I’m delighted to announce that OpenSplice Community Edition v6.4 is now available to the Open Source Community. The new release is the most up-to-date OpenSplice Community Edition and is based on the OpenSplice Enterprise v6.4 code base.
The new release is in keeping with our revised Open Source policy that OpenSplice Community Edition releases will closely follow OpenSplice Enterprise Edition releases, providing the Open Source Community with access to the latest and greatest OpenSplice code base.
OpenSplice Community Edition v6.4 includes the following new features:
- Significant performance improvements both in terms of latency as well as throughput making OpenSplice DDS v6.4 the fastest DDS implementation on the market (with end-to-end latencies over a gigabit Ethernet as low as 42 microseconds)
- TCP/IP support for the DDSI2 networking service, enabling data sharing with a TCP/IP endpoint, for example an application running in a Cloud-based datacenter.
- The first GA implementation of the new DDS ISO C++ PSM (API) available on the market. The new C++ API greatly reduces the complexity of developing DDS applications, and improves efficiency and safety.
In addition, numerous other updates and improvements have been made to the code base since the previous v6.3 release. These include performance and footprint improvements, bug fixes and robustness improvements.
