The PCI Hotplug core and Compaq driver got merged into 2.4.15 with the great -ac flush. This exposed the code to a lot more people, and a potential security problem was pointed out to me and quickly fixed.Linux USB
Because some people kept complaining that I had broken the old PCI Hotplug GUI tools, I knocked together pciview using GTK+. It came out quite well. GTK+ rocks, as it is so easy to create GUI programs. Glade also helps out a lot in prototyping different layouts.
Well, I'm now the official maintainer, instead of just the temporary maintainer. Should be an interesting time... :)
