Done. I tested it against moko12 u-boot which is shipped in NOR and against the
latest version from our stable branch. Both are working fine.

I had some more spare time then I expected so I made a release candidate today.
Please get it from http://dfu-util.gnumonks.org/releases/ and report any bugs
you find. Last chance to get things fixed before version 0.1!

Testing of -rc1 would be great but packagers should wait for the real release.

Done. I found two related bugs. One which improved debuging output. That one is
already applied. The other one is about broken DFU upload in u-boot. That one
was already on the list but nobody looked into it so far.

Harald prepared everything I need here. A release folder is already there. A
minimal website will follow.

deprecate svn afterwards. New git repo can be found here:

So please give the release candidate some good testing and let me know the
