Bassano del Grappa, Italy - 6 December 2010

ACube Systems is pleased to announce yet another new release of the U-Boot firmware for its line of motherboards Sam440ep and Sam440ep-flex.
What's new in this version:

* Fixed wrong setting for the MMUCR register
* Introduced a new Video Option: Console. Setting it to “Silent” will produce a more nice looking boot screen (see picture below)
* On Sam440ep-flex: if a SiliconMotion 502 is present, and it's not set as primary video card, the SM502 I/O and MEM access are disabled in PCI_COMMAND register after initialization. This prevent some problems when booting AOS4.1 in a dual gfx card setup.
* On Sam440ep-mini: if a Radeon PCI card is present, and the onboard video card is not set as primary video card, the onboard video card I/O and MEM access are disabled in PCI_COMMAND register after initialization. This prevent some problems when booting AOS4.1 in a dual gfx card setup.
* Solved a problem when assigning IRQ to a video card behind a PCI to PCI Express bridge (RadeonHD)
* Video unit and Sprite unit are switched off on SM502
* Solved a problem with the Blitter unit registers not reset to default values at powerup on SM502
* Now it's possible to set baudrate to 230400 and 307200 bps (for faster debug output)
* Changed boot logo
* Reduced font size

The updated installation guide describes in detail the usual installation method (ISO image) and alternative methods (TFTP).
