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 127
========
Bugfixes.

Optical drive's media is no longer probed for raid signatures,
reading the end of the device causes some devices to malfunction.
Also the offset of the last session found is used now to probe
for the filesystem.

The volume_id library got a major version number update to 1,
some deprecated functions are removed.

A shared library "libudev" gets installed now to provide access
to udev device information. DeviceKit, the successor of HAL, will
need this library to access the udev database and search sysfs for
devices.
The library is currently in an experimental state, also the API is
expected to change, as long as the DeviceKit integration is not
finished.
