Please do so! - I think it´s a vluable feature for many users. Maybe you could provide a script for converting the old file format to the new one.
I run Kismet / Newcore on a Notebook I take with me to customers for network-maintenance. Many of them run closed networks. It´s a big help for me to see the Network names right away (since Kismet has decloaked them already at a former occasion) so I know which network to monitor i.e. for reconnects, encryption etc.. Otherwise I would have to focus on their MAC adresses instead which would be quite uncomfortable.
At the moment Newcore doesn´t remember SSIDs it has already decloaked. Will it be able to do so in the future? Or will there be a way to enter the data manually?
