I’m really pleased to announce that our very latest OpenSplice code base (v6.3) will be made available to the Open Source community on July 8 2013.
OpenSplice Community Edition v6.3 features many innovations and improvements:
- DDS ISO C++ API: The DDS ISO C++ API is the new standard API for programming DDS applications in C++. This new API immensely improves usability, safety and efficiency along with feeling far more idiomatic to a C++ programmer. It is important to say that the DDS ISO C++ API draws most of its concepts from two Open Source projects that we have been running, namely simd-cxx (code.google.com/p/simd-cxx) and Escalier (github.com/kydos/escalier).
- Standalone Deployment. OpenSplice Community v6.3 introduces support for the stand-alone deployment mode which along with the latest DDSI v2.1 implementation, enabling a greatly enhanced ‘zero-configuration’ out-of-the-box experience.
- Fixes and Improvements. Numerous improvements and updates have been made to the code base since OpenSplice v5.5 (the previous Community Edition release), including performance, footprint, robustness as well as several bug fixes.
The FAQs available at http://www.prismtech.com/opensplice/opensplice-dds-community/frequently-asked-questions should hopefully answer most of the questions about the new Community Edition release.
A Webcast covering the details of the release will be presented on July 30 2013. To register for the Webcast please visit http://www.prismtech.com/webcast-signup.
