      Release Notes: Patches against 2.4.18 are available; there are no other kernel changes. dpcc has been upgraded to 1.0.1. There are better error messages on s/390 when watchpoints are used and when an opcode is out of range.

          Release Notes: I/O watchpoints are working, and there is a logmax fix. "push b/w/d, value" works again (broken in v3.4). There are new instructions to capture SSE (xmm) registers. Exception handling in RPN programs and RPN stack tracing support have been added to facilitate a high level language interface.

              Release Notes: A fix for the problem in trying to compile kernel with -g option, reinstating the check for root (euid==0) in dprobes ioctl, a fix for the oops under SMP when dprobes module is being removed, a fixed interface to crash dump (works only with version >= 4.0), updating the minimum required versions of LTT and crash dump in README, and upgrading to kernel version to 2.4.16.

                Release Notes: This release fixes the bug that caused the module list to be exported without the version suffix when CONFIG_MODVERSIONS is set, preventing dprobes module from loading. A segfault in do_getvars which occurred only on S/390 was fixed.

                  Release Notes: A kernel bug which occurred when the dprobes modules was removed has been fixed. A fix was applied to dr_alloc to make more than one watchpoint work. A segfault on IA64 was fixed in do_query. Now only smp_num_cpu (not NR_CPUS) pages are allocated for aliasing. The README was updated to include module installation instructions. Configure.Help entries were added.

                    Release Notes: Kernel hooks (gkhi) are now used. The system call was removed, and dprobes is now a character driver whose user-space interface is through ioctls. DProbes can be built as a module. Watchpoint probes ("Global Debug Registers"/CONFIG_DR_ALLOC) can now be turned off in the build. The call_kmod instruction was added. A new log target, posix event log, was added. Bug fixes and cleanups were made in query/getvars. The exit to kdb was fixed so that backtrace works. The ros instruction in cmdl.l was fixed to accept '-' in names. The kernel source was upgraded to 2.4.12.
