NEWS for strace version 4.23

  • Changes in behaviour

    • On x32 personality, 64-bit syscalls (such as readv) are now shown with #64
      suffix instead of "64:" prefix. Unlike the old names, these new names
      can be used in syscall qualification expressions.
    • Changed error number output format: error numbers are consistently
      printed as "-1 ECONST (Error description)"
      for known errors and as "-1 (errno 123)" for unknown errors,
      regardless of -e raw qualification settings. One can specify
      -X raw for displaying raw error numbers unconditionally.
    • Unfetchable addresses inside arrays are now printed as comments.
    • Obsolete IA-32 mode syscall names are no longer printed on ia64.
  • Improvements

    • Implemented libdw backend for -k option, configured at build time
      using --with-libdw option.
      Whether -k option is compiled is now configured at build time
      using --enable-stacktrace option.
    • Added -X option for configuring xlat output formatting (addresses
      Debian bug #692915).
    • Added support for personality designation ("64", "32", or "x32") to syscall
      qualifications in -e trace expressions.
    • Implemented injection of syscalls with no side effects as an alternative
      to injection of an invalid syscall (-e inject=SET:syscall= expression).
    • Improved support for reproducible builds (addresses Debian bug #896016).
    • Implemented decoding of BPF_PROG_QUERY and BPF_RAW_TRACEPOINT_OPEN bpf
      syscall commands.
    • Implemented decoding of INOTIFY_IOC_SETNEXTWD and PERF_EVENT_IOC_* ioctl
      commands.
    • Implemented decoding of PR_GET_SPECULATION_CTRL and PR_SET_SPECULATION_CTRL
      prctl syscall options.
    • Enhanced decoding of bpf, getsockopt, setsockopt, and socket syscalls.
    • Enhanced decoding of NETLINK_KOBJECT_UEVENT and NETLINK_ROUTE protocols.
    • Enhanced decoding of *_DIAG_MEMINFO netlink attributes.
    • Enhanced decoding of BTRFS_*, FS_IOC_*, SIOCGIFHWADDR, and SIOCSIFHWADDR
      ioctl commands.
    • Enhanced decoding of AF_BLUETOOTH socket addresses.
    • Implemented decoding of io_pgetevent syscall.
    • Wired up rseq syscall.
    • Updated lists of ADJ_*, BPF_*, BPF_F_*, BPF_PROG_TYPE_*, ETH_P_*, FPE_*,
      IFF_*, IPPROTO_*, MAP_*, MS_*, MSG_*, NETLINK_*, PACKET_*, PROT_*, SCTP_*,
      SECCOMP_FILTER_FLAG_*, SEGV_*, SEM_*, SHM_*, SW_*, V4L2_CID_*,
      V4L2_CTRL_CLASS_*, and V4L2_PIX_FMT_* constants.
    • Updated lists of ioctl commands from Linux 4.17.
  • Bug fixes

    • Fixed decoding of msgtyp argument of msgrcv syscall.
    • Fixed fallback definitions for F_*, MCL_*, MSG_ZEROCOPY, SI_*,
      and SOL_SOCKET constants.
    • Fixed -e trace=%pure expression on mips.

NEWS for strace version 4.22

  • Changes in infrastructure

  • Changes in behaviour

    • When printing string data, '8' and '9' following an octal escape sequence
      no longer lead to unabbreviated octal escape sequence output, as they used
      to do.
    • Angle brackets are now printed as octal number escape sequences
      in the output of paths associated with file descriptors.
    • Data dump for write syscalls (-e write) is performed regardless
      of successfulness of these syscall (addresses Debian bug #436284).
    • -r and -t options are now affect output independently. Previously,
      -r option led to ignoring of the -t option (addresses Debian bug #466195).
  • Improvements

    • Implemented delay injection (-e inject=SET:delay_enter= and
      -e inject=SET:delay_exit= options).
    • Added -A option for opening output files in append mode
      (addresses Debian bug #528488).
    • IPv6 addresses shown in socket information in -yy mode are now printed
      in brackets.
    • Enhanced decoding of bpf, prctl and ptrace syscalls.
    • Enhanced decoding of BTRFS_IOC_INO_PATHS, BTRFS_IOC_LOGICAL_INO, and PTP_*
      ioctl commands.
    • Enhanced NETLINK_ROUTE protocol decoding.
    • Updated lists of signal codes.
    • Updated lists of BPF_*, BTN_*, ETH_P_*, INET_DIAG_BC_*, KEY_*, POLL*, RWF_*,
      SCHED_FLAG_*, SCTP_* and error constants.
    • Implemented block/character device number printing in -yy mode.
    • Known pixel/SDR format names are printed as comments for pixelformat fields
      in v4l2 structures.
    • Enhanced decoding of kern_features syscall.
    • Enhanced NETLINK_NETFILTER netlink protocol decoder.
    • Optimized handling of large number of tracees.
    • Improved wall clock time measurement in syscall count statistics
      (-c -w option).
    • Extended the range of allowed values in -e inject=...:retval= expression.
    • Added i18n support.
    • Updated lists of ioctl commands from Linux 4.16.
    • Enhanced manual page.
  • Bug fixes

    • Fixed build on m68k.
    • Fixed v4l2 pixelformat decoding on big-endian architectures.
