This is an automated message announcing the release of a new version
of the vesafb-tng kernel patch.

Excerpt from the ChangeLog
--------------------------
29 Jun 2006 * <spock@g.o> * vesafb-tng-1.0-rc2-git-20060629
 
 - Always compile the CFB* helper modules directly into the kernel.
   This allows us to avoid the "undefined reference to 'cfb_fillrect'" bug
   when the standard vesafb driver is selected as a module.
 - Add support for fb_open and fb_release. With the new console binding
   mechanism, it is now possible to unbind fbcon and go back to the text
   mode.
 - Follow upstream (vesafb) changes wrt palette setting.
 - Fix a stupid bug in the memory mapping code (fixes some strange
   segfaults).
