Rekall 2.2.0 Beta1

Rekall 2.2.0 Beta1 is now available. Following the current trend of giving open source softwate releases cheesy names, this is the "With More Development" release.

I would like to be able to claim that there are no bugs in this release:) However, I am quite certain that some bugs are there to be found, even if I am not sure of their location. I am confident that users will be able to inspect this release of Rekall for such bugs, and be able to report back on them.

The source tarball can be downloaded from:

Changes in this release are mostly aimed at getting it to build cleanly on current and recent releases. It has been build on:

RH 7.3, 8, 9
MDK 9.0, 9.1, 9.2
SuSE 8.1, 8.2, 9.0

In each case the installation is essentially a "stock" distribution with the necessary development packages installed.

See the file README.FIRST inside the tarball for details; this is also available at, follow

Content->Obtaining and Building->Obtaining and Building.

This also contains the CVS information.

A merry christmas to all our readers, or, if you loathe and detest it as much as I do, a minimally dire one.
