SW: eComStation build of Gnash (Opensource Flash player) Updated

2007-11-01
++ From the VOICE OS/2-eCS News Service http://www.os2voice.org ++

From: Paul Smedley

Hi All,

I've just updated the eComStation build of Gnash (an open source Flash 7
player), and it can be downloaded from http://os2ports.smedley.info .

A Mozilla/Firefox plugin is not yet available, but is planned. The Media
Player Connectivity plugin can be used to play flash content on eComStation
from Firefox or Mozilla.

Gnash requires SDL - details on where to get SDL can be found in the
readme.os2 contained in the Gnash distribution.

Cheers,

Paul.

SW: eComStation 2.0 RC3 "The Warpstock Europe 2007 release" available

2007-11-02
++ From the VOICE OS/2-eCS News Service http://www.os2voice.org ++

From: Joachim Benjamins

Serenity Systems International and Mensys BV are pleased to announce the
immediate availability of eComStation 2.0 RC3, The Warpstock Europe 2007
release.

This release is available to customers with an active Software
Subscriptions Services subcription. It adds a few new features and contains
a lot of updated drivers and fixes.

More details can be found at http://www.ecomstation.com/subscription/

!!! WHEN TESTING BETA SOFTWARE, ALWAYS BE SURE TO HAVE A TRIED AND TESTED
BACKUP OF YOUR SYSTEM !!!

** Netware installation from CD1 **

It is now possible to add Netware client support to eComStation, straight
from the installation CD. This is especially important for those customers
that have a Netware networking environment.

** Preboot harddisk integrity check **

There are several situations which may cause installation problems with LVM
in the install process. In this release, it is possible to disable the
integrity check at page 2 (miscellaneous) of the eComStation installer
preboot menu.

** Harddisk volume resizing **

This version has a custom DFSee engine that enables reliable RESIZING of
FAT32 and NTFS filesystems to allow shrinking an existing Windows
installation to make room for eComStation on the same system. The DFSee
engine included in RC3 is at level 9.02.

The GUI to this tool has been updated and is now using a graphical
interface. To invoke it, please select 'Paritition Resizing Tool' from the
Installation Volume Manager which can be called during installation (choose
'New Volume' to start MiniLVM).

** Bootable JFS **

This release of eComStation contains the option to install the operating
system on a JFS volume. The advantage of doing this is that the amount of
diskcache is only limited by system memory (typically 10% of available
memory is assigned) This increased cache size gives a huge gain in overall
system performance.

** Genmac 2.1 Experimental **

This package provides generic driver support for several network interface
cards under OS/2 and eComStation. Moreover, Genmac is enabled to support
WPA encryption with the Wireless LAN Monitor 3.x or better.

Genmac and the Wireless LAN monitor will be installed when the appropriate
hardware is detected by the installer. If it is not detected, you can
manually select the driver in the network installation dialog.

Version 2.1 of GenMac now supports the NETBEUI protocol.

Version 2.1 of GenMac now offers suspend & resume on a limited set of
network adapters (when used in conjunction with ACPI) - this is an
*experimental* feature.

** ACPI 3.04 & APM 1.19 **

Support for ACPI is available in this release. The current version is
3.04. ACPI will be automatically enabled if appropriate hardware is
detected. You can manually enable or disable ACPI support at page 4 (USB &
ACPI) of the eComStation installer preboot menu.

** multicore CPU support **

This release supports the installation of eComStation on a MultiCore CPU
computer. This includes Intel Core Duo , Core2 Duo and AMD 64 X2. To
enable it, you can do so in the ACPI Wizard that is launched from the Post
Installation tasks at the end of the installation. Alternatively you can
start the ACPI Wizard at any time from the install/remove folder in the
Local System folder on the desktop.

** eComStation Virtual File System (Samba client support) **

Samba is a SMB/CIFS protocols file and print sharing server/client set
originally made for UNIX world to cooperate with corresponding Windows and
OS/2 servers or clients. eComStation has a native implementation of
SMB/CIFS server/client set - IBM LAN Manager and IBM Peer. These products
have not been recently updated and may have some compatibility issues with
modern Windows SMB/CIFS implementations.

Serenity Systems International has reached an agreement with Blueprint
Software Works for the inclusion of the 'eComStation Virtual File System'
driver which provides support for Samba Client.

== REPORTING ==

To tell us your findings, please create a report at:

http://www.ecomstation.com/support/rc3report/

You are also welcome to join the TestTeam if you want to discuss this beta
and future developments. See http://ewiki.ecomstation.nl/TestTeam for more
details.

== SOFTWARE SUBSCRIPTION SERVICES ==

Please note that although some subscriptions have expired by now, you are
not required to purchase a renewal to obtain the GA version of eComStation
2.0. If you want to try this RC2 release however, you are encouraged to
renew your Software Subscription Services contract.

More details can be found at http://www.ecomstation.com/subscription/

Enjoy!

SW: Firefox 2.0.0.9 (Official) Has Been Released

2007-11-02
++ From the VOICE OS/2-eCS News Service http://www.os2voice.org ++

From: Sander Nyman <2sanderDESPAM@DESPAMsbcglobal.net>

Michael Kaply has released Mozilla's Firefox 2.0.0.9 (Official) for OS/2.
This release contains the security update and fixes from version 2.0.0.8,
as well as fixing the five regressions introduced in that release.

You can download it here:

http://releases.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/releases/2.0.0.9/contrib/firefox-2.0.0.9.en-US.os2.zip

NOTE: This release requires the C runtime DLLs from Innotek. Version
0.5.1 includes an installer. Available here:

http://download.innotek.de/gccos2/runtime/libc-0.5.1.exe

NOTE: This release requires IPLUGINW.DLL to use the Java and Flash
plugins. Available here:

http://e-vertise.com/warpzilla/ipluginw20050915.xpi
or here:
http://download.innotek.de/javaos2/mozilla/ipluginw20050915.xpi

NOTE: To have both Firefox, & Thunderbird in use at the same time (or ANY
other Mozilla app) they *MUST* be at the SAME version level, or a
mismatched DLL will still be in memory when you attempt to start a second
Mozilla based program. The easiest way to get around this limitation, and
use DIFFERENT version levels of Firefox, Thunderbird, Kompozer, etc., is
with Rich Walsh's Run! utility. It is tiny, and VERY easy to set up. To
make life even easier, I HIGHLY recommend that you download & use the
Internet Application Integration utility from Chuck McKinnis, which
actually contains the Run! utility, and sets it up for you, along with
coordinating your web browser with your email client for "mailto" links,
etc. You can find it here:

http://7cities.net/~mckinnis/code/iai1050.exe

Or, if you'd rather do it yourself, here is the Run! utility:

http://hobbes.nmsu.edu/pub/os2/util/wps/run_060.zip

Firefox extensions (add-ons) that add new functionality are available here:

https://addons.update.mozilla.org/extensions/?application=firefox

Firefox themes (skins) are available here:

https://addons.mozilla.org/themes/?application=firefox

For release notes, and a list of new features, follow this link:

Thunderbird, & Seamonkey, Steve Wendt's excellent "Tips For Warpzilla" page
can be found here:

http://www.os2bbs.com/os2news/Warpzilla.html

For Firefox "Tips & Tricks", see:

SW: Lightning 0.7 for Thunderbird for OS/2

2007-11-03
++ From the VOICE OS/2-eCS News Service http://www.os2voice.org ++

From: Walter Meinl

Thanks to the sunbird/lightning developers you can download
lightning-0.7-builds against libC05 or libC063 from
http://releases.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/calendar/lightning/releases/0.7/contrib/os2/
Simply download and then install with the addons manager in Thunderbird

The LibC063 build works with every Thunderbird, Peter's enhanced or the
official. The libC05 build works only with the official builds. However, I
found that the libC05 build looks sluggish with the official
Thunderbird-2.0.0.6 version, while it works well with the 2.0.0.4 version.
So, if in doubt try libC063.

"Lightning brings the Sunbird calendar to the popular email client, Mozilla
Thunderbird. Since it's an extension, Lightning is tightly integrated with
Thunderbird, allowing it to easily perform email-related calendaring tasks."

Have Fun
Walter

SW: New enhanced releases of Mozilla applications (Gecko 1.8.1.9

2007-11-04
++ From the VOICE OS/2-eCS News Service http://www.os2voice.org ++

From: Peter Weilbacher

My newest batch of enhanced Mozilla apps
- SeaMonkey 1.1.6 (integrated internet suite, successor of "Mozilla")
- PmW-Fx 2.0.0.9 (internet browser, an enhanced Firefox 2.0.0.9)
- PmW-Tb 2.0.0.9 (eMail client, an enhanced Thunderbird 2.0.0.9)
is available via http://pmw-warpzilla.sf.net/ . Enhancements
over the official versions are
* SVG and Canvas support
* better WPS integration
* MNG/JNG support
* included ipluginw.dll for plugin support
* high memory support
* other small improvements

All applications need libc063.dll to run, find the package on
ftp://ftp.netlabs.org/pub/gcc .

These releases pick up all the changes done by Mozilla (for their quick
regression-fix update) since my Gecko 1.8.1.8 release, i.e. between 12 Oct
2007 and 25 Oct 2007.

Two OS/2 specific changes were done:
- Fix crash when using FireFTP with local files without extension
- Include a test for "the focus bug" suggested by Rich Walsh
(please post in the mozilla.dev.ports.os2 newsgroup, if you still
have focus problems with this release)

Cheers,
Peter.

SW: Sudoku 1.01 Has Been Released

2007-11-04
++ From the VOICE OS/2-eCS News Service http://www.os2voice.org ++

From: Sander Nyman <2sanderDESPAM@DESPAMsbcglobal.net>

Robert Blair has released an update to his Sudoku game for OS/2. The game
acts as a "whiteboard" for those insanely popular Sodoku puzzles, and is
considerably easier (and a lot more fun) to use than paper and pencil. A
sample puzzle is included to help you get acquainted with the program.

This game is VERY well done, with features that include a timer, a help
file, a Warpin installation, and even a REXX program (requires WGET) to
download the daily Sudoku puzzles from the "Sudoku Online" web site.

It is available on Hobbes, currently in the Incoming directory:

Event: Warpstock Europe Steering Group established

2007-11-05
++ From the VOICE OS/2-eCS News Service http://www.os2voice.org ++

From: Christian Hennecke

In North America, Warpstock Inc. tries to ensure that a yearly user
conference takes place. Local teams can submit bids. The board of directors
finally takes the decision for a location and then provides basic support
for the teams.

On this side of the Atlantic, there was nothing equivalent. As a result,
the organisers of Warpstock Europe events each had to start from scratch
for years. There was nothing to help them with organisational tasks,
coordination, and building and maintaining the event web site. A first step
to solve these issues was taken with the creation of the warpevents.eu /
warpstock.eu platform.

On Saturday evening at Warpstock Europe, a discussion about further steps
led to a consent that somebody was needed to take over responsibility
between events and be a driving force in ensuring the next event. Everybody
agreed that this could be done in a way that is a bit less formal than in
North America. Finally, Gerrit Schoenmaker kick-started the constitution of
this new group by volunteering himself and others joined in. The resulting
Warpstock Europe Steering Group consists of:

* Gerrit Schoenmaker
* Peter Koller
* Christian Hennecke
* Keith Merrington
* Howard Winter (backup)

All members have some experience in event organisation and team
coordination. Gerrit Schoenmaker, Keith Merrington, and Christian Hennecke
have been directly involved in Warpstock Europe events in the past, and
Peter Koller can offer his experience gained from dealing with considerably
larger events.

SW: Open Watcom v1.7a released.

2007-11-06
++ From the VOICE OS/2-eCS News Service http://www.os2voice.org ++

From: Peter C. Chapin

Open Watcom v1.7a was released last week. This release fixes two
regressions in 1.7 relative to 1.6. These regressions affected only the 16
bit code generator. No new features or bug fixes are in 1.7a compared to
1.7. Note that Open Watcom v1.7 was released in August. I apologize for the
late announcement. The 1.7 release notes are listed below.

The latest version of Open Watcom can be downloaded from
http://www.openwatcom.org/index.php/Download. Please post questions or
problems on the Open Watcom newsgroups (information for accessing the
groups is on the main Open Watcom page).

OW v1.7 RELEASE NOTES

Functions using the __cdecl calling convention now return floating-point
values in FPU registers in 32-bit code. This is the correct behaviour
compatible with other compilers.

The C and C++ compilers now support an include_alias pragma which can be
used, among other things, to map long include filenames onto 8.3 names. In
addition, the compilers now support a -na switch to disable the automatic
inclusion of _ialias.h (which contains new include_alias pragmas for
certain standard headers).

The C compiler now emits warnings on operations which mix multi-level
pointer types such as void** and int**. Previously a warning was only
emitted in ANSI mode. Note that while void** is not assignment compatible
with int**, void* is. The new stricter behaviour is in line with most other
C compilers and helps users write cleaner and more portable code.

The C compiler now warns (W400) when an expression of plain char type is
used as array index. Because the sign of plain char changes depending on
compiler choice and settings, using plain char as array index is inherently
non-portable and likely to cause problems.

The C compiler now folds constant expression before checking for range
overflows etc. This enables the compiler to diagnose constant out of range
issues in more cases.

The C compiler now allows benign variable redefinitions where __near or
__far modifiers aren't always explicitly specified but match when current
data model is taken into account (eg. 'extern int __near x;' and 'extern
int x;' in small data models). The new behaviour is compatible with the C++
compiler as well as with other vendors' compilers.

The default stack size for 32-bit DOS extended executables has been
increased from 4K to 64K. Note that the linker can still set greater or
smaller stack size.

The code generator now produces better 16-bit code for 64-bit math operations

The code generator no longer incorrectly optimizes out conditionals. The
problem only occurred in very rare situations and probably only when
doubles were being compared.

A long-standing problem with use of certain 64-bit constants as results of
ternary operators has been fixed.

The C++ compilers now has a workaround for bugzilla bug #63
(http://bugzilla.openwatcom.org/show_bug.cgi?id=63). The compiler now
generates an error message referring to the bug entry rather than crashing.

The LIBC and CLIB thin netware libraries have been added to the
distribution as experimental.

32-bit DOS executables now correctly pass environment to child processes
started through the spawn family of functions. Previous incorrect behaviour
was introduced in version 1.6.

In the NetWare libraries, __get_stdout with __get_std_stream was causing an
infinite recursion. This has been fixed.

Fixed 8087 emulator/mathlib 80-bit real multiplication if one operator is
zero and second is a power of two.

The _outgtext() function in graph.lib no longer fails on 32-bit targets.

The Win32 stat() function now returns correct results when it tries to
access a file with given name and the directory containing that file also
contained a subdirectory with the same name.

The debugger now supports a "No Source" toggle (right mouse click menu) in
the assembly code window to switch on/off associated source code.

The debugger no longer crashes when tracing F77 programs that use
variable-size arrays. This only applies to DWARF debugging information
(which is used by default).

The debugger now correctly displays multi-dimensional Fortran arrays when
DWARF debug information format is used (which is used by default).

The debugger can now display [partial] strings in Fortran code when the
string length exceeds the debugger's internal limit. The internal limit has
also been increased from 512 to 1024 characters.

The resource compiler now properly copies non-resident name table when
processing LX executables.

The console version of vi for Win32 no longer quits after Ctrl+Left is
pressed followed by any other key.

WCL now correctly takes options from the environment when there is more
then one file to compile.

The linker now supports a MIXED1632 option to allow mixing of 16- and
32-bit logical segments into a single physical segment in OS/2 LX/LE
executables.

The linker now supports a NOSTUB option for Windows and OS/2 executable
formats. This option causes no DOS stub executable to be written to the
output image.

The installer now allows you to disable creating program groups or
modifying the startup environment using the /np and /ns switches.
