SMCRoute is a daemon and command line tool to manipulate the multicast routes of the Linux kernel. It can be used as an alternative to dynamic multicast routers like 'mrouted' in situations where (only) static multicast routes should be maintained and/or no proper IGMP signaling exists.

Release Notes: An infinite loop bug when deleting new (*,G) sourceless routes was fixed.
Release Notes: This release fixes a possible memory leak on Linux, missing #ifdefs when building without IPv6, and (massive) parallel build problems. It supports RedHat EL5/CentOS5 (i.e., Linux <= 2.6.25).
Release Notes: The 'mroute: pending queue full, dropping entries' kernel message error has been fixed. For the power/alias users, the number of interfaces recognized by smcroute has been increased from 16 to 40.
Release Notes: This release has new options to join and leave multicast groups (IGMP). This allows smcroute to be the connecting link between static and dynamic multicast routing. Minor changes include improved error handling and documentation (man page).
