Generic 0.3.15 Changes
- Headers have been cleaned up to reduce the number of dependencies dragged in by code.
- Annotations for use with Visual Studio's static analyzer have been added to many modules.
- Improvements to the various SDKs to increase compatibility and add new new data structures and interfaces for developing drivers, applications, and native applications.
- A variety of bugs found by Visual Studio 2012's static code analyzer was fixed.
- The project has switched over entirely to using CMake and rbuild support has been dropped. Continued work has been done to improve the build process.
- Removable media is now selectable as an installation target.
- Unpartitioned space calculation now works if the first partition starts below the disk's track size.
- ATL is now registered before anything else.
- The DEVICEMAP\VIDEO key is now created with a proper length by taking into account the NULL terminator, an issue originally exposed in ARWINSS.
A new session manager subsystem has been implemented that will be used in conjunction with an upcoming rewrite of the Console/Server Runtime Subsystem. Currently it still works with the old CSRSS.
- A new header that precisely documents the packet structure and protocols used for communication between SMSS and CSRSS has been added. The definitions match NT5.2.
- An error in VfatCreateFile that caused access denied to always be returned when opening a volume has been fixed.
- PCI device names are no longer truncated in debug output.
- IrqlToSoftVector() is now implemented and used in HalRequestSoftwareInterrupt, ensuring the correct interrupt is triggered on AMD64.
- The IRQL in HalpAllocateSystemInterrupt is now correctly set to the lowest vector.
- Interlocked operations are now used for reference counting device objects.
- KeUpdateSystemTime has been refactored, making it 64bit portable and resolving potential concurrency issues.
- IntReadConsoleOutputCharacter has been fixed to copy the correct number of characters.
- ReadProcessMemory/WriteProcessMemory no longer attempt to write to an argument that could potentially be a NULL pointer.
- WriteProcessMemory now returns STATUS_ACCESS_VIOLATION instead of just BOOL due to third party code relying on this behavior.
- InitCommandLines has been rewritten.
- GetProcessAffinityMask now uses BaseStaticServerData from CSRSS instead of querying for system information each time.
- GetProcessShutdownParameters/SetProcessShutdownParameters now correctly use the LPC status code from CSRSS instead of the LPC API status code.
- GetProcessWorkingSetSizeEx/SetProcessWorkingSetSizeEx has been implemented and is now used by GetProcessWorkingSetSize/SetProcessWorkingSetSize.
- GetExitCodeProcess now checks for VDM processes to get the appropriate exit code.
- GetStartupInfoA is now thread safe and no longer assumes all ANSI to Unicode conversions will succeed.
- GetStartupInfoW now correctly supplies ShellInfo data and crashes if given a NULL input.
- ExitProcess now uses SEH and the PEB lock.
- TerminateProcess now correctly sets the ERROR_INVALID_HANDLE error code.
- FatalAppExitA no longer always assumes success.
- FatalAppExitW now raises a hard error.
- FatalExit now displays a debugger input interface on checked build just like Windows.
- SetPriorityClass now tries to acquire the real time privilege as needed and handles failures to do so.
- GetProcessVersion has been rewritten.
- lpfnGlobalRegisterWaitForInputIdle has been renamed to UserWaitForInputIdleRoutine.
NETSHELL has been converted into C++ to improve readability.
- RtlSetCurrentDirectory_U is now implemented, also fixing reference counting in RtlpDosPathNameToRelativeNtPathName_Ustr.
- RtlSetThreadIsCritical has been implemented.
- NT compatible SmConnectToSm and SmExecPgm functions have been implemented.
uxtheme has now been forked from Wine and is solely maintained by this project.
- Loading of MENUEX resources has been fixed.
- Invalid AQ_WIN16 comparisons fix was imported from Wine.
- Log files opened via the event log service are should only be closed when its owning service has stopped.
- Attempting to open a non-existent backup log file now fails while attempting to open an existing backup log file will only allow for reads.
- A wrong buffer size calculation that could cause memory corruption was fixed.
