USAGI Project would like to announce UMIP-0.1, a set of patches to MIPL2 as of 20051214, which allows MIPL2 node (MN, HA, and CN) to work as a normal IPv6 node as well as MIPv6 node.
Helsinki University of Technology (HUT) Go-Core Project and USAGI Project have been making a joint effort in the development of MIPL2, MIPv6 stack on Linux-2.6. USAGI Project had a chance to participate in the TAHI 8th IPv6 Interoperability Test to test MIPL2 intensively. There were some changes required to MIPL2 so that the node could strictly conform to MIPv6 specification as well as IPv6 core specification. USAGI Project decided to release this version of software to put an end to the work for this event.
Note that USAGI Project does not intend to initiate other development of MIPv6 than MIPL2, but we aim to achieve better conformity of the software with relevant specifications. Hence, the patch will be eventually sent to the MIPL2 development team. We will continue working closely to merge MIPv6 changes into the mainline kernel.
Also note that the handy base code of the kernel and userland are no longer available at the MIPL site, so we prepared the tarballs.
These tarballs and a set of patches are available at ftp://ftp.linux-ipv6.org/pub/usagi/mipv6/.
The USAGI Project is managed by volunteers and aims to provide better IPv6 environment on Linux freely. We are tightly collaborating with WIDE Project, KAME Project and TAHI Project, and trying to improve Linux kernel, IPv6 related libraries and IPv6 applications. Our snapshots are released every two weeks and stable release is released several times a year. Please check our web site http://www.linux-ipv6.org for the latest information.
