This page summarizes the ongoing release planning for ns-3.14. No release manager has yet been appointed. The ns-3 release process is listed here and here.

Release schedule

The below schedule is based on a scheduled 4 months between releases.

  1. Wed Apr 4 -- new feature freeze, enter bug fixing stage
  2. Wed Apr 18 -- code freeze on ns-3-dev
  3. Wed Apr 25 -- ns-3.14 released

Proposed supported platforms

  • Fedora 16, 17
  • Ubuntu 11.10, 12.04
  • Centos (5.8 and 6.2?)
  • OS X Snow Leopard and Lion (maybe Mountain Lion?)
  • FreeBSD 8.2, 9.0 (also with clang)
  • Cygwin?


  • traditional ns-allinone-3.14.tar.bz2 packaging
  • Fedora packaging as detailed by Vedran

new feature reviews

Still aiming for ns-3.14:

  • RED queues, mailing list post -> merged to ns-3-dev and is being kept there for now so as to not disturb the repository, but requires some relicensing of original BSD-licensed source before we should release it
  • LTE, buildings, and antenna models: several review requests are here
    • Antenna patch will review and merge hopefully by 1 April
    • LTE merge is blocked by resolution of this issue
  • Dynamic Source Routing (DSR) -> author is responding to some final comments
  • Random Variable Stream
    • need to generate code review; plan is to not touch RandomVariable or any models for ns-3.14
  • TCP Echo Code review here
  • TCP Options
  • netanim (added to download.py)


NSOC/GSOC code merges (seem to be slipping out of ns-3.14 timeframe):
