Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

Serenity Systems International and Mensys BV wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year!
A short review of the past year:
- eComStation 2.0 GA was released at Warpstock Europe 2010 in may.
- A lot of work was done in tweaking the hardware detection and additional drivers;
- The Intel NIC PCIe driver: this driver has been ported from Linux and is based on the Linux kernel module e1000e. It is released under the GNU Public License and anyone
can request access to the source repository.
It supports 49 chipsets natively and as such covers 45 more than the Genmac driver shipping in eCS 2.0 GA.
- The NVidia Ethernet driver was updated too, now using the same framework as the Intel driver.
- Java 6: this port is close to a beta release; follow http://svn.netlabs.org/java for the latest news.
- Qt4 has been updated to version 4.6.3 thanks to community sponsoring; see http://svn.netlabs.org/qt4/ for more information and a lot of applications that were already ported
- eComStation 2.0.1 will be released in English, German and Dutch. Unfortunately the update will not be available this year, but early 2011.
Best regards and happy holidays!
