Release Notes: A new coraid-update tool was added to help users safely update the firmware of Coraid appliances via AoE.
Release Notes: Support for dynamic minor device numbers was added. A new tool, "aoe-version", displays version info for AoE-related software. A new aoetools man page provides an overview of all the tools. The new aoecfg program fully implements the config-string section of the AoE protocol. The aoe-flush command can now operate on specific devices.
Release Notes: The new aoe-flush command tells the aoe driver to clean up its list of devices. Documentation was improved, and the scripts no longer depend on an external calculator.
Release Notes: The default number of slot addresses per shelf address is now 16, in accordance with the AoE driver in 2.6.14. A new aoe-revalidate command uses the new "revalidate" feature in the AoE driver, allowing online devices to change size.
Release Notes: This release includes a new tool called "aoeping". The aoeping tool does not depend on the ATA over Ethernet kernel driver, but performs AoE in user space by using raw sockets. Users can identify and verify the responsiveness of AoE devices using aoeping, making it a useful storage monitoring tool.
