    Release Notes: Changes were made to reflect the fact that /etc/rc was slightly reorganized in 4.9. Tardirs are no longer extracted twice. This should still work fine on older versions. rc.shutdown was also fixed so that extraction is not done before re-compacting tardirs.

      Release Notes: -mp, -sp, and -tz options were added to cfgflashrd for setting mp, sp as the primary kernel, and to set the time zone. NKPTP=8 was added to the kernel config to accommodate kernel and ramdisk up to 32MB in size. isadma and related devices were stripped from the kernel to accommodate a kernel and ramdisk that uses the full first 16MB of memory.

        Release Notes: Usage with no tardirs and/or mfsdirs defined was fixed. /sbin/reboot was added to the rdroot RAM disk to reboot cleanly if the system fails to load. Most networking firmware was added to the rdroot RAM disk so that USB NICs andRS232 devices work without unplugging/replugging. make clean was added to kernel compilation. It only runs if the config utility says that kernel options have changed. Detail was added to the kernel compilation phase for less patient people (make depend, make clean, make).

          Release Notes: This release fixes the -disk option in the flashrd parent script by giving umount up to 30 seconds (for slow flash.) It will no longer zero out full vnd image in mkboot and mkdist, which makes flashrd runs significantly faster with a slow disk or flash. It no longer uses kernel auto-disklabel for boot image, instead creating its own disklabel with 63 sectors/track (higher chance of image compatibility for folks not able to run growimg.) /flash/old revert-on-failure is more likely to work in stand/rc.

            Release Notes: The default image was made 960MB instead of 1024MB so it actually fits on any "1GB" flash card. A 50MB /root partition was made so that you can persistently save things like ssh keys. The -disk option in cfgflashrd was fixed. Error reporting for invocation of vnconfig was fixed. POOL_DEBUG was removed from the -current kernel config before compiling. rc.shutdown is copied as example option to preserve tardirs on reboot. The source image is mounted readonly with growimg, which makes failure recovery easier.

              Release Notes: This release cleans up error handling by adding a 'fallback harness' to scripts, which improves readability significantly. It also cleans up some fallback handling and forces unmounts in the harness. elfrdsetroot.c is included with flashrd (the user is no longer required to have a local source tree just to run cfgflashrd).

                Release Notes: An option to configure the serial console and an architecture check for elfrdsetroot were added to cfgflashrd.
