February 5, 1989


By CBR Staff Writer

Hewlett-Packard Co is preparing the release of a new version of its HP/UX Unix operating system for release during the second half of 1989, according to a report in HP Chronicle-Europe – and it should incoprorate the Hewlett-Packard – Microsoft LAN Manager LM/X, which will enable MS-DOS and OS/2 micros to share HP9000 resources and peripherals with no additional software. HP-UX 7.0 will also begin to converge the technology of the HP Series 300 and 800 operating systems, currently separate as Series 300 HP-UX 6.2, and Series 800 HP-UX 3.0 – especially in the area of system administration. The new release will conform to X/Open’s Portability Guide III specification, and the Open Software Foundation’s Level 0 specification, which will require the addition of an ANSI standard C compiler, PHIGS graphics, Open Systems Interconnection networking, and SQL database management facilities. Release 7.0 will be based on a full implementation of Unix System V.3, with Streams and Transport Layer Interface, and may also include disk mirroring, diskless support (for low end Series 800 Spectrum RISC-based models), and US Department of Defense C2 security certification.
