OMNeT++ 6.0 Preview 12 Available

We are very happy to announce that OMNeT++ 6.0 preview 12 has been released. Compatibility updates for INET will be released in the coming days.

This prerelease contains many small changes and improvements. An ARM (aarch64) Linux download is also available that can be used as a base for ARM based Docker images (or run directly on your Rasberry Pie). The Linux aarch64 variant can be used also to run natively on ARM based MACs in Docker (as long as you have an XServer installed).

OMNeT++ Online Summit 2021 – Call for Participation

Read further details and the CfP on the OMNeT++ summit website.

To facilitate the interaction among participants, the summit will employ a highly interactive presentation format called ConversTation, which provides much more feedback and useful discussion time than traditional talks.

Following the success of previous editions, the 2021 Community Summit will include a hackathon event. This provides the chance for developers of simulation models and frameworks to consult OMNeT++ core developers and fellow developers, to improve the quality and interoperability of models and frameworks.

Dates and other important details:

  • Submission deadline: July 15, 2021 July 26, 2021.
  • Hackathon proposal deadline: August 08, 2021.
  • Summit event: September 8-10, 2021.
OMNeT++ 6.0 Preview 11 Available

We are very happy to announce that OMNeT++ 6.0 preview 11 has been released (along with some compatibility updates in INET). Please use INET 3.7.1, INET 4.2.3 or INET 4.3.1 if you are working with preview 11 or later.

This prerelease contains many small changes and improvements. The highlight of this release is the Sequence Chart tool in the IDE which has been revised and significantly extended with new functionality. NOTE: the eventlog (.elog) file format has changed in a non-backward-compatible way.

Our documentation site, docs.omnetpp.org has been reorganized to become a collection of various OMNeT++-related tutorials, technical articles. Topics currently include:

  • Porting real-life protocol implementations and other networking software into OMNeT++ as a simulation model
  • Debugging C++ on Linux: State of art, and tips on improving the debugging experience
  • Using Docker for repeatable simulations, continuous integration and more
  • Using Amazon Web Services (AWS) and other cloud services for running large-scale simulation campaigns
  • Result analysis using Python, Pandas and Matplotlib

INET 4.3 Released

We are happy to announce INET Framework version 4.3. Go ahead and  get it now!

This is a new minor stable release of the INET 4.x branch. The highlights of this release are the infrastructure for Time-Sensitive Networking protocols, the EIGRP routing protocol and DCTCP congestion control.

For TSN support, a new modular Ethernet MAC and PHY layer model has been added which provides Ethernet frame preemption, Ethernet cut-through switching, a gating mechanism for packet queueing, and a clock model which also models clock drifting.

New API level features include intra-node packet streaming, inter-node transmission update support, bit level packet data identity tracking, and the ability to define and measure packet flows.

There are also a number of small improvements, and several bug fixes. Some changes are backward incompatible, so existing models may need to be updated. This version requires OMNeT++ 6.0 preview 10 or later.
