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 http://www.rekallrevealed.org,

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.
