I have updated the encoder firmware to the latest version (2.06.039).
This required some small changes in existing drivers, so I've made new
You can get the new firmware here:
And the new drivers here:
For the record: 0.4.10 is for kernels <= 2.6.15, 0.6.7 is for kernel
2.6.16 and 0.7.4 is for kernel 2.6.17.
Kernels 2.6.18 and up require ivtv-0.10.0, for which a separate
announcement will be made.
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 race conditions. These changes won't be backported due to the
huge amount of work needed to do that.
