3 Changes since xosview-1.9.0
5 - Fix a bug where battery meter was not redrawn
7 Changes since xosview-1.8.3
9 - Modify linux serialmeter startup to allow for a port number instead of
10 True/False. Patch provided by Horst Wente.
12 - netIface support for NetBSD. Patch from Bernd Ernesti.
14 - Move repository to Git
16 - Merged patches from Debian distribution
18 - Several bugfixes
20 - Improvements to defaults
22 Changes since xosview-1.8.2
23 - NFSDStats ans NFSStats Graph, Decay and UsedMode are now configurable
25 - SunOS updates, compiles now cleanly with gcc 3.3.2
27 - Fix for linux intmeter for interrupts > 16 thanks to John Adams
29 - Small patch from Gunnar Wolf for lmstemp (change int to double)
31 - Fix battery meter for case where lack of APM report -1%. Thanks
32 to Gunnar Wolf.
34 - Allow netmeter to specify, via the Xresource xosview*netIface,
35 which network interface it will monitor. Patch thanks to Gunnar Wolf.
37 - Add patch for additional cpu fields in linux for 2.6 kernel. Patch thanks
38 to Hendrik Fehr.
40 - Add various pathes from the NetBSD project. Pathes contributed by Roland
43 - Fix bug 854215 (-v and --version still needed to connect to X server)
45 Changes since xosview-1.8.1
46 - Applied sourceforge patch 927112 from Russell Reed which fixes
47 the swapmeter when USESYSCALLS is defined.
49 - Applied sourceforge patch 959433 which adds acpi support to
50 the linux battery meter.
52 - Applied a patch similar to the sourceforge patch 586184 submitted
53 by Mark Guertin.
55 - Linux diskmeter now uses vmstat and thus works with 2.6.
56 But the units problem (block size) probably still remains.
58 - Linux pagemeter should now work with 2.6 kernels
60 - Merge in the fedora-2 nfs patch.
62 - Merge in the fedora-2 strip patch.
64 - Merge in the fedora-2 proc patch.
66 - Merge in the fedora-2 s390 patch.
68 - Merge in the fedora-2 non-i386 patch.
70 - Merge in the fedora-2 linux-2.6 kernel (related) patch.
72 - Add an autogen.sh script. This script runs autoconf to create
73 the configure script.
75 Changes since xosview-1.8.0
77 - Update linux port to build with gcc 3.2 and 3.3 (should still work
78 with 2.95.
80 - Add -Wno-deprecated for gcc builds. This avoids warnings about
81 the new C++ header files. This should be fixed for the next release.
83 - Change MAX_PROC_LENGTH in linux/cpumeter to 4096 to avoid
84 an infinite loop with redhat 7.3
86 Changes since xosview-1.7.3
88 - Add Mike Butler's patch which fixes an infinite loop in
89 the linux netmeter when a pcmcia card is ejected.
91 - Add Leopold Toetsch's linux lmstemp meter.
93 - Linux port (and maybe others) now works with gcc-3.0.4
95 - added IRIX 6.5 support
97 - Updated NetBSD support, based on patches from Bernd Ernesti, to
98 use new CPU meter sysctl interface.
100 Changes since xosview-1.7.2
102 - IRQ rate meter for BSDs added.
104 - FreeBSD 4.* fixes by David O'Brien
106 Changes since xosview-1.7.1
108 - Linux now has a RAID meter. See README.linux for how to set it up.
110 BSDI support, courtesy of Tomer Klainer.
111 Fixed memstat module for linux-2.2
113 Changes from Thomas Waldmann (ThomasWaldmann@gmx.de)
114 - Fixed cosmetical bug in xosview:
115 if you tried to make the xosview window height too small, it looked quite
116 strange (because the height value for the meters got negative)
118 - Fixed cosmetical bug in disk meter:
119 at first call, it displayed negative values, overwriting the "DISK" label
121 - Cosmetical fix:
122 The titles were at x=0 - directly at the window border.
123 Fixed it to show 1 pixel background between window border and title texts.
124 Also moved "used" displays 2 pixels to the right, so that there is also 1
125 pixel between the titles and the used display texts.
127 - Cosmetical fix: Xdefaults and Xdefaults.stipple file now looks nicer.
129 - Cosmetical fix: load meter sometimes went beyond the right border (I think
130 when showing values >>20). Changed load meter scaling to be really dynamic
131 (no upper bound for total, but total doesn't become less than 1.0).
132 Changed "used" display to show load relative to 1.0 (so it now just shows
133 the load value ;-).
135 - New feature: load meter now has not only a warning color (and threshold),
136 but also a (higher) critical color (and threshold).
138 - Added info to disk meter problem documentation (see source):
139 on my system, it showed only the half of the correct values, factor
140 for SW-RAID5 md devices seems to be 2048 (md0), while standard ext2fs
141 factor is 1024 on my system, too (hda).
143 So there is a problem. Solution ???
145 - Fixed bitmeter to calculate graphics coordinates like fieldmeter
147 - MemMeter showed strange values when starting vmware (and having memstat
148 module loaded): "used" memory got negative !! Looking at the values, I had
149 the impression that "shared" memory is also counted as cache memory.
150 I hopefully fixed that by subtracting shared from cache - looks better now.
152 Changes since xosview-1.7.0
153 Optimised scrolling graph to use XCopyArea.
154 Fixes to linux diskmeter.
155 Fixed all (I hope) linux code which parsed /proc/stat with too
156 small a buffer.
158 Changes since xosview-1.6.2
159 Added a linux diskmeter which *should* be similar to the BSD version
160 but which also differentiates between reading and writing. Linux
161 looks like it actually has more stats (per disk input/output) so
162 this could be expanded upon.
163 Better *BSD support: OpenBSD intmeter, FreeBSD diskmeter,
164 NetBSD battery meter.
165 Some Solaris support.
167 Changes since xosview-1.6.1
168 Check for and set -D__SMP__ if the linux memstat module is built on a
169 SMP system.
170 New option to omit the meter captions (+-captions) added by
171 Christian 'Dr. Disk' Hechelmann <email@example.com>
172 New graphing meter display mode added.
173 Fixes to work with linux/alpha.
174 BSD directories merged -- now a single bsd subdir shared by
175 NetBSD, FreeBSD, and OpenBSD.
177 Changes since xosview-1.6.0:
178 Linux netmeter for kernels 1.1 and above no longer hangs after
179 the packet count gets too high.
180 Interrupt meter now supports priority settings under *BSD and Linux.
181 Better UVM detection for *BSD.
182 Code cleanup/removal of unneeded #include's for *BSD.
184 Changes since xosview-1.5.1, in no particular order:
186 Linux netmeter does not need IPACCOUNTING for 1.1 kernels.
188 Much better support for FreeBSD, thanks to Tom Pavel!
190 Check for invalid meter priority of 0 added.
192 NetBSD now supports the interrupt meter.
194 Finally found the missing 'else' that was causing the net meter
195 in particular to occasionally overwrite the label.
197 Found 32-bit-wrap case that was also causing the netmeter grief.
199 Bitmeter class drawing routine tweaked, usedLabel color changed
200 to be the same as the `on' color for the bits.
202 Changes since xosview-1.5.0, in no particular order:
204 On Linux the cpu meters will now show a seperate meter per cpu if
205 Jerome Forissier's kernel patch has been applied.
207 Linux should now work out of the box with GNU libc (untested).
209 The autoscale labels now work under Linux and HPUX.
211 Early support for FreeBSD: load, cpu, mem, and page meters.
213 Now compiles with either BSD or GNU make (BSD make can not handle
214 auto-depend with the current Makefile structure).
216 Man page source code now uses lots of macros to make modifications easier.
218 Changes since xosview-1.4.*, in no particular order:
220 Linux memory and swap meters now will work with linux 2.0 or 2.1
221 They will no longer work for pre 2.0 kernels.
223 All meters can now be disabled individually.
225 The overloaded 'network' resource has been deprecated, and replaced by
226 'net' to enable/disable the NetMeter, and 'netBandwidth', which sets the
227 initial maximum value for the meter.
229 Initial support for stipple masks has been added, primarily for users
230 stuck with 1-bit monitors/display cards. Try setting enableStipple
231 true. Please give us feedback on this, if you use it. It needs
232 some more work.
234 Initial support for the -name option for specifying an X resource
235 `instance name' other than the default of `xosview'. With the
236 following .Xdefaults file:
237 xosview*background: blue
238 xosviewFoo*background: black
239 the command 'xosview' will have a blue background, and the command
240 'xosview -name xosviewFoo' will have a black background, but all
241 other resources will be from the default xosview resources.
243 New meters:
244 PageMeter for Linux
245 BatteryMeter for Linux
246 DiskMeter for NetBSD
248 Improved drawing.
250 Improved usedLabels -- now the autoscale format can be used to
251 automatically print a value in K, M, or G, as appropriate. (Before,
252 most displays showed percent use, instead of absolute values.)
