We received the official permission from Hauppauge to repackage and redistribute the firmware files. The license pair is now part of all distributed firmware archives. We are very grateful to Hauppauge for giving us this permission and for Axel Thimm for writing these licenses. Also many thanks to Intel's legal department for allowing to derive them from their firmware licensing texts.

I strongly recommend that people upgrade to kernel 2.6.18 or up and ivtv-0.10.x or up. Driver maintenance for older kernels (in ivtv-0.4.x, 0.6.x and 0.7.x) will be effectively discontinued. Version 0.10.0 and up is where the development effort will be concentrated. This version has seen a major internal redesign and clean up in order to solve certain rare conditions. These changes won't be backported due to the huge amount of work needed to do that.

This is an early warning: some time this year the interface between applications and ivtv will change. In practice this will mean that people will have to upgrade to a newer 0.4.x or up release and anything before that will no longer be supported. This is a consequence of merging the driver into the kernel. More background on this can be found here.
