TCP stack: Roadshow 1.12
Press release: The Roadshow TCP/IP stack for the Amiga has been updated to version 1.12 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 using Roadshow 1.11, upgrading it to version 1.12. Note: if you are still using Roadshow 1.8 you need to upgrade to version 1.11 first before you can upgrade to version 1.12.

The changes in Roadshow 1.12 are as follows:
  1. A buffer overflow bug has been fixed which could occur when querying network interface hardware addresses. This bug could cause the "ShowNetStatus" command to crash.
  2. The ftp command has been reworked, fixing bugs which had been present for years (buffer overflows, etc.).
  3. Overlapping name resolution operations can no longer collide with each other so easily and produce corrupt query data. This problem could occur only very rarely.
  4. New API functions for name resolution have been added, which are common in the Unix world, for which no alternatives had been available before. These enhancements are new for Amiga TCP/IP software in general.
  5. If Roadshow sets up a network interface using the DHCP protocol it can now request that the DHCP server sends its responses directly to Roadshow (unicast) instead of broadcasting them to the local network.
  6. Changing the system clock time (e.g. during daylight saving time transitions) no longer affect Roadshow's internal time keeping.
  7. A new ready-made network configuration file for PCMCIA cards using the "cnet16.device" driver is provided under "Storage/NetInterfaces/CNet16").
  8. The reference documentation has been updated.
More detailed descriptions of the changes can be found in the "ReadMe" file of the Roadshow archive, and the SDK archive. (cg) (Translation: cg)
