We are happy to announce INET Framework version 4.2. Go ahead and get it now!
This version introduces a new, efficient and powerful multidimensional representation of radio signals, which makes it possible to accurately simulate phenomena such as cross-talk and coexistence. Associated visualization components can display power density heat map, spectrum, spectrogram, etc. (see demo).
INET 4.2 also replaces existing queueing components with a new queueing framework and library that puts an end to the duality of internal and external queues, and can be used at multiple layers, including the creation of traffic generators and other applications (see tutorial). The release also comes with a number of additional improvements and bug fixes.
This version requires OMNeT++ 5.5.1 or later.
We are happy to announce the release of OMNeT++ 5.6. This is primarily a
bugfix release, with a small but practically quite useful NED feature
@reconnect) and minor additions to the simulation library. Regarding
bugfixes, Qtenv has received quite a lot of attention.
We are happy to announce the sixth preview version of OMNeT++ 6. This version contains a completely revamped charting solution in the IDE. It is now completely based on Python3, with support for displaying Matplotlib charts right inside the IDE, accessing simulation results in the form of Pandas DataFrames, and using the built-in (older) charts from Python.
This year’s OMNeT++ Summit, for the first time in the history of annual OMNeT++ workshops and summits, featured a community development session. The following question was posed to the participants on the previous day, with the instruction to think about it: “If the OMNeT++ community had some funds, think of a few tens of thousands of euros or dollars, and it was up to you to spend it in the best interest of the community, what would you do with it?”
Think about your own answer before you read on and see the replies we received…
The 6th OMNeT++ Community Summit in September 2019 at the Hamburg University of Technology was special in more than one way. First, it hosted only the second Hackathon in the history of annual OMNeT++ summits, with slightly more projects participating than before. Second, it broke with the traditional conference format of presenting to a large audience for the first time, and went for ConverStations instead, a more interactive format which encourages direct feedback and more discussions. Third, it featured a Community Development session for the first time ever. We report about the third one (community development) in a separate post, but read on to learn more about the Hackathons and ConverStations, and our experiences with them!
