Subject: [Announce] Checkpoint-restore tool v0.7
Date: Tuesday 3rd September 2013 12:05:06 UTC (over 3 years ago)
Hi, all! The checkpoint-restore tool v0.7 release is ready and out, the changelog is at http://criu.org/Download/criu/0.7 the sources are at http://download.openvz.org/criu/criu-0.7.tar.bz2 The main news about the release is that the ptrace extension to get/set sigmask on processes and the memory changes tracker (a.k.a. soft-dirty thing) are merged into Linux-3.11. With this done, we finally have everything, that is really critical for C/R, and thus the project is no longer *that* kernel-dependent. That said, from now on we shall concentrate on improving the tool performance and stability, rather than adorning the kernel :) Also, we no longer have to keep the CRIU releases in sync with the kernel releases, so the next one we be done as soon as it's ready, not when the Linux-3.12 is out. Thanks everyone who helped with the v0.7, especially with the soft-dirty stuff! Have fun!
