strxns 0.9.2.4 Released
Description: OpenSS7 Old News.
Approved for Immediate Release
Jan 8, 2007
(Edmonton, Alberta -- Jan 8, 2007) OpenSS7 today announced Release 0.9.2.4 of the STREAMS X/Open Networking Services (XNS) strxns package. The OpenSS7 XNS Networking package is an implementation of X/Open Network Services (XNS 5.2) for Linux Fast-STREAMS and provides OSI conforming CDI, DLPI and NPI header files as well as several DLPI and NPI modules and drivers that convert between Linux Native IP interface and the STREAMS DLPI and NPI interface. One allows DLPI drivers to be added to Linux as IP interfaces, another provides DLPI access to native Linux IP interfaces, and a thrid provides NPI access to the Linux IP subsystem.
This is the OpenSS7 Project's fourth separate release from the OpenSS7 Project of the OpenSS7 XNS Networking package, formerly part of the (now deprecated) Linux STREAMS (LiS) package. These networking modules provide DLPI, NPI and Linux IP drivers, as well as providing CDI, DLPI and NPI header files. The package contains all the necessary manual pages and other documentation for XNS components in a separate autoconf tarball.
This release is both a maintenance release and a feature release. The major new feature added is a fully STREAMS based implementation of the np_ip(4) driver. This release is a stable production release for Linux Fast-STREAMS. Support for LiS is deprecated as of this release.
The release provides the following enhancements and fixes:
This is a public stable production grade release of the package: it deprecates previous releases. Please upgrade to the current release before reporting bugs.
As with other OpenSS7 releases, this release configures, compiles, installs and builds RPMs and DEBs for a wide range of Linux 2.4 and 2.6 RPM- and DPKG-based distributions, and can be used on production kernels without patching or recompiling the kernel.
This package is publicly released under the GNU Public License Version 2. The release is available as an autoconf tarball, SRPM, DSC, and set of binary RPMs and DEBs. See the downloads page for the autoconf tarballs, SRPMs and DSCs. See the strxns package page for tarballs, SRPMs, DSCs, and binary RPMs and DEBs.
See ChangeLog and NEWS in the release for more information. Also, see the strxns.pdf manual in the release (also in html here).
