Official location:

Total of 79 closed issues: ... sed&page=1

Improvements made to:
Ethernet support
SPI support
I2C wiring
Serial.peek() implemented
Print.h fixes

Issue #88
In the TCPIP and UDP code a 4 byte IP address is used, but it is also cast to an int and there is a potential for memory miss-alignment and then GP faults on the unaligned memory dereference of the int. -Wcast-align will warn the user of potential bad casts that might cause this problem.

Issue #51
Sketch path added to compile. This allows for support of ChipKit USB, Ethernet, and CAN Bus examples, and libraries.

Many more changes. I'll provide more notes. This is a major improvement, and I'm sure there is more to fix, but the group has come along ways in the last couple of months.
