So with this MTU increase is there any chance of packet aggregation so we
can make use of it?

Tom,

The new V3 release has been posted and you can set MTU to very high
values if your cards support jumbo frames.  Our WAR board, with its
very advanced Intel Ethernet can do 16K for the MTU.  Most other cards
have limits in the 2K to 4K range.

We also have released the first x86 PC Architecture version and the
updated x86 WRAP version.  They  have the same features as the WAR
version.

I'm not sure if we mentioned it but the x86 version has a free mode
that is no longer a 24 hour trial.  It saves settings and everything
works, except of course the advanced features that we use to add
value.  You can use it for fairly advance routing (quagga has ospf and
rip) for free.

We'll require a paid license for wireless, policy or source routing,
bandwidth control and our firewall scripting.  We are pretty sure that
more than 11 MBytes/sec in Turbo mode on a power machine will meet
with approval.  Device bonding will be coming fairly soon and it will
allow simple hdx bonding, fdx bonding and failover bonding.

We use the Linux 2.6 kernel and we have been able to get this image to
well under 8 MB and average ram use on bootup is about 16 MB.  It took
a long time to get here and we have to thank everybody for being
patient.  Some of you wrote us off and figured that V3 would never
reach the light of day, so I hope you take a look at what this new
release can do.
