Description Stefan Richter 2012-02-01 20:32:10 UTC
Please mark libraw1394 v2.0.7 stable.

Bugfix-only release, added to portage in March 2011, strictly needed for FireWire audio devices and some other devices.

Reproducible: Always
Comment 1 Stefan Richter 2012-04-16 06:43:02 UTC
Current is the bugfix release v2.0.8 (Feb 2012).  Among else, this fixes interoperability with some older camcorders.

Please mark libraw1394 v2.0.7 (Mar 2011) stable as soon as possible, and consider to mark v2.0.8 stable rather sooner than later too.

Note that users experience multiple regressions with FireWire related software since kernel 2.6.37 (in which an older FireWire ABI was removed) because of bugs in outdated libraw1394 versions.
