We are happy to announce that OMNeT++ 5.1 Preview 2 is available for download. This release significantly improves and builds upon functionality introduced in version 5.0, and also raises the bar in other areas. Highlights include: a much-improved Qtenv that now replaces Tkenv as the default runtime GUI; support for smooth custom animation and video recording; better support for simulation campaigns in managing and performing a large number of runs and in result recording/processing; experimental support for SQLite-based result files; updated toolchain and libraries on Windows; 64-bit Windows support; updated Eclipse base for the IDE.
We are happy to announce the latest version of the INET Framework. INET 3.4 requires OMNeT++ 5.0 or later.
One of the highlights of this release is a Wireless Tutorial (also available online), which is a recommended read for everyone into wireless simulations with INET. An animated screenshot from the tutorial can be seen below.
INET 3.4 also features advanced visualization. Visualizer modules are decoupled from the rest of the simulation, and can display physical objects (obstacles), movement trails, discovered network connectivity, discovered network routes, ongoing transmissions and receptions, radio signals, statistics, and much more. Nearly all visualizers support both the Canvas (2D) and OSG (3D) graphics. Instrument figures that can display statistics and other variables during simulation have also been added.
This release contains mostly bugfixes and some enhancements to the Ethernet, SCTP and Packetdrill models. It is still compatible with both OMNeT++ 4.6 and 5.0. Future INET versions will work only with OMNeT++ 5.0 or later.
We are proud to announce that after a development of nearly two years, OMNeT++ 5.0 is now available for download. This is a major release that introduces significant new features compared to the last 4.x version, for example the Canvas API (2D graphics), OpenSceneGraph-based 3D graphics support, improved logging, a new Qt-based runtime environment that will eventually replace Tkenv, and much more. We have also taken the opportunity of the major release to improve several corners of the OMNeT++ API, and also to get rid of deprecated functionality.
