Federico Vaga and Alessandro Rubini presented ZIO to FOSEDM '13. The
slide of the presentation are available in the documents section. The
presentation started with a rapid overview of the framework and its

with a simple device.
zio version 1.0
added by Alessandro Rubini on 2013-01-21 21:17:15.934952
I just pushed commit "zio-beta4-96-g1678b014" as zio-v1.0 .
This is 96 commits since we tagged beta4, and in the last two weeks a
has changed to the better, simplifying the internal hairy details and
clarifying the documentation.
The most important features (ignoring bug fixes, for stuff that was
by the new data flow or corner case that never happened):
* the control structure is now 1.0, with alarms and TLV.
* files are renamed, with shorter and better names
* master builds and is tested from 2.6.32 up to current kernels
* the manual has more images, is bigger and clearer
* self-timed devices work perfectly with the default trigger
* zero-size blocks (control-only) are supported both in input and
* TDC and DTC examples are included
* persistent alarms are there (can be cleared in sysfs)
* current-control is available in sysfs for monitoring
* device name and address are available in
Thanks a lot to Federico, for great code and review. Which includes
branch "zio-v1.0-backport" that builds cleanly for 2.6.24 and all
kernels from 2.6.26 up to 2.6.31 (master works for 2.6.32 onwards).
zio-beta4 tagged in the repository
added by Alessandro Rubini on 2012-11-09 23:56:26.247555
The master branch is now tagged zio-beta4. It includes new
drivers for stress-testing and experimenting, some bug fixes for
cases and some incompatibilities to be future-proof (no more serious
incompatibilities are expected).
Real ZIO drivers exists, but they need specialized hardware
and thus are released in different ohwr projects.
We plan to reach 1.0 by the end of the month.

Alessandro Rubini presented the new protocol family ZIO (PF_ZIO) at the
Embedded Linux conference Europe 2012 in Barcellona. The presentation
started with a rapid overview about the ZIO framework to explain the
development context of the new protocol family. Then the presentation
continued with the description of our new protocol family. It concluded
with a demonstration about the ZIO core and the new PF ZIO.
