== BACKUP ==

As always, the following applies:


** Disk Resizer GUI **

This beta has a custom DFSee engine that enables reliable RESIZING of
FAT32 and NTFS filesystems to allow shrinking an existing Windows
installation to make room for eComStation on the same system.

The GUI to this tool has been updated and is now using a graphical
interface. To invoke it, please select 'Paritition Resizing Tool' from
the Installation Volume Manager which can be called during installation.

** GenMac support **

This package provides generic driver support for several network
interface cards under OS/2 and eComStation. Moreover, Genmac is enabled
to support WPA encryption with the Wireless LAN Monitor 3.x or better.

Genmac and the Wireless LAN monitor will be installed when the
appropriate hardware is detected by the installer. If it is not
detected, you can manually select the driver in the network installation

** Bootable JFS **

This release of eComStation contains the option to install the operating
system on a JFS volume. The advantage of doing this is that the amount
of diskcache is only limited by system memory (typically 10% of
available memory is assigned) This increased cache size gives a huge
gain in overall system performance.

To install onto a Bootable JFS volume, you will have to select 'JFS' as
filesystem type in the 'Format Volume' page of the installer.

** ACPI 2.22 **

ACPI support has been updated to the latest available version (2.22)
which results in varying successrate. For example, AMD Opteron multicore
CPU is now reported to be supported.

Installation of ACPI has been improved by the use of the ACPI Wizard,
which tries to determine system configuration and set parameters
accordingly. You can manually change them of course.
It will be run after regular installation has completed.

** multicore CPU support **

This beta supports the installation of eComStation on a MultiCore CPU
computer. This includes Intel Core Duo, Core2 Duo and AMD 64 X2.
To enable it, you can do so in the ACPI Wizard that is launched from the
Post Installation tasks at the end of the installation. Alternatively
you can start the ACPI Wizard at any time from the install/remove folder
in the Local System folder on the desktop.

** eComStation Virtual File System (Samba client support) **

Samba is a SMB/CIFS protocols file and print sharing server/client set
originally made for UNIX world to cooperate with corresponding Windows
and OS/2 servers or clients. eComStation has a native implementation of
SMB/CIFS server/client set - IBM LAN Manager and IBM Peer. These
products have not been recently updated and may have some compatibility
issues with modern Windows SMB/CIFS implementations.

Serenity Systems International has reached an agreement with Blueprint
Software Works for the inclusion of the 'eComStation Virtual File
System' driver which provides support for Samba Client. Currently a GUI
to configure it is lacking, but an example of how to mount a Samba
resource is available.


To tell us your findings, please create a report at:

You are also welcome to join the TestTeam if you want to discuss this
beta and future developments. See
for more details.


Please note that although some subscriptions have expired by now, you
are not required to purchase a renewal to obtain the GA version of
eComStation 2.0.
