Next Version of NetBSD (1.1)

I have heard that a new release of NetBSD is scheduled for the near future.

If so could someone please post information on the proposed release date. I am
wanting to install alot on my NetBSD Box, but if there is a new release coming
out soon, then I would prefer to wait for the upgrade before spending hours on
the box.

Thanks,

Drew

1. Adaptec 2940 Version 1.21 problems, OK with Version 1.1

I bought a 486/133, 16Mb, 3Com509ISA, Adaptec 2940, 2Gb SCSI disk
last week. Installed Linux. Failed. Read about the 2940 problems,
downloaded the aha2940 boot disk, installed it, everything was fine.

This week, tried to do the same thing. Bought the same hardware,
doesn't work. Only difference is that the Adaptec is running Version 1.21,
whereas the other machine is running version 1.16.

I can boot from my old machine, no problem.
I replace the 2940 card in this machine with my newer version,
 the BIOS recognizes the card,tells me I've got a SCSI hard disk connected as
SCSI 0, then the Linuxkernel boots. I get the error message

scsi: 0 hosts

during the boot (my older 2940 card would normally displays its messages).

I looked in the SCSI-Howto; in section 4.2.2 it documents the scsi:0 hosts
message and says to get the "signature". Unfortunately, it says to use DOS
to get this, and I don't have DOS.

Any help muchly appreciated - I spent two days getting thus far!

TIA
