I can't find enough free time to put on my team duty, due to professional issues. So, apart some progress made on the userland stack debug platform I should share some day, nothing really new. As you may already know, the current core, interfaces and protocols code (src/add-ons/kernel/network/*) is all messy, due to his BSD heritage, and lack many things: - multithread safety, which is very important under OBOS, but seem to be lost during the code trip from BSD to our CVS. - code cleanup: understandable symbols names, code style, multiple redefinition in public headers when it should be obvioulsy private. Or the reverse. - and, most important, make it run again. Currently, all modules build, but some don't run/load fine, starting with the icmp protocol: ping & traceroute don't works fine: unknown protocol! During the late two months, I try to make it run again, but failed to understand where and why it's broken until now. I guess the ugly code don't help here. So, I switch since to the userland stack platform, rewriting some core module components in a better shape... Kinda of like dropping some older code here, I agree. On the open tasks: - DHCP is open, but may depend on the stack final interface. - GUI preflet is fully open too. - I've no news about NetEndpoint class. Scott, still here? Should someone else take it? -Philippe. -- Fortune Cookie Says: Baruch's Observation: If all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail.
