thanks Mario.btw, is there a guide on how to migrate a sketch from pre1.0 to 1.0 when referring to the ethernet library?
bperrybap: while I appreciate your help in updating this library for Arduino 1.0, I wish you wouldn't spread so much negative FUD about the 1.0 release. Plenty of people have downloaded and are using it with little or no problems. I've actually been surprised at how few people seem to be running into issues and how quickly many libraries have been updated. While the release and its process certainly weren't perfect, it seems to be working well for many people. Plus, there are lots of nice new features / changes that make it worth upgrading.
