Critical Fixes | Improvements | Unsupported Features | Known Bugs


Software

Release 7.0.1 Software

Critical Fixes

• Fixed bug when using --prefix option with configure


Improvements

• Binary rewriter support for dynamically linked binaries on PowerPC/32 and BlueGene/P platforms
• Binary rewriter support for statically linked binaries on x86 and x86_64 platforms
• Improvements to parsing speed
• Reductions in memory usage
• Assorted bug fixes


Unsupported Features

• Solaris and IA64 is no longer supported
• BPatch_thread functions are deprecated
• Save-the-world is no longer supported; this is long obsoleted by the binary rewriter functionality


Known Bugs

• x86-64 CPUs that do not support the lahf and sahf instructions will not be able to run Dyninst-generated instrumentation on 64-bit mutatees. These CPUs will still be able to instrument 32-bit mutatees. All x86-64 chips released post-2005 support these instructions; AMD CPUs prior to revision D and Intel CPUs prior to Pentium 4 G1 do not.
