0.9.4 released

Alec Leamas
Greetings,


After a looong delay, 0.9.4 is out. Source packages are available at
[1], fedora  preview packages at [2] and an Ubuntu PPA at [3].

This a maintenance release. The complete  NEWS is available at [4].  The
overview:

   - Several drivers has been moved out of the lirc tree and are now
maintained elsewhere.

   - Bits and pieces has been upstreamed to the kernel, linux manpages
and selinux.

   - Debian packaging available, builds on jessie and stretch; also an  
Ubuntu trusty PPA

   - New drivers: GIRS (for now, roughly an Arduino driver), enhanced
ftdi named ftdix

   - Lots of patches aiming to make configuration easier and more
consistent.

   - Lirc is shipped with a often usable default configuration based on
devinput.

   - A work aiming to have drivers to enumerate devices is started.

   - The usual sleeve of bugfixes and clean-up.

All in all: 431 files changed, 18080 insertions(+), 12130 deletions(-),
47 tickets closed.

Thanks to all of you who made this release possible: Bengt Martensson,  
Helen Foster, Jarkko Sonninen, Jon Bergli Heier, Nicolas,  William
Manley,  Bernd Kuhls, danitool,  T Chevolek, Christoph Bartelmus,

... and all others. You know who you are.


Cheers!

Mobile security can be enabling, not merely restricting. Employees who
bring their own devices (BYOD) to work are irked by the imposition of MDM
restrictions. Mobile Device Manager Plus allows you to control only the
apps on BYO-devices by containerizing them, leaving personal data untouched!

Congrats, and thank you for the hard work!

I minor issue is that in lirc-0.9.4.tar.bz2 all file dates are that of
the creation (i.e. yesterday), not the git dates.

Another issue is that plugins/commandir.c (requiring usb.h) is being
compiled even if configure correctly identified usb.h as missing

      checking usb.h presence... no

IIRC, this did not happen in 0.9.4pre2.

Greetz,

Bengt
