UPDATE: (Thur, Feb 6, 2014) I'd like to thank everyone for being patient. As mentioned earlier, OpenVMS.org is being ported to a new content management system. Due to the enormous amount of data, 13 years worth in the database, it's taking longer than anticipated. We're hoping the new site will be up and running within the next couple of weeks. Bare with us, it's been a colossal task! -Ken Farmer
C-Kermit 9.0 Beta Test
Posted by Ian on Thursday June 23 2011 @ 04:13AM EDT
The latest version of the legendary file transfer utility, C-Kermit, is in beta test. Testing on more OpenVMS versions is requested.
So far C-Kermit 9.0 beta has only been tested on OpenVMS Alpha 6.1 and 8.3.
The major goals of this release are
(a) compatibility with newer OS releases and hardware;
(b) support for large files and 64-bit integers on as many platforms as possible;
(c) stability; and
(d) a great many VMS-specific improvements.
Other new features are listed on the web site. Perhaps the biggest change of all is a new license. Beginning in Beta.01 C-Kermit has the Open Source Revised 3-Clause BSD License, as will subsequent Beta tests and the final C-Kermit 9.0 and later releases.
