     20'''PHY / MAC Hardware Changes:'''
    2121 * Separated RX_END and DATA_DONE events in Rx PHY and MAC core control logic. Rx PHY can now continue writing payload after RX_END, allowing shorter Rx extension durations. FCS Result now latched on DATA_DONE

    3535'''Experiments Framework Changes:'''
    36  * Fixed an error in an error message
    37  * Added a Python version check (inspired by errors seen in [http://warpproject.org/forums/viewtopic.php?pid=15239#p15239 this post])
     36 * Enforced minimum of Python version 2.7.5, required for wlan_exp use of struct.unpack. Version 2.7.5 or later has always been required; now wlan_exp throws a helpful error if Python is too old instead of throwing cryptic unpack errors.
     37 * Added {{{wlan_exp.log.util.calc_tx_time_log(tx_low_entries)}}} method to simplify Tx durations from TX_LOW log data. The actual duration calculation is still implemented in {{{calc_tx_time()}}}.
    3838
    3939'''Misc Hardware Changes:'''
    40  * Debug GPIO handled by new core that sits on the shared bus
     40 * Debug GPIO handled by new core that sits on the shared bus. Both CPUs use new macros {{{wlan_mac_set_dbg_hdr_out(x)}}} and {{{wlan_mac_set_dbg_hdr_out(x)}}} to control debug header pins 12 to 15.
