Release Notes: This minor release enhances PCMCIA by adding an implementation of writing to PCMCIA attribute space. The read mechanism for HID was improved by allowing read requests with no time limitation.
Release Notes: Support has been added for PowerPC on Linux 2.4. Enhanced USB support has been added for Silicon Laboratories' C8051F320 USB board. Support for PCMCIA cards on Windows 2000/XP/Server 2003 has been added.
Release Notes: An API to enable card cleanup handling upon an application's termination was added for PCI/ISA. Usage of console-mode WDDEBUG was simplified. The wdreg.exe installation utility was improved. WinDriver ISA/PCI/USB is now available for Linux PowerPC. Linux kernel 2.6 is supported. It is now possible to develop your driver before your PCI hardware is available. All WinDriver API calls can be logged using the DriverWizard. USB support for Texas Instruments' chips was enhanced. 32-bit and 64-bit Solaris 8-9 on SPARC is supported. 32-bit Solaris 8-9 on x86 is supported. 32-bit user applications are supported on 64-bit Solaris kernel.
Release Notes: A previous problem with Linux 2.4 in which there was a failure in reading from the PCI card's memory on some computers was resolved. The problem has been resolved by calling the pci_enable_device() function. USB device reset and wakeup functions were added.
Release Notes: Support for Linux kernel 2.4.20 was added. Installation problems (which occurred since v6.00) on multi-processor (SMP) Linux systems were resolved. Linux Scatter/Gather DMA was improved to correctly handle HIGHMEM support. A previous crash in the case of repeated allocations of small Contiguous DMA buffers with WD_DMALock() calls was resolved.
Release Notes: In the Linux USB section, a problem where an interrupt transfer could cause a crash due to incorrect pipe type detection in the case of transfer failure was fixed, as were problems where Linux occasionally returned the incorrect error status, and with handling of devices with multiple interfaces.
Release Notes: This version added support for USB on Linux, code generation for Visual Basic 6.0 (and a USB VB sample), and added user mode APIs for USB HID devices. The APIs for USB on all operating systems were improved. The wizard and wddebug_GUI icons were fixed on Linux. When failing to register a device, the parallel port sample in Visual Basic no longer spawns infinite message boxes. A Delphi compilation error that occured when range checking was turned on was fixed.
Release Notes: Support was added for Linux kernels compiled with gcc 3.x (such as the one included with Red Hat 8.0). PCI bus mastering is now enabled on Linux to solve a problem with several BIOSes that do not support this natively.
Release Notes: Several transfer commands that acknowledge an interrupt/for interrupt acknowledgement can now be set in the DriverWizard. The Debug Monitor buffer overflow behavior was improved so that older messages are lost instead of newer messages. WinDriver can now automatically install an INF file for a device which is not connected to the computer. KernelDriver can now be loaded prior to loading WINDRVR.SYS.
