I just released U-Boot version 1.1.4. Please see below for the list
of changes since the previous "official" release (U-Boot 1.1.3).

NOTE: this is the last release of U-Boot with full support of the CVS
repository at SourceForge. U-Boot development has been switched  from
CVS  to  git as primary SCM system. CVS support may be dropped in the
near future (at the moment the CVS repository still gets updated  for
backup purposes). For details hot to access the git repository please
see http://www.denx.de/en/Software/GIT or browse it online at

	Silicon Turnkey eXpress XTc
	TQ Components TQM834x
	TQ Components TQM8541
	TQ Components TQM8555
	Vibren PXA255 IDP

* Support for GCC-4.x
* Support for multiple PHYs
* Support for passing Open Firmware flat trees to the Linux kernel
* Generic 4xx_enet.c driver for all 4xx CPUs
* Uniform support for all AMCC eval boards
* Xilinx Spartan3 family FPGA support
* Major cleanup ARM Integrator boards
* Changed all '$(...)' variable references into '${...}'

Changes for U-Boot 1.1.4:

* Changes to Yellowstone & Yosemite 440EP/GR eval boards:
  - Changed GPIO setup to enable another address line in order to
    address 64M of FLASH.
  - Added function sdram_tr1_set to auto calculate the tr1 value for
    the DDR.
  Patch by Steven Blakeslee, 12 Dec 2005

* MPC5200:  Set PCI retry counter to 0 = infinite retry;
  The default of 255 is too short for slow devices.
  Patch by Martin Nykodym, 12 Dec 2005

* Change port configuration for O2DNT (CODEC1 on PSC1).

* Fix register for PCI async mode on PPC440EP
  Patch by Youngchul Bang, 08 Dec 2005

* Fix U-Boot linking problems (add .eh_frame segment to linker script)
  This segment may be required by some libgcc.a functions
  (like _udivdi3).

* Fix DPRAM offset/size for MPC8541/8555.
  Simplify TQM85xx Makefile handling.

* Fix data overflow (typo?) in rtc/ds1302.c

* Fix U-Boot compilation for MIPS boards using ELDK 4.0

* Add support for TQM8541/8555 boards, TQM85xx support reworked:
  - Support for TQM8541/8555 boards added.
  - Complete rework of TQM8540/8560 support.
  - Common TQM85xx code now supports all current TQM85xx platforms
  - DDR SDRAM size detection added.
  - CAS latency default values can be overwritten by setting "serial#"
    to e.g. "ABC0001 casl=25" -> CAS latency 2.5 will be used.
    If problems are detected with this non default CAS latency,
    the default values will be used instead.
  - Flash size detection added.
  - Moved FCC ethernet driver initialization behind TSEC driver init
    -> TSEC is first device.
  Patch by Stefan Roese, 30 Nov 2005

* Add support for AMCC 440SP, add support for AMCC Luan 440SP eval board.
  Patch by John Otken, 23 Nov 2005

* Changed PPC44x startup message (cpu info, speed...) to common style:
  On PPC44x platforms, the startup message generated in "cpu.c" only
  comprised the ppc type and revision but not additional information
  like speed etc. Those speed infos where printed in the board specific
  code. This new implementation now prints all CPU infos in the common
  cpu specific code. No board specific code is needed anymore and
  therefore removed from all current 44x implementations.
  Patch by Stefan Roese, 27 Nov 2005

* Adjust TQM834x PHY addresses for latest hardware revision.

* Increase malloc arena on TQM5200 board to 256 kB.
  With 64 kb uniform flash sector size the old value of 128 kB was
  too small.

* Fix miiphy global data initialization (problem on 4xx boards when
  no ethaddr is assigned). Initialization moved from
  miiphy_register() to eth_initialize().

  Based on initial patch for 4xx platform by Matthias Fuchs.

* Remove unnnecessary #include <linux/types.h> from include/asm-*/u-boot.h

* Allow use of include/image.h and include/asm-*/u-boot.h in proprietary code.
  The COPYING file was extended to make clear that these files can be
  used in non-GPL code, too.
  Also, a corresponding note was placed in the headers of the affected files.

* Add support for Prodrive P3P440 board:
  - Added onboard PPC440 DDR autodetection in cpu/ppc/sdram.c
  - CFG_FLASH_QUIET_TEST added to use the common CFI driver
    for bank autodetection
  Patch by Stefan Roese, 22 Nov 2005

* Change all '$(...)' variable references into '${...}'
  which makes the environment compatible with the hush shell.
  WARNING: Support for the old '$(...)' syntax will be
  discontinued in a later version.

* Minor changes to init flags in TQM834x PCI.

* Fix Bamboo DDR SDRAM initialization (problem with onboard SDRAM)
  Patch by Stefan Roese, 15 Nov 2005

* New PPC 405EP board added: CMS700
  Added CONFIG_NET_MULTI for VOM405 board.
  Added reset_phy() for VOM405 board.
  Patch by Matthias Fuchs, 09 Nov 2005

* Updated PCI mapping for esd CPCI2DP board.
  Add support for error LED.
  Patch by Matthias Fuchs, 07 Nov 2005

* Fix MPC85xx PCI support (pci_register_hose() before pci config access)
  Patch by Stefan Roese, 07 Nov 2005

* Correct PPC Timebase register definitions (SPRN_TBRL...)
  Patch by Stefan Roese, 07 Nov 2005

* Adjust bd->bi_flashstart on Yellowstone & Yosemite to correct size
  Patch by Stefan Roese, 05 Nov 2005

* Additional fix for external IRQ config on Yellowstone & Yosemite
  Patch by Stefan Roese, 03 Nov 2005

* Add support for Ocotea pass 3 with 440GX Rev. F
  Patch by Stefan Roese, 01 Nov 2005

* Fix external IRQ configuration on Yellowstone & Yosemite
  Patch by Stefan Roese, 28 Oct 2005

* Add support for multiple PHYs.
  Tested on the following boards:
	cmcpu2      (at91rm9200/ether.c)
	PPChameleon (ppc4xx/4xx_enet.c)
	yukon       (mpc8220/fec.c)
	uc100       (mpc8xx/fec.c)
	tqm834x     (mpc834x/tsec.c) with EEPRO100
	lite5200    (mpc5xxx/fec.c) with EEPRO100 card (drivers/eepro100.c)
  Main changes include:
  - miiphy_register routine was added to allow multiple PHYs to be registered
  - miiphy_read and miiphy_write are now defined in this file, and
    require additional argument (char *devname)
  - other miiphy_* routines also require additional device name argument
  Calling reset_phy() was moved to be executed *after* eth_initialize().
  This is necessary as now some of the implementations of reset_phy()
  may need to use miiphy_reset() which is not allowed before eth_initialize()
  as eth_initialize registers all required miiphy_* routines.
  Tested on IP860 and PHY initializes properly after this change.

* Fix conflicting types (flash_write()) in trab auto_update.c.

  Patch by James MacAulay, 07 Oct 2005

* Eliminate hard-coded address of Ethernet transfer buffer on at91rm9200
  Patch by Anders Larsen, 07 Oct 2005

  The Atmel errata #11 states that the transfer buffer descriptor
  table must be aligned on a 16-word boundary. As it turned out, this
  is insufficient - it seems the table must be aligned on a boundary
  at least as large as the table itself (in Linux this is not an
  issue - the table is aligned on a PAGE_SIZE (4096) boundary).

  Patch by Michael Bendzick, 14 Jan 2005

* Fix warnings for PCI code on ixp
  Patch by Joe <lgxue at yahoo.com>, 13 Jan 2005

* virtex2 fix for bogus download error messages
  The virtex2 FPGA download code watches for init going active during
  a download of config data as an error condition. init also goes
  active after a configuration is finished in concert with the done
  signal. So far, the code does not check for done active until all
  of the configuration data is sent. If configuration data has a few
  extra pad bytes at the end, this would cause an error message even
  though the download had suceeded.
  NOTE: virtex2 slave serial and spartan2 versions may still have the
  same problem.
  Patch by Andrew Dyer, 12 Jan 2005

* Optimize flash_make_cmd in drivers/cfi_flash.c for little endian

  As a side effect more efficient and smaller code is generated,
  which is always a Good Thing (TM).
