Release Notes: This release improved documentation, installation (with Asus EeePC support), keyboard use (installation, log-in without mouse), the Intel eepro100 network driver, Intellipoint PS/2 mice, the Web browser (with cookie support fixed), SDL support (with hundreds of programs available), multimedia (Flash videos), and system structure. 3D support (Mesa3D, PicoGL), REBOL 3, Boron (programming), auto-login without password, memory mapped and async I/O POSIX interfaces in the kernel, a native FTP client, QEMU (virtual machines), Samba (Windows networking), OpenSSH server (remote access), SQLite, and Fossil version control were added.
Release Notes: This release focuses on maturing existing functionality, improving security, ongoing system restructuring, and making the system a suitable base for third-party package managers. About half the packages in the system were upgraded. The latest development version of the Cheyenne Web server is included, providing a new WebSockets framework for advanced persistent, full-duplex communication with the latest Web browsers. The super user account has been renamed from "root" to "system". Logging in to this account has been disabled: there is a new account named "administrator" to manage the system.
Release Notes: This release is important because it focused on making the system usable as a server. Several popular servers and several innovative REBOL software stacks were added. Out of the box, Syllable Server can now accept remote SSH logins over the network, run a Web server on the Cheyenne REBOL server, run an FTP server, and more. Special attention has been paid to programming, with support for Model-View-Controller Web applications in QuarterMaster and network applications with the REBOL/Services Service Oriented Architecture. The Genode Nitpicker windowing system is also included.
Release Notes: Support for scanners has been added with the inclusion of the SANE scanner package. There are new drivers for the D-Link DL2000 Gigabit network card and S3 DeltaChrome video card. There have been a number of improvements and fixes to the network stack which gives significantly better network performance. Development files such as headers and static libraries have also been split off from the base installation. SimpleBurn and cdrtools are now part of the base installation, making it easy to create and burn CDs with Syllable.
Release Notes: A versioned package pool was added, to facilitate shipping older versions of libraries to maintain backward compatibility for applications. Terminal initialisation and printing were fixed. GLibC, CoreUtils, BASh, ORCA, the printing packages, and others were updated. IPTables is included, so Syllable Server can be used to build a firewall. The wireless tools are included for configuring wireless networks. The ALSA userspace library and tools were added to provide full access to the audio system. All separate binary packages for Server 0.1 are still valid on Server 0.2.
Release Notes: Highlights of this release include initial support for printing with CUPS, support for Broadcom Gigabit Ethernet cards, support for USB CD-ROM drives, and rendering and graphics speed improvements. The GRUB boot loader can now be installed automatically. There are new versions of many applications, including AEdit, AView, and Whisper, as well as improved media support and playback. There are of course the usual bugfixes and improved application compatibility and many improved drivers.
Release Notes: A new audio framework was included for the media server. Non-English-speaking users can now take advantage of a number of newly translated applications. A switch to GCC 4.1.1 has yielded noticeable performance improvements. Users with SMP or Hyperthreaded machines will benefit from improvements to SMP support. There are new versions of important applications, including ABrowse and Whisper. Finally, this release adds support for NTFS filesystems, USB keyboards, and gigabit Ethernet controllers.
Release Notes: This release includes improved audio/video support, support for CD writing with Cdrtools 2.1, enhanced POSIX compliance, a large list of kernel enhancements including basic ACPI support, a major new version of the GNU C library, and several installation related fixes.
Release Notes: This release includes new and updated drivers and a large number of long overdue kernel enhancements. Highlights include an Intel i855 video driver, SiS900 and nVidia nForce NIC drivers, updates to drivers for nVidia Riva and GeForce cards and support for the GeForceFX 6600 & 6800 cards, better USB disk performance, and enhanced PCI and ATA device management. This release also includes a number of kernel improvements and bugfixes done by Jake Hamby.
Release Notes: This release is much faster than previous releases due to a new ATA disk driver, faster graphics rendering, and the use of a newer compiler. There are new drivers for ATi Radeon and VMWare video, Yamaha DSE/DSE1 audio, and a new USB UHCI driver. Libsyllable and the Appserver have been given an overhaul that gives them a cleaner and more flexible API.
