|Subject:||[ANNOUNCE] udev 070 release and change of maintainer|
|Date:||Thu, 15 Sep 2005 10:49:55 -0700|
I've released the 070 version of udev. It can be found at: kernel.org/pub/linux/utils/kernel/hotplug/udev-070.tar.gz udev allows users to have a dynamic /dev and provides the ability to have persistent device names. It uses sysfs and /sbin/hotplug and runs entirely in userspace. It requires a 2.6 kernel with CONFIG_HOTPLUG enabled to run. Please see the udev FAQ (now updated!) for any questions about it: kernel.org/pub/linux/utils/kernel/hotplug/udev-FAQ For any udev vs devfs questions anyone might have, please see: kernel.org/pub/linux/utils/kernel/hotplug/udev_vs_devfs And there is a general udev web page at: http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/utils/kernel/hotplug/udev... This release fixes a few small bugs found in the 069 release, and marks the change of the maintainer of udev from me to Kay Sievers <firstname.lastname@example.org>. Kay has been instrumental in getting udev as feature complete and stable and actually working well. Without his help, it wouldn't be the program it is today. He also was the one who implemented the persistant naming policy for disks, which is now in all of the major Linux distributions (and a few minor ones.) I'll still be around and doing minor work on udev, but Kay is the one who is now in charge, and I know it is in good hands. thanks, greg k-h Summary of changes from v069 to v070 ============================================ Amir Shalem: udevd: fix udevd read() calls to leave room for null byte Edward Goggin: scsi_id: derive a UID for a SCSI-2 not compliant with the page 83 Greg Kroah-Hartman: fix nbd error messages with a gentoo rule hack fix scsi_id rule in gentoo config file JÃ¼rg Billeter: EXTRAS/Makefile: fix install targets to match main Makefile Kay Sievers: volume_id: fix error handling with failing read() EXTRAS: cleanup and sync all Makefiles add install test to 'make buildtest' update RELEASE-NOTES Olivier Blin: fix a debug text typo in udev_rules.c - To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe linux-kernel" in the body of a message to email@example.com More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html Please read the FAQ at http://www.tux.org/lkml/
