Subject[ANNOUNCE] kmod 4

I'm glad to announce kmod 4! Signed tarball is available at

With this version we are now feature-complete. All tools and features
from module-init-tools are implemented. Man pages and API doc were
added as well.

Thanks a lot to people from Archlinux, especially Dave Reisner, who
helped with bug reports and ironing them out.

We also received report from one more architecture being tested: hppa.

Please check NEWS file that we ship with kmod for more information.

With this version we postponed the API break that was planned and
decided to only add a few missing API, solve the bugs people reported
and make docs and man pages. Shortlog is below.
