Hi list,

I just got the response from Hanftek, while waiting for their permission
to forward it on list I'll make a quick summary:

basically they say that the USB IC manufacturer (Uli Electronics I
guess) is working on a Linux driver. Eventually they (Hanftek) will make
it available on the site when ready.

What do you think, should we "push" Uli Electronics a little bit in
order to get something?

BTW if someone else is trying to find something 'bout the UMT-012 on the
Hanftek website, don't wonder if nothing is there, they told me that it
will appear on the site only if (and when) there will be updates
