Description: OpenSS7 Resources Donloads.

All OpenSS7 software package releases are signed with a 2048-bit DSA private key. In the following table, where a software package is listed as <package name>.tgz, the signature is in <package name>.tgz.asc. These are ASCII armoured PGP signatures. The public key necessary to verify the signatures for the packages is available under "Public Keys." When the public key has been imported, the package can be verified with:  

gpg --verify <package name>.tgz.asc <package name>.tgz.

Also, all our RPM release in the RPMS directory are signed with the OpenSS7 software key. They can be verified after importing the key (as described above) with the rpm command:  

rpm -vvK <package name>.rpm.

Please see System Requirements before reporting what appears to be bugs with these packages. For bug reports and feature requests, use our GNATS web-based system for reporting. You will find bug reporting instructions here.

This is the third OpenSS7 respin of the OpenSS7 package. This is a production grade release. All existing validation test suites run clean on supported distributions, production kernels and architectures.

The OpenSS7 package has undergone significant changes, so follow closely. In its first incarnation, epoch zero (0), the openss7 package was an add-on package to a now deprecated version of STREAMS. This changed due to the deprecation of the old versions of STREAMS. In its second incarnation, epoch one (1), the openss7 package contained Linux Fast-STREAMS and a number of other sub-packages, each capable of building and installing separately. This changed due to the increasing maintenance overhead as additional sub-packages were added. In its latest incarnation, epoch two (2), the OpenSS7 package is a monolithic package containing Linux Fast-STREAMS and most of the other sub-packages in a single build package.

Major feature additions since the last public release are as follows:

  • Support for CentOS 5.3 and 2.6.18-128.1.10.el5 kernel.
  • Support for SLES 10 SP2
  • SNMP agents are more thorough and complete.
  • Java JAIN SS7 OAM, MTP, SCCP, TCAP, INAP, MAP, ISUP, ISDN, H.323, IUA, M3UA, SUA, TUA, SPIRITS components, with JAIN JCC 1.2 and MSCONTROL.
  • Interfaces provided for major scripting languages including Java.

Major packaging changes since last public release, epoch one (1), are:

  • The package only compiles with Linux Fast-STREAMS, which is included.
  • Only OpenSS7 developed modules, drivers, libraries and utilities have been included.
  • Forks of other test utilities such as Iperf and Netperf have been removed.
  • Sub-package source and installation sub-directories have all been collapsed into the one openss7 directory.
  • A single tarball, SRPM and DSC generates a simple set of 3 binary RPMs or DEBs.
  • The entire package is released under the GNU Affero General Public License Version 3; however, commercial licensing is also available for the entire package.

Major upgrades from the last public release are:

  • Updated build system to swig-1.3.39.
  • Updated build system to automake-1.11 with full silent build.
  • Excluded deprecated and discontinued sub-packages as follows: sctp-0.2.27, iperf-2.0.8, netperf-2.3.7, osr61-0.9.2.3.
  • Documentation license for all documentation upgraded to GFDL 1.3 with no Invariant Sections, no Front-Conver Texts and no Back-Cover Texts, for full Debian policy compatibility.
  • Updated build system tool chain to m4-1.4.13, automake-1.10.2, bison-2.4.1, libtool-2.2.6a, texinfo-4.13a.
  • Addition of the following sub-packages: stratm-0.9.2.1. This package was then instantly absorbed into the new OpenSS7 package.
  • Significant feature updates were made to strchan-0.9.2.4, strsock-0.9.2.4, strnsl-0.9.2.4, sigtran-0.9.2.4.
  • Significant rework of strchan sub-package into the strss7, strisdn, strx25 and striso packages. One single driver now meeds the needs of all sub-packages.
  • The strnsl sub-package moves from alpha to production.
  • Significant completion of the sigtran package: all components moved back to production.

Major maintenance items since the last public release are:

  • Fixed hash races in open and close. This was service affecting under heavy open/close loads. (Bug# openss7 006.)
  • Fixed reference counting imbalance when entering and leaving synchronization queues. (Bug# openss7 004.)
  • Fixed timer reporting in the pstrlog() call resulting in near-epoch invalid timestamps. This was an annoyance. (Bug# openss7 003.)
  • Fixed assurances in untimeout() and unbufcall() utilities. This could be service affecting on many-way machines. (Bug# openss7 002.)
  • Timer cancellation directly from ICS races removed. This could be service affecting on many-way machines. (Bug# openss7 002.)
  • Corrected removal of SLAP_NO_REAP flag from recent kernels causing timeout problems on many-way machines under memory pressure. (Bug# openss7 001.)

For completed detail on maintenance items, see BUGS in the release.

This is a public stable production grade release of the package: it deprecates previous releases. Please upgrade to the current release before reporting bugs.

This is the third release of the combined OpenSS7 master package. See README in the release for a listing of the replaced sub-packages. Most of the sub-packages replaced by this release were production grade for Linux Fast-STREAMS at the time of release. All existing validation test suites run clean on supported distributions and architectures.

OpenSS7 no longer releases a master package and independent sub-packages. All pertinent sub-packages were combined in to a single release tarball. This was done because many package managers (e.g. yum and apt) cannot handle complex kernel-versioned dependencies between sub-packages. This release provides support for recent distributions and tool chains.

This is the third OpenSS7 respin of the OpenSS7 package. This is a production grade release. All existing validation test suites run clean on supported distributions, production kernels and architectures.

The OpenSS7 package has undergone significant changes, so follow closely. In its first incarnation, epoch zero (0), the openss7 package was an add-on package to a now deprecated version of STREAMS. This changed due to the deprecation of the old versions of STREAMS. In its second incarnation, epoch one (1), the openss7 package contained Linux Fast-STREAMS and a number of other sub-packages, each capable of building and installing separately. This changed due to the increasing maintenance overhead as additional sub-packages were added. In its latest incarnation, epoch two (2), the OpenSS7 package is a monolithic package containing Linux Fast-STREAMS and most of the other sub-packages in a single build pckage.

Major feature additions since the last public release are as follows:

  • SNMP agents are more thorough and complete.
  • Java JAIN SS7 OAM, MTP, SCCP, TCAP, INAP, MAP, ISUP, ISDN, H.323, IUA, M3UA, SUA, TUA, SPIRITS components, with JAIN JCC 1.2 and MSCONTROL.
  • Interfaces provided for major scripting languages include Java, Tcl, Perl and Ruby using swig.

Major packaging changes since the last public release, epoch one (1), are:

  • The package only compiles with Linux Fast-STREAMS, which is included.
  • Only OpenSS7 developed modules, drivers, libraries and utilities have been included.
  • Forks of other test utilities such as Iperf and Netperf have been removed and discontinued.
  • Sub-package source and installation subdirectories have all been collapsed into the one openss7 subdirectory.
  • A single tarball, SRPM and DSC generates a simple set of 3 binary RPMs or DEBs.
  • The entire package is now released under the GNU Affero Public License Version 3; however, commercial licensing is also available for the entire package from OpenSS7 Corporation.

Major upgrades from the last public release are:

  • Updated build system to swig-1.3.39.
  • Updated build system to automake-1.11 with full silent build.
  • Excluded deprecated and discontinued sub-packages as follows: sctp-0.2.27, iperf-2.0.8, netperf-2.3.7, osr61-0.9.2.3.
  • Documentation license for all documentation upgraded to GFDL 1.3 with no Invariant Sections, no Front-Conver Texts and no Back-Cover Texts, for full Debian policy compatibility.
  • Updated build system tool chain to m4-1.4.13, automake-1.10.2, bison-2.4.1, libtool-2.2.6a, texinfo-4.13a.
  • Addition of the following sub-packages: stratm-0.9.2.1. This package was then instantly absorbed into the new OpenSS7 package.
  • Significant feature updates were made to strchan-0.9.2.4, strsock-0.9.2.4, strnsl-0.9.2.4, sigtran-0.9.2.4.
  • Significant rework of strchan sub-package into the strss7, strisdn, strx25 and striso packages. One single driver now meeds the needs of all sub-packages.
  • The strnsl sub-package moves from alpha to production.
  • Significant completion of the sigtran package: all components moved back to production.

Major maintenance items since the last public release are:

  • Fixed timer reporting in the pstrlog() call resulting in near-epoch invalid timestamps. This was an annoyance. (Bug# strutil 001.)
  • Fixed assurances in untimeout() and unbufcall() utilities. This could have been service affecting on many-way machines. (Bug# streams 027.)
  • Timer cancellation directly from ICS races removed. This could have been service affecting on many-way machines. (Bug# streams 027.)
  • Corrected removal fo SLAP_NO_REAP flag from recent kernels causing timeout problems on many-way machines under memory pressure. (Bug# streams 026.)

This OpenSS7 Project release is another separate add-on package release of the OpenSS7 INET Networking package that was formerly present in the (now deprecated) LiS package. The networking drivers are provided, as well as the TPI and XTI header files for INET and loop-back operation. The package contains all the necessary manual packages and other documentation for INET components in a separate autoconf tarball. This release is a stable, production grade release for Linux Fast-STREAMS and is part of the OpenSS7 Master Package (openss7-0.9.2.F).

This release is primarily a maintenance release to support recent distributions and tool chains.

Major features since the last public release are as follows:

  • Minor documentation corrections.
  • Kernel module license made explicit GPL v2. And then changed back to GPL.
  • License upgrade to AGPL Version 3.
  • Modifications to build under Fedora 2.6.22.5-49 kernel. These changes also support 2.6.22.9-91.fc7 kernel.
  • Handle tcp_push_pending_frames() with fewer arguments and new sk_buff format (offsets and TRANSPORT_HEADER).
  • Ability to strap out major documentation build and installation primarily for embedded targets.
  • Improvements to common build process for embedded and cross-compile targets.
  • Modifications to build under Fedora 2.6.25-45.fc9 and 2.6.26.5-45.fc9 kernels.
  • Updated tool chain to m4-1.4.12, autoconf-2.63 and texinfo-4.13.
  • Conversion of RPM spec files to common approach for major subpackages.
  • Updated references database for manual pages and roff(1) documents.
  • Build system now builds yum(8) repositories for RPMs and apt-get(8) repositories for DEBs. Installation documentation has been updated to include details of repository install sourcesref.
  • Added MODULE_VERSION to all modules and drivers.
  • This release contains a significant rework of the inet(4) driver. The driver is now instrumented using the mi_strlog(9) function and uses Mentat Portable STREAMS compatability functions extensively. The driver has been validated over a wider range of kernels and distributions on SMP machines. This driver will no longer work with the long deprecated LiS and, with this release, is exclusively for use with Linux Fast-STREAMS. Please see BUGS in the release, or Bugs in the manual, to see which bugs this rework addressed

This is a public stable production grade release of the package: it deprecates previous releases. Please upgrade to the current release before reporting bugs.
