strchan 0.9.2.1 Released
Description: OpenSS7 Old News.
Approved for Immediate Release
Jan 8, 2007
(Edmonton, Alberta -- Jan 8, 2007) OpenSS7 today announced Release 0.9.2.1 of the STREAMS Channels (CHAN) strchan package. The OpenSS7 STREAMS Channels package provides STREAMS modules and drivers, libraries, programs, init scripts, and daemons that implement the OpenSS7 STREAMS isochronous channels for the purpose of implementing data transmission links, or for carrying voice or other media, such as channelization of T1 carrier facilities, or ATM AAL3. This package also includes pseudo-isochronous channels such as those provided by RTP.
Included are hardware device drivers and pseudo-device drivers that provide implementations of specific channels. A pseudo-device driver is planned to link into the Linux OSS (Open Sound System) and ALS (Advanced Linux Sound). Specific E1/T1 cards such as the V401P are supported by this package.
This package also supports data channel protocols for data communication over isochronous channels such as HDLC and SS7 DAEDR/DAEDT/AERM/SUERM. Upper layer link protocols, such as LAPB, LAPF, LAPM and LLC are supported by separate packages. These modules are provided here because they work directly over an isochronous channel and are therefore designed to work with them. These data links provide support for the OpenSS7 STREAMS ISO/OSI as well as the OpenSS7 STREAMS ISDN Stacks and OpenSS7 STREAMS SS7 Stack packages.
This is the first separate release from The OpenSS7 Project of the OpenSS7 STREAMS Channels package. The package provides components that were previously part of the `strss7' package. This package contains all the necessary manual pages and other documentation. The package is packaged as an OpenSS7 style autoconf tarball.
This is the initial pre-alpha release for Linux Fast-STREAMS and is an optional part of the OpenSS7 Master Package (as of openss7-0.9.2.D).
This release is the initial public release.
This package is currently incomplete. It is being released as a reference point for the community. If you are interested in completion of this package, contact email@example.com.
The release provides the following enhancements and fixes:
As with other OpenSS7 releases, this release configures, compiles, installs and builds RPMs and DEBs for a wide range of Linux 2.4 and 2.6 RPM- and DPKG-based distributions, and can be used on production kernels without patching or recompiling the kernel.
This package is publicly released under the GNU Public License Version 2. The release is available as an autoconf tarball, SRPM, DSC, and set of binary RPMs and DEBs. See the downloads page for the autoconf tarballs, SRPMs and DSCs. See the strchan package page for tarballs, SRPMs, DSCs, and binary RPMs and DEBs.
