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: 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: 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.
Release Notes: Support for 64-bit data transfer on x86 platforms running 32-bit operating systems was was added to Jungo, as well as an API for the PLX Technology, Inc. PCI 9656 64-bit I/O Accelerator chip. Driver distribution with WinDriver was made easier.
Release Notes: 64-bit data transfer on x86 machines was added. This feature allows new 64-bit buses to be used on existing 32-bit Linux operating systems for improved performance. Enhanced support for PLX Technology's new product line, the PCI 9656 I/O Accelerator chip, was added. Code generation for user drivers now generates documentation for both the header and body of the functions. Dual processor and SMP support were added on Linux. Scatter/gather DMA support on Linux 2.4 was added.
Release Notes: A Graphical User Interface (GUI) was added to WinDriver for Linux. A Remote Access feature was incorporated into DriverWizard. Remote Target is currently supported on Windows NT/2000, Linux, and Solaris. Remote Host supported on NT/2000/9x/ME/CE, VxWorks, Solaris, and Linux. The evaluation timeout per session on Linux/Solaris/VxWorks/WinCE was expanded to 30 minutes. The electronic documentation (PDF) now has thumbnails, bookmarks, and cross-referenced hyperlinks in the references sections. DriverWizard now includes several fixes in files saving process and in reading from the registry.
