Release Notes: Adds workarounds for new eject behavior in Debian 'wheezy' and kernel 3.2.0. There is a new config option eject_delay that adds an optional delay after opening the tray but before closing it. There's also new error-handling behavior to work around the way the tray is sometimes locked after writing media.
Release Notes: This release updates the split extension to support the syntax from the latest /usr/bin/split. It fixes a typo in the man page.
