The products that are supported by the e1000 driver are at or are nearing end of
life. Therefore, the e1000 driver is changing to kernel support mode only. This
means the e1000 driver will not be released to SourceForge.net any more (the
last e1000 version released was 8.0.35). Any bug fixes or changes will be made
only upstream in the kernel.org version.
Please submit any issues through the bug tracker on http://sourceforge.net/projects/e1000/
