Tag for public release.

Eric S. Raymond (57):
      Oops, fix the changelog date on last release.
      First version of new packet engine -- not yet integrated, only
      First step in integrating the new packet sniffer.  This version works,
      Yes!  With the new state machine, we don't need the 3-second delay!
      Expose another packet-engine entry point.
      Try to make TripMate and Earthmate work again.  nmea_handle_input() now
      Swith SiRF-binary GPSes to NMEA mode.
      e now iterate over 1 or 2 stop bits as well as baudrates.
      Explicit support for the FV18 is gone, instead we ship its init string at 
      Support for Garmin PGMRE sentence.  Next step is to compute this from
      If Garmin sentence is not available, compute estimated position error 
from DOP.
      Note about what we support.
      Documentation improvements.
      Baud- and stopbit-hunting works well enough now that we no longer need to 
      Device driver no longer contains a baudrate.
      Cache both speed and stopbits.
      Turns out reliable sync isn't good enough for some SiRF chips. you really
      Checking for change bits is no longer a driver responsibility, it's now 
      SiRF binary turns out to be interesting after all.  Who knew?
      Turn the private seconds member into a double so it can hold info about
      Use %makeinstall; this makes installation of shared libraries work.
      Packet engine now copes gracefully when reads span packet boundaries.
      Alpha version of SiRF-II driver.  Doesn't get GSA information out yet,
      Climb/sink needs to get published in watcher mode.
      Don't try to display track, speed, or climb unless those members
      Similar guard code on Y -- this prevents a rare core-dump in libgps.
      SiRF functions are no longer exported (because there's a driver now) so
      Arnim's code is gone.
      Get rid of some unused macros.  Report time properly, with fractional 
      We can report GSA now.
      Interpret 0xA packet type.
      Cleanup.  Can't assume that the altitute recorded here is MSL.
      Documentation fixes.
      Clear satellites with the function provided.
      Register 'i' command.
      Move the profiling hooks into the packet engine, where they are
      Compile correctly with profiling on.
      Eliminate the baud rate option from gpsprobe.
      Baudrate option on is gone, it does baud hunting.
      Python-binding initialization no longer requires a device-type argument.
      Restore X=1 notifications, the got lost somehow.
      Enable profiling all the time by default.
      Insulation against future version-skew problems.
      Update the documentation of watcher mode.
      Prepare for checkpoint release.
      Raw mode from binary drivers should report geoidal separation.
      SiRF driver knows how to poll for software version.
      clean up time calls so library will be reentrant.
      Clean up after PROFILING removal.
      Keep the size of floats witin NMEA dumps in bounds.
      Prototype SiRF driver now returns geodetic altitude.
      Put some precision limits in place.
      Correct HDOP interpreatation.
      Course and climb/sink still fluctuate in a suspicious way, but this
      Logic to automatically switch to SiRF binary...
      Make ready for checkpoint release.
      Simplify the specfile using libtool's install mode.

Gary E. Miller (10):
      Skip autobauding if Garmin type is selected.
      Garmin now reports altitude velocity
      Make xmlto optional.  The distribution contains copies of the man pages 
      Added garmin_probe().  Returns 0 if garmin_usb device found, otherwise 
return 1.
      Reorder garmin_probe() to eliminate forward reference.
      Garmin: clear unused sats better.
      First cut at adding dipslay of EPE, EPV, EPH and Vertical Speed to xgps.
      garmin.c typos
      Xgps: add flexible units to display of EPE, EPH, EPV and Verical Speed.
      Garmin: add some more debugging to garmin_probe().
