aircrack-ng is a set of tools for auditing wireless networks. It's an enhanced/reborn version of aircrack. It consists of airodump (an 802.11 packet capture program), aireplay (an 802.11 packet injection program), aircrack (static WEP and WPA-PSK cracking), airdecap (decrypts WEP/WPA capture files), and some tools to handle capture files (merge, convert, etc.).

Release Notes: A buffer overflow was finally fixed for good. An issue with invalid channels when scanning (108, 125, etc.) that was due to radiotap parsing was fixed. The radiotap parser was updated to the latest git version. There were other small fixes.
Release Notes: Airbase-ng IE order has been fixed. Improved WEP cracking speed using PTW. WPA capture decryption when WMM is used has been fixed. Memory leaks in several parts of the suite have been fixed. Compilation with recent version of gcc, on Cygwin and on Gentoo hardened, has been fixed. Now using Coverity Scan for static code analysis. Many other small fixes.
Release Notes: Compilation fixes on all supported operating systems. Makefile improvements and fixes. Many fixes and improvements on all tools and documentation. Fixes for licensing issues. A few new tools and scripts (including a distributed cracking tool). Fixes endianness and QoS issues.
Release Notes: A lot of bugs were fixed, including the buffer overflow in different tools, and improvements have been done. The most noticeable changes are the addition of airdrop-ng and the interaction in airodump-ng.
Release Notes: A few programs have been added (airserv-ng, airolib-ng, tkiptun-ng, and airdecloak-ng), others have been improved (new options, new drivers supported, compilation on several OSes and architectures, etc.), and many bugs have been fixed. There is now a library called "osdep" (src/osdep directory) for capturing/injecting 802.11 frames without having to care about the difference on different OSes and the drivers used. It can do networking and more.
