February 03, 2013 by firstname.lastname@example.org
In the second week of April Mensys will release:
* The new updated eComStation demo CD based on eComStation 2.2
* eComStation 2.2 German and English will then be out of beta and
released as a final product.
A beta of the English beta product will follow. The hold up of this
beta public is to make the transfer of the from the IBM USB host
controller drivers to the newly updated drivers. The keyboard and mouse
driver are already finished. There is currently still being worked on
the USB host controller (these communicate with the USB controller
chips in your computer).
In eComStation 2.2 ACPI has been switched on by default when
eComStation is not installed in a virtualmachine such as Virtualbox or
Virtual PC. This will enable eComStation to boot on modern hardware with a much
higher degree of success. This will also resolve the TRAPS/hangs on
Also in eCS 2.2 the Panorama graphics driver has been upgraded to
provide much better performance on modern hardware.
A lot of drivers such as IBMKBD.SYS, DANIS506.ADD, AMOUSE.SYS and
UNIAUD have been updated to work better with ACPI. Some updates have
been to fix suspend/resume issue's.
The current eComStation 2.2 beta is basicly complete and being tested
to work out the last installer issue's.
YUM/RPM is included but can be installed as an optional package. Its
CUPS has also been integrated in eCS to have more up to date printer
support on eComStation.
