Il s’agit du tout premier projet gratuit et open-source permettant de faire tourner Linux sur un système Microsoft Windows. Concrètement il s’agit d’un portage du noyau linux, permettant de se dispenser de logiciel tel que VMware.

* Version 0.7.2
* #1324092: cofs rename replace existing file.
* #1791993: Ship modules with root as owner and group.
* #1853578: memory usage limit: 0 MB on machines with 4 GB RAM.
* Fix cofs chdir with wildcards on existing upper/lower directory.
* Don't drop last char from config, if last line no ends with CRLF.

Console and daemons:
* New menu entries in FLTK console
Power off: Fast power down coLinux kernel. Without file sync!
Reboot: Sends ctrl-alt-del, init process goes into runlevel 6
Shutdown: Calls "/sbin/shutdown -h now" with fallback to "/sbin/halt"
Shutdown will automatic call from stopping as service,
or if user clicks close on the colinux-daemon.
* New: "colinux-daemon -p pidFile" stores ID of coLinux in file pidFile.
"colinux-console-fltk|nt -p pidFile" attach the monitor from stored
ID. With this mechanism can open a /named/ console without knowing
the current ID (Process ID). pidFile will removed on normal shutdown.
* Network daemons TAP, Bridged and Slirp runs with process priority high.
* Added a nice colinux 3D logo image to the "About" box (Nlucas)
* Stop with error, if double defined device (cobd,cofs,eth,exec)
* Optimized workaround for DEP/noexecute problems (flush tlb).

* Kernel has been updated to 2.6.22
(Thanks to Anders Eriksson for 2.6.13, 2.6.14, 2.6.15)
* Holds multiple kernel versions in patch series files
(2.6.12, 2.6.13, 2.6.14, 2.6.15, 2.6.17, 2.6.22)
* cloop updated to 2.06 (compressed loop blockdevice from Knoppix)
* Hotplug enabled, udev usable

* Text was to big for description box in installer. [Bugs item #1819219]
* Add Ubuntu 6.06.1 to images page. Update image Fedore 7. Add web link
to Notes for each image. Link to 'other images on SF' clickable now.
* Un-/Installer checks a running coLinux before overwrite or remove old
files. [Bugs item #1396459, #1549148]
* Uninstall old colinux with old exefile, path from registry uninstaller
[Support Requests-1553923]
* Update tapinstall.exe (alias devcon) from DDK 3790.1830 (Mar 24 2005)
* Block installing on 64 bit systems.

* Linux as host: Restructed build of colinux.ko, use kbuild system
from host. Host with regparm=3 is usable (tested host 2.6.22).
* Linux Kernel and daemons can build with differ gcc versions now.
ABI is runtime checked.
Usable gcc for kernel: 3.4.x, 4.0.x, 4.1.x, 4.2.x up to 4.3.0
* Warnings from gcc 4.x fixed.

* New: Debugging.txt with hints for debugging colinux start problems.
* Option "-v level" enable verbose messages and debug prints on console.
* colinux-debug-daemon: Only connect to driver, if args -s settings.
* Leveled debug output to Dbgview.exe (
Needs to enable facility/level with colinux-debug-daemon before.

Updated libraries and tools:
* gcc 4.1.2 (unpatched now, not from mingw)
* binutils 2.17.50
* mingw 3.11
* w32api 3.9
* WinPcap 4.0.1
