Release Notes: This beta release ports PIKT to Mac OS X, resolves several Solaris issues, and fixes several small bugs.
Release Notes: The PIKT Reference has been substantially revised. piktc "-x" operations may now piggyback onto other piktc operations. A new piktc and pikt option has been added: "-U", for running in "urgent mode". Another new piktc option has been added: "-p#", for pausing # seconds between operations. Per-host data and auth encryption types were implemented. Several new alarm status settings were introduced. New features were added to support special test environments. Debugging, error handling, and logging were all improved. Other new features were added, and several bugs were also fixed.
Release Notes: The PIKT Reference was substantially revised, adding many more examples (especially function usage), expanding on several sections, and updating it to reflect details of recent software versions.
Release Notes: The doexec Pikt script statement was added. Retention of history info (in .hst files) in script quit situations was implemented. In 'output log' statements, the log file name may now be a computable string. 'piktc -G' debug output is now much more useful and relevant. Some issues that broke authentication on 64-bit systems were fixed along with a FreeBSD compilation problem.
Release Notes: A new command-line option for piktc and pikt, "-U", was added for running in "urgent mode" (where no lock file blocks operation).
Release Notes: piktc exec operations may now piggyback onto other piktc operations. A new command-line option was implemented for pausing for an arbitrary number of seconds between successive piktc operations. Several new script functions were also added.
Release Notes: New features were added to deepen and ease the administration of test environments, including new alarm status settings; several new built-in, predefined macros and defines; alert-wide status and severity level settings; and a reformulated "-T" command-line test switch. The script run sequence was revised. Error handling and logging were improved.
Release Notes: A problem that broke the pikt script interpreter in Gentoo Linux was fixed. A problem related to logfile input and changing POSIX standards was fixed. A bug in the code for specifying piktd timings was fixed.
