python-ptrace / ChangeLog


python-ptrace 0.6.6

 * Fix os_tools.RUNNING_LINUX for Python 2.x compiled on Linux kernel 3.x

python-ptrace 0.6.5 (2013-06-06)

 * syscall: fix parsing socketcall on Linux x86
 * syscall: fix protoype of socket()

python-ptrace 0.6.4 (2012-02-26)

 * Convert all classes to new-style classes, patch written by teythoon
 * Fix compilation on Apple, patch written by Anthony Gelibert
 * Support GNU/kFreeBSD, patch written by Jakub Wilk
 * Support sockaddr_in6 (IPv6 address)

python-ptrace 0.6.3 (2011-02-16)

 * Support distrom3
 * Support Python 3
 * Rename strace.py option --socketcall to --socket, and fix this option for
   FreeBSD and Linux/64 bits
 * Add MANIFEST.in: include all files in source distribution (tests, cptrace
   module, ...)

python-ptrace 0.6.2 (2009-11-09)

 * Fix 64 bits sub registers (set mask for eax, ebx, ecx, edx)

python-ptrace 0.6.1 (2009-11-07)

 * Create follow, showfollow, resetfollow, xray commands in gdb.py. Patch
   written by Dimitris Glynos
 * Project website moved to http://bitbucket.org/haypo/python-ptrace/
 * Replace types (u)intXX_t by c_(u)intXX
 * Create MemoryMapping.search() method and MemoryMapping now keeps a weak
   reference to the process

python-ptrace 0.6 (2009-02-13)

User visible changes:

 * python-ptrace now depends on Python 2.5
 * Invalid memory access: add fault address in the name
 * Update Python 3.0 conversion patch
 * Create -i (--show-ip) option to strace.py: show instruction pointer
 * Add a new example (itrace.py) written by Mark Seaborn and based
   on strace.py

API changes:

 * PtraceSyscall: store the instruction pointer at syscall enter (if the
   option instr_pointer=True, disabled by default)
 * Remove PROC_DIRNAME and procFilename() from ptrace.linux_proc


 * Fix locateProgram() for relative path
 * Fix interpretation of memory fault on MOSVW instruction (source is ESI and
   destination is EDI, and not the inverse!)

python-ptrace 0.5 (2008-09-13)

Visible changes:

 * Write an example (the most simple debugger) and begin to document the code
 * gdb.py: create "dbginfo" command
 * Parse socket syscalls on FreeBSD
 * On invalid memory access (SIGSEGV), eval the dereference expression to get
   the fault address on OS without siginfo (eg. FreeBSD)
 * Fixes to get minimal Windows support: fix imports, fix locateProgram()

Other changes:

 * Break the API:
   - Rename PtraceDebugger.traceSysgood() to PtraceDebugger.enableSysgood()
   - Rename PtraceDebugger.trace_sysgood to PtraceDebugger.use_sysgood
   - Remove PtraceProcess.readCode()
 * Create createChild() function which close all files except stdin,
   stdout and stderr
 * On FreeBSD, on process exit recalls waitpid(pid) to avoid zombi process

python-ptrace 0.4.2 (2008-08-28)

 * BUGFIX: Fix typo in gdb.py (commands => command_str), it wasn't possible to
   write more than one command...
 * BUGIFX: Fix typo in SignalInfo class (remove "self."). When a process
   received a signal SIGCHLD (because of a fork), the debugger exited because
   of this bug.
 * BUGFIX: Debugger._wait() return abnormal process exit as a normal event,
   the event is not raised as an exception
 * PtraceSignal: don't clear preformatted arguments (eg. arguments of execve)

python-ptrace 0.4.1 (2008-08-23)

 * The project has a new dedicated website: http://python-ptrace.hachoir.org/
 * Create cptrace: optional Python binding of ptrace written in C (faster
   than ptrace, the Python binding written in Python with ctypes)
 * Add name attribute to SignalInfo classes
 * Fixes to help Python 3.0 compatibility: don't use sys.exc_clear()
   (was useless) in writeBacktrace()
 * ProcessState: create utime, stime, starttime attributes

python-ptrace 0.4.0 (2008-08-19)

Visible changes:

 * Rename the project to "python-ptrace" (old name was "Ptrace)
 * strace.py: create --ignore-regex option
 * PtraceSignal: support SIGBUS, display the related registers and
   the instruction
 * Support execve() syscall tracing

Developer changes:

 * New API is incompatible with 0.3.2
 * PtraceProcess.waitProcessEvent() accepts optional blocking=False argument
 * PtraceProcess.getreg()/setreg() are able to read/write i386 and x86-64
   "sub-registers" like al or bx
 * Remove iterProc() function, replaced by openProc() with explicit
   call to .close() to make sure that files are closed
 * Create searchProcessesByName()
 * Replace CPU_PPC constant by CPU_POWERPC and create CPU_PPC32 and CPU_PPC64
 * Create MemoryMapping object, used by readMappings() and findStack() methods
   of PtraceProcess
 * Always define all PtraceProcess methods but raise an error if the function
   is not implemented
