Release Notes: QUI, spinlocks, mutexes, timers, scheduling, and process control documentation has been added. Some build fixes have been added. A new ODS2 driver has been written.
Release Notes: Some documentation has been added.
Release Notes: An update was made for compiling on lenny/i386. No bugs have been fixed since the last release.
Release Notes: Some fixes and new bugs were added. A GCC variable argument count on i386 was added.
Release Notes: Better and more command line qualifier handling is available. The possibility to set and show identifier ACL was added. No bugs have been fixed. SMP problems still remain. The outgoing telnet client has problems withing CLI parsing and output. Only the i386 disk image has been tested.
Release Notes: This release adds the system services $setswm (not yet used by swapper) and $setprt (also untested).
Release Notes: Bliss is now version 0.211. The terminal driver needed its own spinlocks. The Sys$qiow system service did not do everything from the right mode. Exe$forkdpsth did not set proper ipl. Ioc$iopost lost irps posted on the non-primary CPU due to the softint running on the primary CPU; exe$finishio and exe$abortio were changed. Exe$finishio and exe$abortio did not set proper ipl. RMS file resources got used up, now file descriptor reference count is added. Ioc$iopost remqhi had problems with spinlocks, so it was changed to global_cli. Memory management look_aside_list needed spinlocks.
Release Notes: Driver timeout support was added for ide, ne2k, and 3c59x-boomerang. An issue where the lock manager referenced stack local data from another routine was fixed. Missing locks were included in some drivers. SMP problems remain and the 3c59x driver still has some problems.
Release Notes: The sysman utility uses io load, but no practical driver is loaded yet. The driver interface now bears a closer resemblance to the one from VMS (and the mailbox driver uses it). Disk device naming was changed, so where partition 1 and 2 were called dqa1 and dqa2, now they are called dqa001 and dqa002. The backup utility had a gets buffer overflow vulnerability. The CLI routines and analyze/system examine had a number handling problem. The getdvi return length was missing, and a fix was made for return length size. Instability due to some pte zeroing in p1pp initialization was fixed.
Release Notes: Iociopost did not change qast postef order when having PCB current state. Spinlocks were missing when allocting pfns. The terminal driver and locking were fixed. A new spinlock for interlocked remque and insque has been written. The terminal driver terminator can handle xon and xoff marks. Some I/O locks were temporaly moved due to global I/O database. A new ODS2 VFS driver for Linux is available.
