linux-firewire-utils version 0.5.0 release
You can download the new release from the following URL:https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/utils/ieee1394/linux-firewire-utils.git/tag/?h=v0.5.0
This marks the first release since the project was hosted at
git.kernel.org. In this release, crpp tool has been removed due to
Python 2 and license issues. Instead, a new tool called
config-rom-pretty-printer has been added as an alternate. This tool is
implemented in C language and closely resembles the output of the original
tool, capturing approximately 80% of its functionality. However some
legacy functions, such as the firecontrol parser, have been dropped.
The original tool is maintained by Clemens Ladisch and hosted on
github.com. However there has been no activity on the repository in
recent years. As a result, the project was forked to git.kernel.org
is now maintained by Takashi Sakamoto.
I would like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude for Clemens
Ladisch's work on the original tool. I am delighted to be able to release
an updated version after 8 years of silence.
