VSI OpenVMS V9.0-G Released

VSI has made available OpenVMS V9.0-G for x86. This is the first x86 release of the year, and seventh overall, and it’s another good one with more functionality, VMware support, and a number of improvements. VSI also added five additional EAK testers (approaching 50 in all) and there may be a few more in the coming days.

V9.0-G introduces the following for OpenVMS on x86:

  • OpenVMS for x86 can now be run as a VMware guest on ESXi, Fusion, and Workstation Player
  • Process dump support (with some restrictions)
  • Traceback improvements
  • Reserved Memory support
  • System Service Intercept (SSI) support
  • DECset kit with the CMS, DTM, and ENVMGR tools (Note – this is provided in a PCSI kit instead of VMSINSTALL)
  • Kerberos
  • Updated Linker and ANALYZE cross tools
  • BOOTMGR updates
  • DECthreads updates
  • Cross Tools Updates
