RT-Linux v0.5 is available at
RT-Linux is an extension to Linux allowing to handle time-critical tasks.

Major changes from v0.4:

* documented RT-Linux time units

* New RT-FIFO devices. Much less overhead, better interface to Linux.

* Added floating point context switching code and rt_use_math() function. 
	These allow to use FP operations in RT-tasks. Better not get
	any FP traps.  Thanks to Walter Fetter Lages <>.

* fixed a bug in request_RTirq (Thanks to Tyson Sawyer <> 
	for pointing it out).

* fixed the CONFIG_MODVERSION=y problem
