It had originally expected this to be a fairly small update of assorted bug fixes. But when it came to putting it together, there turned out to be quite a lot of enhancements.
One - the major one - is the auto-assembly that I mentioned in an earlier past. Others were due to the fact that the maintainer of the Debian package took decided at the same time that it was time to sort through bug reports and forward some to me. Still others were just normal stuff on the linux-raid list.
All it all there is a reasonable amount of stuff in there. Hopefully it will get some testing, and even better: will get some feed back. The only way to make it the best is for people to tell me what is wrong with it.
