Hi all,

we hereby announce a new major release of the HAMcast group communication stack (right before Dec. 21th ;-) ). HAMcast provides a reference implementation of the common multicast API: http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-irtf-samrg-common-api . 

The software package is released as open-source and available online at:

 - http://hamcast.realmv6.org/developers/wiki/download

Besides minor bug fixes, we were able to boost the system performance of the group communication stack and reduce overall CPU utilization. We also added asynchronous multicast sockets that further decrease overhead on the receiver side. 

Note, that no code changes are required for existing HAMcast-enabled applications - just recompile. 

Further information on HAMcast can be found on: 

 - http://http://hamcast.realmv6.org/ and 
 - http://inet.cpt.haw-hamburg.de/ 

If you have any questions don't hesitate to contact us or join the developers mailing-list at: 

 - http://hamcast.realmv6.org/developers/wiki/mailinglist.


P.S. Enjoy Christmas and a healthy start into the New Year ...
