strcompat 0.9.2.6 Released
Description: OpenSS7 Old News.
Approved for Immediate Release
Jun 24, 2007
(Edmonton, Alberta -- Jun 24, 2007) OpenSS7 today announced Release 0.9.2.6 of the STREAMS Compatibility Modules strcompat package. The OpenSS7 STREAMS Compatibility package provides the ability for Linux Fast-STREAMS to exhibit source level compatibility with a wide range of UNIX STREAMS implementations. Also, it provides LiS source, and some 2.18.0 binary, compatibility for Linux Fast-STREAMS. The objective of the package is to provide source level compatibility with a wide range of UNIX STREAMS implementations permitting drivers and modules to port easily to Linux Fast-STREAMS from any other STREAMS implementation, making it possible to release drivers and modules from a single UNIX code base with minimal localisms for Linux.
This is the sixth separate OpenSS7 Project release of the OpenSS7 STREAMS Compatibility package. The package was originally present in the Linux Fast-STREAMS streams-0.7a.2 release package, but has been separated for six releases. These compatibility modules provide source level compatibility with AIX, HPUX, OSF/1, MacOT, Mentat, SUX, Solaris, SUPER/UX, IRIX, LiS, UnixWare, UXP/V and SVR 4.2 STREAMS. The package contains all the necessary manual pages and other documentation in an 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). It deprecates previous releases. Please upgrade before reporting bugs on previous releases.
This release is primarily a maintenance release.
Major features since the last public release are as follows:
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 strcompat package page for tarballs, SRPMs, DSCs, and binary RPMs and DEBs.
