Hi

New release 0.0.45 at
ftp.nvg.ntnu.no:/pub/vms/freevms (freevms-0_0_45.tgz and linker-0_0_45)

news:
VMS-ish images (has to be suffixed .exe for now). Need special linker, which
        can only make statically linked images.
Working working sets. (But primitive/partial).
DCL has now also got
        simple scripting
        FreeVMS images run with .exe - suffix files.
        stop, goto, exit, logout
        set prompt/process/working_set
        show working_set
        a better show system
System services $adjwsl and $imgact

Note (for CONFIG_VMS):
There is some serious corruption someplace.
Booting with init=/vms$common/sysexe/dcl on bochs (not 386) now works.
Bochs/386 and uml seem to have different problems (previous corruption?).
Both seem to have problems with fork.
CONFIG_VMS is very experimental, so do not expect it to stay up long
after booting (no more advanced boot than init=/bin/sh).
The write suppport may be very destructive.

Short-term I/O plans (still):
Get more/better write-support in, and move to WCBs etc.
At least look at whatever "device" uml uses and NE2000.
After some time a lot of driver support might be cut/broke (the most).

Regards,
Roar Thronśs
