Linux Systemtap 1.0 has been released. There are a few features for this release, like experimental support for unprivileged users, cross-compiling for foreign architectures, matching C++ class and namespace scopes, reduced runtime memory consumption, but more importantly, this release means that Systemtap is finally considered stable and ready for user adoption.

Well that is your opinion and you are entitled to it, just as I am entitled to mine. I don't see the "innovation" in Linux and I have used it on and off for over 13 years. In many ways Linux either mimics or copies what the mainstream UNIX variants have done for years. And yes, I see Systemtap as a copy of DTrace.

This is wasting my time and getting very old. It is obvious I am not the only one who feels the way I do, otherwise Kebabbert's comment would not be modded up to where it is. The difference is I am willing to say something and not just mod a comment up.
