The 0.4 version of Pat-gensio has been very stable, no issues.  This version upgrades to the 2.5.0 version of gensio, which has a cool new feature, the keepopen gensio.  This gensio has been added to the default configuration; basically, if the other end of a connection goes away (like you kill the modem and restart it) it will automatically reconnect when it comes back.

If you upgrade, you can add this feature by modifying your gax25 gensio line in your "pat configure" to be something like:

   "gensio": "kiss,keepopen(discard-badwrites=yes),tcp,localhost,8001",

As before, binaries are available at https://github.com/cminyard/pat/releases/tag/gensio-0.5 and build instructions are at https://github.com/cminyard/pat/tree/gensio-work and scroll to near the bottom  under the "Pat with native AX.25" label.

For a review, this version of Pat is one with an AX25 packet stack built in.  This means:

* You don't have to mess around with the Linux AX25 stack for packet.  It's all configured in Pat.
* It works on Windows and Mac.

Also, I have ported over some patches and added my own patches to fix some forms issues; it will now properly load the To field and others from a form.
