Udpcast 20050206 is now released.

It has the following new features:
 * Ramon Bastiaans' syslog patch
 * SATA and SCSI support (for 2.6 kernels. There still is a module
 loading issue with this when running on a 2.4 kernel)
 * Improved layout of the embedded filesystem: formerly, a writable
 tmpdir was mounted over /lib in order to allow write access to the
 modules. However, this mounting also shadowed user-added shared
 libraries. The new version mounts over /lib/modules, leaving
 everything that is directly in /lib intact.
 * Support network cards that have a PCI device class of 0x680 rather
 than 0x200 (some nVidia cards do this...)

Bugfixes:
 * Aliased interfaces (such as eth0:0) now work
 * Fixed some race conditions which could happen at end of transfer
 * Improved Cygwin compatibility
 * Cleanup in keyboard handling
 * Minor bugfixes in the makeImage script (bad test for symlinks, bad
 ramdisk identifier for 2.6 kernels, ...)

External software upgrades:
 * Upgraded to busybox-1.00
 * Upgraded to kernels 2.6.10 and 2.4.29

Regards,

Alain
