Dear users of the IgH EtherCAT master,

I'm happy to announce the *third* release candidate of the EtherCAT master
version 1.4.0. It can be downloaded from:




Changes in version 1.4.0-rc3:

* Ported the master thread to the kthread interface, because of pending
  problems with the kernel_thread() function.
* Added missing semaphore up() in an ioctl(). In rare cases, the master
  semaphore was not released.
* Minor fix in 'slaves' command that fixed duplicate display of supported
  mailbox protocols.
* The Sdo Information Service is only queried, if the slave has the
  corresponding SII bit set.
* Added some missing header files in the command-line-tool code.
* Removed unstable e100, forcedeth, and r8169 drivers.

Best regards,
Florian Pose
