>From the article:

Today, the FCC issued an updated version of the guidance that strips
out the DD-WRT reference. Instead, it now says:

   Describe, if the device permits third-party software or firmware
installation, what mechanisms
   are provided by the manufacturer to permit integration of such
functions while ensuring that
   the RF parameters of the device cannot be operated outside its
authorization for operation
   in the US. In the description include what controls and/or
agreements are in place with
   providers of third-party functionality to ensure the devices’
underlying RF parameters are
   unchanged and how the manufacturer verifies the functionality.

FCC Engineering and Technology Chief Julius Knapp also wrote a blog
post titled, "Clearing the Air on Wi-Fi Software Updates."
