. So please give 4.9 live a try on your
hardware guys and help make the release a good one.

With thanks,
