    Release Notes: The internal buffers of the Solaris STREAMS module ("bngfilt") have been increased to 512KB. The "strict routing" functionality has been included in the "slb" and "llb" modules. With this, a packet duplication effect is now fixed by default when BalanceNG is connected to VMware vswitches. The manual has been updated accordingly.

      Release Notes: A message queue has been implemented for the "bngfilt" STREAMS module included with BalanceNG for Solaris. Upgrading is strongly recommended for SPARC systems with poor single thread performance (like UltraSPARC T1 and T2).

        Release Notes: The "interface N access" directive has been introduced, allowing you to specify "raw" (default) and "tap" (Ethertap) access. A "tap" interface name may now be chosen as freely as necessary or desired. The "tap" interface access method is not available on Solaris platforms. The "bngfilt" STREAMS module as installed on Solaris platforms now also supports GLDv3 M_MULTIDATA messages. The manual has been updated accordingly.

The new directive "interface N init" allows initialization of BalanceNG interfaces on startup executing arbitrary operating system commands. The manual has been extended and updated accordingly.
