A beta version of ski v0.9.81 is now available for testing.  Ski is a
relatively fast IA-64 instruction set simulator which is useful both
for application-level and system-level software development.
For more info, see this URL:

Since this is a beta, there may be some rough edges or unexpected
features (aka "bugs").  If you find such things, please report them on
lia64-sim@linux.hpl.hp.com.

Major enhancements include:

 o Full coverage of SDM2.1.  In particular, the 16-byte atomic
   operations are now supported by Ski.

 o System-level simulation is now a lot faster (about twice as fast)
   thanks to some optimization work by Laurent Morichetti.

 o The "cstack" (call-stack) command now finally works, courtesy of
   libunwind.

For more detailed release notes, see:

  http://www.hpl.hp.com/research/linux/ski/release-notes.php#v0.9.81l1

The Ski web site provides binaries for x86 and ia64 free of charge and
also provides a sample Linux kernel, bootloader, and root file-system.

Enjoy,
