Here comes a new udev version. Thanks to all who have contributed to
this release.

The tarball can be found here:

The development repository can be found here:;a=sum...

The ChangeLog can be found here:;a=blob;...

udev 182
Rules files in /etc/udev/rules.s/ with the same name as rules files in
/run/udev/rules.d/ now always have precedence. The stack of files is now:
/usr/lib (package), /run (runtime, auto-generated), /etc (admin), while
the later ones override the earlier ones. In other words: the admin has
always the last say.

USB auto-suspend is now enabled by default for some built-in USB HID

/dev/disk/by-path/ links are no longer created for ATA devices behind
an 'ATA transport class', the logic to extract predictable numbers does
not exist in the kernel at this moment.

/dev/disk/by-id/scsi-* compatibility links are no longer created for
ATA devices, they have their own ata-* prefix.

The s390 rule to set mode == 0666 for /dev/z90crypt is is removed from
the udev tree and will be part of s390utils (or alternatively could be
done by the kernel driver itself).

The udev-acl tool is no longer provided, it will be part of a future
ConsoleKit release. On systemd systems, advanced ConsoleKit and udev-acl
functionality are provided by systemd.
