PicLan Version 184.108.40.206 is now available
September 6, 1996
PicLan version 220.127.116.11 client is currently being released. This is for
all platforms. This document discusses the elements that this release addresses.
This release is considered a minor upgrade.
The following new feature have been added to version 18.104.22.168:
A new version of the PL-DEV TSR is included. This is a "lite" version of
PL-DEV that is useful for Windows 3.1 installations that are short of memory.
This version of PL-DEV does not include any support for TSR based printing
(PL-PRN and PL-SPRN functions). It also reduces the number of inbound network
buffers allocated to the IPX driver. This may cause lost network packets
if more than 2 or 3 client programs are simultaniously communicating with
Pick host systems.
If you need TSR printer support, you cannot use this new version. If
you are running multi-process high-bandwidth applications such as a DSG,
you should not use this new version of PL-DEV. If you are running interactive
terminal emulation, then this version should work well.
The DRV_MAIN portion of PL-DEV2.EXE is about 10K smaller than in PL-DEV.EXE.
The DRV_IPX portion of PL-DEV2.EXE is about 1K smaller.
No internal code changes
The following bugs are fixed in version 22.214.171.124:
Errors in the 126.96.36.199 install functions have been fixed. Corrupted install
files are also fixed.
PL-TERM Memory Problems
PL-TERM had a bug introduced in 188.8.131.52 which would cause it to run out
of near memory when more than one session was opened. This has been fixed
