Here comes a new udev version. Thanks to everybody who
helped finding bugs or sending fixes.
The tarball can be found here:
The development repository can be found here:
Fix rule to skip persistent rules for removable IDE devices, which
also skipped optical IDE drives.
All *_id program are installed in /lib/udev/ by default now.
No binary is stripped anymore as this should be done in the
packaging process and not at build time.
libvolume_id is provided as a shared library now and vol_id is
linked against it. Also one of the next HAL versions will require
this library, and the HAL build process will also require the
header file to be installed. The copy of the same code in HAL will
be removed to have only a single copy left on the system.
Add persistent links for SCSI tapes. The rules file is renamed
Create persistent path for usb devices. Can be used for all sorts
of devices that can't be distinguished by other properties like
multiple identical keyboards and mice connected to the same box.
Provide "udevtrigger" program to request events on coldplug. The
shell script is much too slow with thousends of devices.
Fix persistent disk rules to exclude removable IDE drives.
Warn if %e, $modalias or MODALIAS is used.
