The new version includes a major new feature: ndnSIM-specific implementation of Face abstraction from ndn-cxx library. As a direct result of this new feature: – we have enabled support for NFD’s RIB manager, and – ndnSIM can now use codebases of existing applications to drive simulations. For more details about the release, refer to the NDNsim 2.1 release notes.Source code, instruction how to install how to compile ndnSIM, tutorials, FAQs, and other useful resources are available on official ndnSIM website.
  • NDN-CCL: We have new releases on GitHub of each Common Client Library, NDN-CPP, PyNDN, NDN-JS and jNDN. The primary change, deprecated support for NDNx. Other changes include bug fixes for each library.
  • We encourage users to download and try out the latest version of NdnCon v0.6.7. We do not yet recommend it as a reliable subsitute for existing conferencing tools, however, we made extensive use of it during NDNComm 2015 for realtime streaming of the proceedings.
  • Starting next week, Peter Gusev and Jiachen Wang of UCLA REMAP will hold online office hours on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1:00-2:00P PDT to help users install and use NdnCon. Please watch the ndn-interest@lists.cs.ucla.edu mailing list for instructions on how to try NdnCon before joining the office hours with questions.You can join the NdnCon online office hours on webex.

We usually hold these seminars on Wednesday from 2-3p (PST). So, if you would like to be included in the NDN Seminars, please contact Jongdeog Lee <jlee700@illinois.edu> for the most up-to-date information regarding upcoming seminars.
