Hi all,

a new release of our HAMcast prototype software is available at:


HAMcast provides technology transparent access to multicast services it 
provides an API that is implemented in compliance with working group 
item [draft-irtf-samrg-common-api].
HAMcast enables application programmers to develop group communication 
software without specifying a multicast technology at compile time (i.e. 
by choosing the appropriate API). Instead they should use the HAMcast 
API, and the middleware will transparently bind/choose an available 
multicast technology at runtime.

Release Changelog:

  - Java client library with common multicast API
  - switch build chain from automake to cmake
  - minor bug fixing
  - updated documentation
  - new software tools and examples
