The Linux 8250/16550 Serial Driver / News: Recent posts

Serial driver 5.00 released!

This driver supports up to Linux 2.4.0test1, and corresponds with patches sent to Alan Cox.

Note this driver still doesn't support Linux 2.2.15, due to the poll-wait changes. I will get a new version of these patches out soon to support 2.2.15, I promise!

Serial Driver 4.95 released!

Serial driver 4.95 was released as a stand-alone package to sourceforge, and as a set of patches to Linus Torvalds for inclusion in 2.3.99pre9-2. This release is compatible with Linux 2.2.14 (and earlier), but is not compatible with 2.2.15, due to the poll_wait changes. Support for this will be in the next version of the driver.
