[ANNOUNCE] kmod 13

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]



New release of kmod 13, after some time accumulating bug fixes and new
features. This release got a bit delayed due to my marriage,
vacations, changing job and some new features getting into the kernel.
What else could happen at the same time? :-)

The most notable new features are the support for finit_module()
syscall and for signed modules. For finit_module() we try to be nice
with older kernels  and we fallback to init_module() if the new one is
not available. The older syscall is also used in case the module is

There are also bug fixes and other minor new features. Check the NEWS
file. Thanks to everyone involved in this release. Shortlog is below.
