  magPLIP - SANA II compliant PLIP device driver for AmiTCP/IP, Envoy,
	    AS225 and other networking packages

  (C) Copyright 1993-1994 Oliver Wagner, Michael Balzer
  (C) Copyright 1995 Jan Kratochvil & Martin Mares
  (C) Copyright 1995-1996 Marius Groeger
      All Rights Reserved.

  Changes have been made by Stéphane Zermatten to the driver to connect
  a LinuxBox to an Amiga via a LapLing cable, based on the release 37.8.

  This modified version (38.x) is distributed with the permission of
  the author, Marius Groeger and compiled by Stefan Ruppert.

  NOTE: The main addition to the 37.7 version is the linplip.device
	driver, which can connect to a LinuxBox. Also there are two
	bugfixes for the magplip.device driver, which fixes a
	problem with Miami and possible system crash for big file
	transfers.

  -------------------------------------------------------------------------
			       IMPORTANT NOTE!
  PLEASE READ THE UPGRADE INFORMATION IN THE SUPPLIED AMIGAGUIDE® DOCUMENT!
  -------------------------------------------------------------------------

  This is another PLIP device driver. PLIP means Parallel Line Internet
  Protocol. Originally based upon the plip.device released by Oliver
  Wagner and Michael Balzer, this version has been completely rewritten.

  The main distinguishing features to the original version include

   * Much more line security through machine independent timeout handling

   * Option to omit CRC checks

   * MTU 256 Bytes to 128KBytes

   * SANA-II special statistic counters

   * Much better configurable, especially with regard to slow systems

   * Major code cleanup, including the removal of assembler fragments,
     globals, errors

   * Several protocol stacks may use magPLIP simultaneously

   * Installer script

   * AmigaGuide® online documentation

  Please read also the supplied AmigaGuide® document to obtain further
  information about the installation and usage of magPLIP.

  You should install this software package by using the supplied Installer
  script. If you have any suggestions or comments please contact the
  following people :

  Linux related: Stéphane Zermatten <Stephane.Zermatten at earthling.net>
  Amiga related: Stefan Ruppert <ruppert at amigaworld.com> (mainly bug fixes)
  General concept related: Marius Groeger <mag at sysgo.de>

  NOTE: Marius has stopped development on the Amiga, so don't bother him
	about the V38 release.

  Release 38.1 (compiled by Stefan Ruppert)

    * added a version of the driver (linplip.device) that will
      connect an Amiga to a PC running Linux, using a LapLink cable.
      The driver for the Linux side is also included.
      By Stéphane Zermatten.
    * bugfix: the command S2_ONLINE now returns 0 (success) if the
      device is already online.
    * bugfix: now works also for large file tranfers, no system crashes
      anymore.

  Release 37.8

    * bugfix: magPLIP can be used by multiple protocol stacks simultaneously.

  Release 37.7

    * Improved packet type tracking

    * SANA-II special statistic counters

    * Improved documentation

    * schematic drawing included that shows the cable wiring

  Release 37.5

    * on early startup time the MTU reported to protocol was not yet
      the customized value but the default setting; At least Envoy
      had problems with this bug

    * Frame buffer handling is now done dynamically, MTU can be set to
      values up to 128K. A large MTU increases performance for large
      data transfers such as in a file-server system.

    * Code more robust against initialization errors

    * ENV: settings are better checked for validity

  Release 37.4

    * Some documentation changes
    * minor changes in the transfer code

  Release 37.3

    * Timeout handling is now system independent and gives a great
      improvement to configuration and line security
    * ARBITRATIONDELAY no longer used, but supported for old config-files

  Release 37.2

    * Significantly better performance (transfer routines rewritten in
      assembly language)
    * internal code cleanup

  Initial Release 37.1
