Date: Monday 21st July 2008 08:02:14 UTC (over 9 years ago)
Here comes a new udev version. Thanks to all who have contributed to
this release.

The tarball can be found here:
  ftp://ftp.kernel.org/pub/linux/utils/kernel/hotplug/

The development repository can be found here:
  http://www.kernel.org/git/?p=linux/hotplug/udev.git;a=summary

The ChangeLog can be found here:
  http://www.kernel.org/git/?p=linux/hotplug/udev.git;a=blob;hb=HEAD;f=ChangeLog


udev 125
========
Bugfixes.

Default udev rules, which are not supposed to be edited by the user, should
be placed in /lib/udev/rules.d/ now, to make it clear that they are private
to
the udev package and will be replaced with an update. Udev will pick up
rule
files from:
  /lib/udev/rules.d/  - default installed rules
  /etc/udev/rules.d/  - user rules + on-the-fly generated rules
  /dev/.udev/rules.d/ - temporary non-persistent rules created after bootup
It does not matter in which directory a rule file lives, all files are
sorted
in lexical order.

To help creating /dev/root, we have now:
  $ udevadm info --export --export-prefix="ROOT_" --device-id-of-file=/
  ROOT_MAJOR=8
  ROOT_MINOR=5
In case the current --device-id-of-file is already used, please switch to
the --export format version, it saves the output parsing and the old
format will be changed to use ':' as a separator, like the format in the
sysfs 'dev' file.
