============
   6 : 
NOTE --
   7 : 
	This would have been the third release of 2.10BSD; but since
   8 : 
	the filesystem has changed and a coldstart is required
   9 : 
	this release was instead called: 2.11BSD
  10 : 
  11 : 
	Work on this release has been on going since the initial
  12 : 
	release of 2.10.1BSD in January 1989.  This release, 
  13 : 
	is in celebration of the 20th anniversary of the PDP-11.
  14 : 
	
  15 : 
	This release incorporates all fixes and changes posted
  16 : 
	to the group comp.bugs.2bsd on the newsnet since 2.10.1BSD
  17 : 
	was released.
  18 : 
  19 : 
	Present in this release are several more missing pieces
  20 : 
	from the 4.3BSD distribution:
  21 : 
  22 : 
		1) the kernel logger (/dev/klog)
  23 : 
  24 : 
		2) the namei cache
  25 : 
  26 : 
		3) readv(2)/writev(2) as system calls rather than 
  27 : 
		   emulation/compatibility routines
  28 : 
  29 : 
		4) the shadow password implementation released for 4.3BSD
  30 : 
  31 : 
		5) a TMSCP (TK50/TU81) driver with standalone support 
  32 : 
		   (bootblock and standalone driver)
  33 : 
  34 : 
		6) a couple more network drivers have ported or made to
  35 : 
		   work:  if_vv and if_acc
  36 : 
  37 : 
		7) the portable ascii archive file format (ar(1), ar(5)) has 
  38 : 
		   been implemented.
  39 : 
  40 : 
		8) last, but most importantly, long filenames!  
  41 : 
		
  42 : 
		   This last is the reason a coldstart kit is necessary.  The 
  43 : 
		   on-disc directory structure has been ported from 4.3BSD 
  44 : 
		   (along with the utilities that know about on-disc
  45 : 
		   directories via the raw filesystem: fsck, ncheck, icheck, 
  46 : 
		   dcheck, etc.) and is not compatible with previous versions
  47 : 
		   of UNIX for the PDP-11.  A limited amount of backward
  48 : 
		   compatibility is present in a version of dump(8) which
  49 : 
		   can read old filesystems.  restor(8) automagically converts
  50 : 
		   old dump tapes to the new format on input.
  51 : 
  52 : 
		   MAXNAMLEN is now 63 instead of 14.  It is possible the
  53 : 
		   limit could be higher, but with MAXPATHLEN at 256 a
  54 : 
		   MAXNAMLEN of 63 was judged sufficient.
  55 : 
  56 : 
	MANY other fixes and changes have also been made, see the
  57 : 
	"Changes To The System" document which describes the changes
  58 : 
	made to both the kernel and the application programs.
