Subject[ANNOUNCE] ltp-20020910 released
The Linux Test Project test suite LTP-20020910.tgz has been released.
Visit our website ( <> ) to download the latest
version of the testsuite, and for information on test results on
release candidates & stable releases of the kernel. There is also a list
of test cases that are expected to fail, please find the list at

The highlights of this release are:

- New "utils" section created and added to the CVS tree. This repository
will hold various utilities, including kernel coverage analysis tools
and STAX execution scripts.

- LTP website has been modified to contain detailed information about
kernel code coverage, including details on lcov (LTP's GCOV extension)
and documentation on how to use lcov for generating coverage

- New test driver created that runs over the STAf eXecution (STAX) service
of the Software Test Automation Framework (STAF)
<>. The driver is available to download from
the "Utilities" category of the Files section, as well as the "utils"
section of the CVS tree.

- Documentation on configuration and use of the new STAX LTP driver, with
screenshots, posted on LTP website.

We encourage the community to post results, patches, or new tests on our
mailing list, and to use the CVS bug tracking facility to report problems
you might encounter. More details available at our web-site.
