We are glad to announce the USAGI STABLE RELEASE 4, dated on October 7th, 2002. The release includes IPsec for IPv6, this is a big change from the previous stable release. On this release we provide only usagi-2.4 kernel because we feel linux-2.2 kernel becomes somewhat old and usagi-2.2 kernel is not our main developing target.
The new or updated features are:
We also fixed the following bugs of the previous release:
Currently we are contributing patches of USAGI kernel to the main-line kernel. Some of the improvements and features have already submitted and accepted. We would like to continue submitting patches. Our goal is completely merge of USAGI kernel features into the main-line kernel.
You can get our complete kit which includes kernel tree, library and applications from <ftp://ftp.linux-ipv6.org/pub/usagi/stable/kit/>
We also provide a patch against the main-line kernel and a tarball of userland tools. <ftp://ftp.linux-ipv6.org/pub/usagi/stable/split/>
We have a plan to provide the binary packages for some distributions. They will appear under <ftp://ftp.linux-ipv6.org/pub/usagi/stable/package/> within several weeks. When it will be available, we will announce.
