NetRexx Change History
This release is the reference implementation for NetRexx 2, and requires Java 1.1.2 (or later) to run. NetRexx 2 releases are a superset of NetRexx 1.00, as published in the NetRexx Language Definition. New language features since NetRexx 1.00 are documented in the NetRexx Supplement.
[22 May 2001] This is a maintenance release; loop i=a to b until x incorrectly optimized the control variable test in some circumstances. No other changes are included.
[1 Apr 2001] This is a maintenance release which corrects excessive memory usage when large numbers of files are imported and the -prompt option is used. No other changes are included.
[26 Aug 2000] This is a major new release, which consolidates the changes of NetRexx 1.1 and adds the NetRexx interpreter and improved documentation. The enhancements are:

[1 Sep 1998] This version is a maintenance release, primarily to support changes in the Java Development Kit (JDK) introduced for Java 1.2. Please see the NetRexx User's Guide for details for additions to the class path needed to run under Java 1.2.
The other changes are:
[26 May 1998]
- The new var option on trace lets changes to named variables be traced selectively. For example:
- The trace instruction may now be used before the first class instruction; it then applies to all classes in a program.
- Context is now shown while tracing – if a trace line is produced from a different program or thread than the preceding trace line, then an indicator line (prefixed with ---) is displayed.
See the NetRexx Supplement for details.
