AT&T SET WITH UNIX SYSTEM V VMEBUS RELEASE FOR OWN USE

By CBR Staff Writer

AT&T is internally testing a 3.1 release of Unix System V that at present is dedicated specifically to its own VMEbus-based single board computers built around WE 32000 family microprocessors, says Computer Systems News. Key feature of the new release is that it supports the Streams networking facility with media-independence, so that where Streams under V 3.0 can be used only over the Starlan local area network with twisted pair, 3.1 can be used with the TCP/IP protocol or with Ethernet, and over any type of cabling system, facilities that are not available for licencees of System V 3.0. The new release on the single board computers is expected in the second quarter.
