People have contributed code to support at least some parts of 802.11i (I
don't know which particular parts are or aren't supported); I don't know
of any other enhancements of that sort that are supported, but there might
be some.

There are few, if any, plans to do anything in Ethereal.  We have few, if
any, formal plans to add support for anything - by and large, stuff gets
supported as people contribute code to support it:

There might be individual contributors who have plans to add support for
particular 802.11 enhancements; if so, they might reply and indicate what
they're working on.
