Dear Robert,

Releases, i. e. increments of X or Y in the  U-Boot-X_Y_Z  CVS  tags,
have always been announced here, and will be. The "minor" releases on
our  FTP  server  are merely snapshots to help work around the access
and delay problems to SF's CVS server.

I think there is two groups of people on this mailing list: users and
developers. For users, the "major releases" are perfectly OK to  use.
Developers  usually  can use the top-of-tree version from CVS. Except
for a very few cases I always run a certain set of tests before  ever
checking  in  code  to the public CVS server. This is good enough for
99% of all developers. If you feel unsafe with that, you  can  use  a
tagged  version; if you need even more reliability you can use one of
the "minor releases" tagged as U-Boot-X_Y_Z (with  snapshots  on  our
FTP server).

If you're interested in the  development,  watch  the  CVS.  I  don't
intend to announce each and every check-in. If you like, you can, for
example, "cvs watch add CHANGELOG".

Best regards,
