Subject[ANNOUNCE] 2004-01-05 release of hotplug scripts
I've just packaged up the latest Linux hotplug scripts into a release,
which can be found at:

Or from your favorite mirror at:
or for those who like bz2 packages:

I've also packaged up some pre-built (and signed) Red Hat FC 1 based rpms:

The source rpm is available if you want to rebuild it for other distros
or versions of Red Hat at:

The main web site for the linux-hotplug project can be found at:
which contains lots of documentation on the whole linux-hotplug

This release is recommended for _anyone_ using the 2.6.0 and beyond
kernels who is still using hotplug scripts older than 2003_08_05, as a
number of changes have been made in order to support the 2.6 kernel

The release is still backwards compatible with 2.4, so there is no need
to worry about upgrading.

The full ChangeLog extract since the last release is included below for
those who want to know everything that's been changed, and who to blame
for them :)
