This is to announce the beta test cycle for pcvt 3.20.
Pcvt is a video/keyboard driver for i386-based NetBSD (0.9, -current),
for FreeBSD (1.0, 1.1R, 18.104.22.168R) and for 386BSD 0.1 + pk 0.2.4 (obsolete).
Pcvt has almost full VT220 compatibility, supports national keyboard remapping,
24/25/28/40/50 lines and 80/132 columns and a configurable number of virtual
screens for character terminal and X11 sessions. It comes with a complete set
of fonts, utilities and documentation for easy integration into the above
What i really like to have before a final release is support for NetBSD 1.0
and FreeBSD 2.0.
New in this release is
- code to make scrolling REALLY fast by using hardware (CRTC)
- a keyboard FIFO for no longer disturbing serial ports while
switching virtual screens
- many bugfixes and speedups
