pilot-link v0.12.0 has been released



After a long wait, finally, pilot-link v0.12.0 has been released.

See:

http://www.pilot-link.org/pipermail/pilot-link-announce/2006-August/000017.html

FC5 shipped with a pre-release version of pilot-link v0.12.0 that was
later reverted in an errata update to pilot-link v0.11.8.

It would be nice if FC6 could ship with v0.12.0. It solves major
problems (race conditions most notably) with it's libusb support, plus
it is much faster.

Back in March I benchmarked backing up 15,668KB of data from my Treo650
with v0.11 using the visor kernel module method and pre-release v0.12
with libusb.

The results were:

Using the visor method:

$ pilot-xfer -p /dev/ttyUSB1 -b /tmp/Treo650-backup-visor

Results: 415 seconds or 37.75KB/sec

Using the libusb method:

$ pilot-xfer -p usb: -b /tmp/Treo650-backup-libusb

Results: 201 seconds or 77.95KB/sec
