Quoting from the updated release notes:

For technical reasons, it was necessary to drop support for Ralink
WLAN cards. The old driver no longer works with kernel version 2.6.16
and the new version is not yet stable enough. We intend to release
an update as soon as the new version is stable enough.

That's all what I know about it ATM.
