Details

An enhanced bridge-utils package is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux
5.

The bridge-utils package contains utilities for configuration of the Linux
Ethernet bridge. The Linux Ethernet bridge can be used to connect multiple
Ethernet devices together. This connection is fully transparent: hosts connected
to one Ethernet device see hosts connected to the other Ethernet devices
directly.

This updated bridge-utils package adds the following enhancement:

* Support for Internet Group Management Protocol (IGMP) snooping configuration
has been added, which allows multicast packets to be forwarded to only relevant
interfaces. (BZ#574466)

All users of bridge-utils are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which
adds this enhancement.
