  Hi, all. I've just released version 1.3.20 of my devfsd (devfs
daemon) at:

Tarball directly available from:


This works with devfs-patch-v130, kernel 2.3.46 and devfs-patch-v99.7
(or later).

NOTE: this release finally provides complete permissions management.
Manually (i.e. non driver or devfsd) created inodes can now be
restored when devfsd starts up. This requires v1.2 of the devfs core
(available in 2.4.17-pre1) for best operation.

The main changes are:

- COPY action now sets sticky bit as required

- Added RESTORE directive.
