Release Notes: This release includes updated drivers based on the latest development version of NetBSD, a complete overhaul of the build system to remove the 2.88MB size limit, and availability of contracts for technical support over the previous release.
Release Notes: The most important changes in this release lie in an improved infrastructure that allow more flexibility, removing the 2.88MB limit that g4u previously had. Many new device drivers were added.
Release Notes: The most imortant changes are not user-visible, but are in the build process. As a result of this, the 2.88MB size restriction is gone and now only the machine's RAM is the limit, allowing a lot of drivers to be added again.
Release Notes: Serial drivers were added again for those people that need serial console. Support for IT Express and ATI IXP IDE and Promise SATA150 controllers was added. Many bugfixes and enhancements were taken from NetBSD-current, including EHCI-based USB improvements. "dmesg" now hints at pressing space/CR to scroll down.
Release Notes: There are now two versions, a CDROM version (which can also be used on DVD), and a two-floppy version. This allows all the drivers that had to be removed in the past to be added back again: USB keyboards, SATA drives, hardware RAID controllers, PCMCIA and Cardbus drivers, Wireless LAN, Fiber Channel for your SAN, Token Ring, and others. Anther important change is a new "copypart" program to copy local partitions.
Release Notes: This is a major bugfix release which intends to address all the flaws in previous releases (which are mentioned in the release notes for 1.15 and 1.16 on the g4u homepage). Interested parties can now find a g4u community with a forum on Orkut.com.
Release Notes: The most important item in this release is that "copydisk" was fixed. The default GZIP level when calling uploaddisk and uploadpart with no argument was documented, more space is saved in the config by going for the generic PCIIDE driver, and the console driver was replaced.
Release Notes: The major new feature in g4u 1.15 is an improved progress report: there are no more dots; the volume transferred and current throughput is printed instead. Other changes include a 'help' command to re-print help the screen, which was updated in general, and consistent GZIP handling. Also, building as non-root is now fully working. Due to size restrictions ISA token ring drivers are no longer supported starting with this release.
Release Notes: This release fixes "file system full" messages. There are no functional changes.
Release Notes: This release is a wrapup based on NetBSD-current as of Jan 14th 2004, made after many people had troubles booting 1.12. New drivers are for Adaptec 9320 SCSI, several 10/100/1000 Ethernet cards, and Intel and SiI SATA controllers. See the g4u kernel config file for all the details.
