We have worked intensively on our development infrastructure in the last few weeks.
With our virtual machines we moved away from VMware ESXi and VMware Workstation and towards [ Proxmox VE ] (based on QEMU/KVM). We have the impression that this makes handling and installing updates more efficient. At the same time, Proxmox VE copes much better with USB for VM guests with Linux. We ave finally switched off our oldest VM server (Dell PowerEdge), some Intel NUCs and Apple Minis now form our virtualization cluster.
As an additional file version management, we are now using [ GitLab ] locally in our network. This allows our developers to easily access the central master repository with our Sourec code. Because of the distribution of
the individual source code files to the various protocol stacks, derived products and customer-specific projects, we will stick to our own file version management as the central repository.
If you have any questions about our development infrastructure, please e-mail us: e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
New with this COMPROTware:Testtool release:
The first version of the release series COMPROTware:Testtool 2.20 for the year 2020 is now available.
Standing out with CPTT 2.20.1: Additionally to Oracle Java 8, 32 bit, [ AdoptOpenJDK 8, 32 Bit ] can be used as Java runtime environment. After Oracle Java is only available in a paid version, with [ AdoptOpenJDK ] an open and cost-free Java environment can still be used.
In COMPROTware:Testtool 2.19.6 protocol communication can now be imported from another source: With support of ABB Power Grids in Mannheim, DE we implemented the import of ABB MicroSCADA/COM600 logging-files. Textfiles containing protocol logging, created with the communication monitoring/debugging interface of ABB MicroSCADA/COM600, can now be imported into CPTT. All protocols implementd in CPTT are supported.
COMPROTware:Testtool 2.19.4 news:
Many customers use COMPROTware:Testtool to ensure the availability and stability of their grid. In the 2010s to achieve this, it is necessary to carry out day- or
week-long protocol monitoring or simulations.
We continued to work on this goal in the current release: When used for days or weeks a very large amounts of data is collected. In order to compensate this, we worked on our MLG file format and now compress the stored Frames. The file sizes were more than halved depending on the protocol, thus speeding up file reading.
With COMPROTware:Testtool 2.19.1, we have successfully completed some open tasks:
"WibuKey Runtime 32/64 Bit" can be downloaded from [ WibuKey Runtime ] (alternatively: [ WIBU-User Software ] ).
Wibu-Systems has provided the following user information: WibuKey-User-Information-20181219a.pdf (500K)

For COMPROTware:Testtool 2.18.4, we worked hard on the general Message processing speed, resulting in noticeable improvements for every user:
COMPROTware:Testtool 2.18.3 is one more release with a lot of changes in the core but with only a few visible.
For this release the news are:
With COMPROTware:Testtool 2.18.2, little has been done on the outside, but we worked intensively on the core. Everything together creates the necessary basis for providing important developments in the next releases.
COMPROTware:Testtool 2.18.1 is the first release, which follows our new release numbering scheme.
For this release the news are:
