### Final WS2.2 Binary Release

Hi,

After more reports from some users, I have implemented 6 new functions
which were in use by many popular programs. Although much of the DLL is
still unimplemented, the remaining calls are mostly for highly advanced
behaviour which would be seen in either spyware of winsock firewalls, or
for deprecated 16-bit support or highly unusual APIs. Since those aren't
a priority right now and I haven't been able to find any application
using them right now, I've chosen this version to be the "code freeze"
version, which will be committed later. With the new functions (thanks
to Jirka and David for finding the apps), Opera now works, as well as
SmartFTP and probably a lot more applications. Here is the updated

Firefox, Opera, Filezilla, Thunderbird, IE 6, OE 6, Azureus, Microsoft
Terminal Services Client, Skype, Google Talk, World of Warcraft, MIRC,
XChat, MSN Messenger, SmartFTP.

This list is satisfactory to me, as it includes almost all the biggest
network applications out there. I am now looking for any final
showstoppers before focusing on mswsock.dll, so I've posted this mail on
the General Mailing List as well, hoping to get more testers.

Thanks for testing!

Best regards,
Alex Ionescu

PS. You may notice that the binary is larger then the Microsoft DLL,
even though it is less functional. This is because it is a debug

I got a GF 6600 (not a 6000) and my driver is ForceWare 71.25.  It is
realy wired that it works on
some nVidea cards and on others not.

Hi,

I have subscribed Google Alerts with the keyword ReactOS. Here is what I
got for the 0.2.8 release.

Golem.de - Germany - http://www.golem.de/0510/41322.html
Der Standard - Wien,Austria - http://derstandard.at/?id=2226945

The frist two once are german and last one is a download site. But I
think anyway that it would be a good
idea to sucripe the ros-dev or general mailing list at Google alerts.

### patch for test/review

Hi,

I've changed rbuild a little bit, that it can run on msys (on windows).
The major changes are:
- The separator (slash or back slash), exepostfix and exeprefix are
initialized from environment variables.
- The separators in the path for the system command are always converted
for the host system.
- Our own build utilities must convert paths itself (bin2res).
It exist some problems with absolute paths on msys, because msys uses
'/c/foo/bar' and windows 'c:\foo\bar' or 'c:/foo/bar'.

I've tested the patch on msys and on windows. I cannot test the patch on
linux.

Currently, msys is the only way to use all cpus or cores for the build
process on windows.

- Hartmut

We've been saying this for the past 12 months now, but as work in networking has stepped up a gear, it looks as though 0.3.0 is imminent, and could be ready within the next few months.

In light of this, I've been though the 0.3.0 roadmap and updated it to what appears to be peoples current perception of requirements. http://www.reactos.org/wiki/index.php/0.3.x/0.3.0

It would be really great if we could pull out all the stops and get this release out for Christmas.

mingw32-make can use multiple cpus or cores, if sh.exe is found on the
path. Sh.exe (from msys) doesn't understand back slashes within paths.
That is the reason why I try to use msys.
