Old OS/2 publicity

Fri, 20140926 - 09:23 -0600

I'm currently in the process of cleaning out some old files. Rather than toss I'm scanning some of the OS/2 promotional material and uploading it to Google sites. The URL for the site is:
https://sites.google.com/site/docsxx14/

There are currently only a few items, though I'll be adding more from time to time. The "Contents" page has a short description of each item. Some PL/I for OS/2 documents are filed under "PL/I documents" and non-PL/I OS/2 material under "OS/2 documents".

Weasel mail server is now freeware

Wed, 20140917 - 04:24 -0600

The Weasel mail server, which was formerly shareware, is now re-released
as open-source freeware, governed by the GNU GPL licence. There is no
longer any distinction between registered and unregistered versions. You
can get version 2.0 from

www.pmoylan.org/pages/os2/Weasel.html
or
ftp://pmoylan.org/Weasel/

Source code and the IMAP extension are also available in that FTP directory.

Weasel is a mail server that can be configured as either a single-domain
server or a multidomain server. For more details, the manual is on-line
on the above web site. The Weasel program is a mature application, with
full support for the POP3 and SMTP protocols. The IMAP extension still
has some limitations.

Warpstock 2014 presentation announcment: Lars Erdmann

Mon, 20140915 - 12:40 -0600

My apologies to any that already received this but apparently many did not and I don't know who did or did not.

Warpstock is pleased to announce a presentation by Lars Erdmann, who will discuss his work regarding the USB stack and his plans for updating the USB Mass Storage Device Driver. In addition, Lars makes the following offer:

Anyone having one or more USB storage devices that is/are incompatible with the current USB drivers should bring the device(s) to Warpstock to give (donate) to Lars, as he cannot buy every single storage device which does not work with USBMSD.ADD. He will then take it/them back to Germany for his use in testing and reworking USBMSD.ADD (please no other devices besides storage devices).

As multi-LUN support also needs to be added, these devices (USB attached card readers; devices which appear as "fake" CD-ROMs to allow autostart under Windows, etc.) are also of interest.

Warpstock is the annual conference for eComStation and OS/2 users. Warpstock 2014 will be held at the Drury Inn St. Louis Airport, in St. Louis, Missouri October 24 - 26, 2014. Warpstock 2014 promises to be a can't-miss event, as new developments in the community will be discussed, and practical tips and techniques for getting the most out of existing systems and new hardware will be on the agenda.

DFSee 12.1 released: EXFAT support, enhancements and fixes

Thu, 20140911 - 13:34 -0600

DFSee version 12.1 has been released, with new functionality and several fixes.

It is a MINOR release, with support for the EXFAT filesystem as the
main added feature, and several other small enhancements and fixes.

EXFAT is a 32-bit FAT filesystem optimized for (very large) removable media
like SD-cards used with cameras. It has an additional allocation-bitmap that
avoids a lot of the normal overhead when writing contiguous files. It is
now supported by Windows, OS-X and Linux, and is the recommended filesystem
for SD-cards larger than 32Gb.


DFSee is a very powerful disk-utility with disk partitioning,
filesystem and disk analysis, some file recovery and UNDELETE
and smart imaging or cloning of partitions or complete disks.


More details at:
www.dfsee.com/dfsee/

Direct download links from the DFSee website:

Functional changes since 12.0

- AL command, show allocation free/used for specified LSN and optional size
- BATCH command, added '-?' usage help and '?' for batch status display
- Binary display current sector (Hexdump) keyboard shortcut changed to Ctrl+B
- CREATE keep correct minimum size for first logical (move up to cylinder 1)
- DIALOG 'Partition Table Edit' (PTE), fix PT-entry line to get initial focus
- DIALOG 'Set Geometry', automatically set RADIO buttons to match current L-GEO
- DISK warning about OS/2 non-standard sectors/track fixed for disks > 1 TiB
- EXFAT BOOTSYNC: calculate CRC and write to one or both boot areas (sync)
- EXFAT SAVETO implemented for files, directories, and bitmap+upcase sysfiles
- EXFAT Volume Label recgonition from Root directory in table / part -V
- EXFAT bootsector recognition in MBR or GPT partitions and Large-Floppy

bww bitwise works GmbH progress update

Wed, 20140910 - 10:07 -0600

*bww bitwise works GmbH progress update September 10, 2014*

We are finally done with the long awaited git 2.0 software port. Unfortunately this port took us very long, as we had to do a lot updates on other ports, as well as some new ports. Git and all the needed requirements can be installed with "yum install git". If one doesn't like yum there is the possibility to download the zip package of git and install it from there.
If you are curious in what was added or changed for the git port, please have a look at Unix Ports <trac.netlabs.org/ports/timeline>

We are now switching to Firefox again and we hope to have a fresh beta out very soon.
If you are interested to see the progress on Firefox, please have a look at Firefox for eCS (OS/2) <https://github.com/bitwiseworks/mozilla-os2>

FtpServer 2.0 is open source

Wed, 20140903 - 00:57 -0600

The FtpServer software, formerly distributed as shareware, is now
open-source and freeware, subject to the GPL open-source licence. The
binaries and the sources may be obtained from

www.pmoylan.org/pages/os2/FtpServer.html

or from Hobbes.

(Binaries in one zip file, sources in three other zip files.)

FtpServer is an FTP daemon for OS/2. Although an FTP daemon already
comes supplied with OS/2, this one has more flexible control over what
clients are allowed to do and see. Each user sees a virtual file system
(which can be different for each user) which, through the use of
symbolic links and visibility controls, hides the actual file system
from the user. It is also possible to control which IP addresses are
allowed to connect to the server.

The included tools include a Monitor program that lets the manager see
who is connected.
