Software News   Software News : Roadshow 1.13 released
   posted by AndreasM on 2-May-2017 6:39:32 (368 reads)
The Roadshow TCP/IP stack for the Amiga has been updated to version 1.13 and is available immediately. An updated demonstration version is available, too, as well as the updated software development kit.

A free update is available for customers who are using Roadshow version 1.12, upgrading it to version 1.13. Note: if you are still using Roadshow versions 1.8 or 1.11 then you will need to upgrade to version 1.12 first before you can upgrade it to version 1.13.

The changes in Roadshow 1.13 are as follows:

1. Polish localization files were contributed by Tomasz Potrykus,
which can be installed as part of the update process.

2. The "ping" command has been updated to support new options, which can
be used limit the number of test packets sent, either by
time or count. The time interval measurements taken and displayed
were upgraded and are now much more accurate than they were before.

3. The "traceroute" command shares the same time interval measurement
improvements with the "ping" command.

4. The "wget" command no longer crashes if too little stack memory
is available in the shell. Also, the data throughput rate calculation
now works correctly, which both affects the display of the estimated
remaining transmission time and the data rate limiting feature of
the "wget" command. Finally, the short form command line options (e.g.
"-q" for "--quiet") never worked correctly. This has been fixed.

5. Several related bugs were fixed within "bsdsocket.library",
the "SampleNetSpeed" and "ppp_sample" programs, which could
lead to memory corruption or seemingly random crashes.

6. The "ConfigureNetInterface" did not process the DHCPUNICAST
parameter correctly. This has been fixed.

7. The specially optimized versions of "bsdsocket.library",
"ppp-serial.device" and "ppp-ethernet.device" for use on Amigas with
CPUs other than the MC68000 and MC68010 can no longer result in crashes
if they are used on systems for which they are not suited.

8. The "TCP:" handler leaked memory whenever it was opened. This
has been fixed.

9. How much memory "bsdsocket.library" will use for incoming network traffic
can now be tweaked. This is helpful for applications which keep
running for day or weeks on end. Previously, "bsdsocket.library" could
end up allocating much more memory than strictly necessary, causing other
active software to run out of free memory. Because the choice to
spend as little memory as possible comes with a cost (slightly lower
data throughput), this option is not enabled by default.

10. The software development kit has been updated, fixing bugs in the example
source code, the "wget" command, as well as replacing the inline header
files for the GCC 68k compiler.

11. The reference documentation has been updated.

The "ReadMe" file of the "Roadshow" update archive contains more detailed information about the contributors who helped to make this update possible, as well as more detailed descriptions of the changes.

The update archive does not contain the updated documentation or source code. Please download the demonstration version and/or the software development kit, respectively, to find the new material.
