Perhaps this query is too early, but is there a "schedule" for producing an Alpha V8.4 hobbyist kit?

Thanks!

I am interested too. I still haven't installed the 8.3 on my virtual alpha and have had the kits for awhile.

hum...

Did anyone get their hands on the 8.4 Field Test?

I have some POSIX code developed on UNIX that has conditional compiled bits that I would like to get rid of...

Also, the 8.4 presentations include some interesting shared memory APIs.

Based on prior updates I'd say it'll be a while. HP puts authorization of new hobbyist media firmly on the back burner.

Does anyone know if the odd behavior on (at least) Alpha graphical consoles (without DECwindows) was fixed in 8.4-Final? I've only used the beta, and there were a few oddities on a Permedia graphics head.

It'll get here when it gets here.

FWIW discussion with the few VMS types I know indicates that most are still on V8.3 anyway - seems V8.4 is a bit buggy comparatively. Now that HP doesn't allow patch access without a paid support contract having a bug-free base is very important to hobbyists.

HPE only makes the most current version of OpenVMS Alpha / IA64 /VAX available to hobbyists. When I had access to the Alliance 1 program it was the same. No public downloads are allowed by HPE.

lation/ For the most part just use VMS 6.1 media instead of 7.3. But why run the older release?

The openvms disks question is frequently answered in the forums, and is not something to ask about in the shout box.
