Base Patch Support Applications

The patch below is a support application that can be linked into an EPICS IOC application to fix known problems in EPICS Base without having to rebuild Base itself. Look for instructions inside the tar file.

Development Versions

In addition to the fully tested releases of EPICS Base listed above, the development versions of EPICS Base are available through the Launchpad website, although you will need to install the Bazaar distributed version control software to be able to download them.

We cannot guarantee that the latest development version will even compile, let alone run properly. Do not rely on these versions of EPICS Base, although in most cases they should work properly and contain the latest bug fixes that will be found in the next official release. The release process includes running a comprehensive series of test suites, which the development versions have not necessarily been checked with.

R3.13.x See Launchpad's epics-base project, 3.13 series

Regression Tests

In addition to the various test programs provided with Base, the EPICS core developers also use the following set of regression tests. There were written by Marty Kraimer and are sufficient for our needs at present, but are rather APS-specific and complicated. Eventually we'd like to be able to just type make test and have them all run automatically, but that's just a pipe dream at present. There are no specific releases of this code at present, so these versions are those built for the two main development branches of Base.
