Good news for those of you wondering about what will happen to the annual OMNeT++ Summit in the year of the global pandemic: Indeed there will be a summit, an online one. This will give us the chance to explore the advantages of the new format, while also making participation for researchers and students from outside Europe significantly easier. We are looking forward to having a geographically much more diverse audience than in the previous years.
To facilitate real discussions and useful feedback, the online Summit will be organized as informal presentations in small groups. Also, this year we will skip requiring a formal multi-page paper as submission, an abstract will suffice.
Dates and other important details: The planned Summit dates are
October 5-6, 2020. We foresee two half-day sessions.
Format: informal presentation in small groups.
Please send abstracts of your presentation via email
to Prof. Anna Förster ([email protected]).
Submission deadline: September 15, 2020. More details will be announced later.
We are happy to announce the eighth preview version of OMNeT++ 6.
The main focus of improvements since pre7 was to improve the scalability of the new Analysis Tool. Indeed, the UI is now easily capable of dealing with at least several tens of thousands of result files, and a million result items (this was the input routinely used during the development). If you are unfamiliar with how and why the Analysis Tool was rewritten almost from scratch from the 4.x and 5.x version, read the preview 7 highlights below.
In the Sequence Chart Tool, support for horizontally finite sized events was added. This allows message sends and method calls in the same event to be separated along the y axis.
We are happy to announce the seventh 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.
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.
