Subject: Stream Device Support (a generic fieldbus support)

Hello all!

Version 1.0 (beta) of the Stream Device Support is available now.
It is a generic device support that can be configured to communicate
with a wide range of devices that do I/O as a stream of bytes over a
field bus system (like GPIB). 

The record types ai, ao, bi, bo, mbbi, mbbo, mbbiDirect, mbboDirect,
stringin, stringout, longin and longout are supported.

There are bus interfaces to GPIB and CAN, but you can add interfaces
for other bus types if you like. The CAN interface should
work with any CAN driver that is compatible to "canBus.h" from
the EPICS distribution. To support GPIB in a nice way, I have
completely rewritten the GPIB driver in a way that it does not
depend on any specific GPIB controller any more (and not on EPICS).
I called it the Universal GPIB Driver or uniGPIB. A controller module
for the MicroSys IEC03 GPIB board is included. It would be nice if
someone could write modules for other boards :)
