Here comes a new udev version. Thanks to all who have contributed to
The tarball can be found here:
The development repository can be found here:
The ChangeLog can be found here:
"udevadm trigger" defaults to "change" events now instead of "add"
events. The "udev boot script" might need to add "--action=add" to
the trigger command if not already there, in case the initial coldplug
events are expected as "add" events.
The option "all_partitions" was removed from udev. This should not be
needed for usual hardware. Udev can not safely make assumptions
about non-existing partition major/minor numbers, and therefore no
longer provide this unreliable and unsafe option.
The option "ignore_remove" was removed from udev. With devtmpfs
udev passed control over device nodes to the kernel. This option
should not be needed, or can not work as advertised. Neither
udev nor the kernel will remove device nodes which are copied from
the /lib/udev/devices/ directory.
All "add|change" matches are replaced by "!remove" in the rules and
in the udev logic. All types of events will update possible symlinks
and permissions, only "remove" is handled special now.
The modem modeswitch extra was removed and the external usb_modeswitch
program should be used instead.
New and fixed keymaps.
