This page summarizes the ongoing release planning for ns-3.16. The ns-3 release process is listed here and here.

Release schedule

  • Wed Nov 21 -- new feature freeze
    • keeping open for possible BRITE and LTE scheduler inclusion
  • Fri Dec 7 -- code freeze on ns-3-dev
  • Wed Dec 12 -- ns-3.16 released

Proposed supported platforms

  • Linux Ubuntu 12.10
  • Linux Fedora 17 (also 18 beta)
  • Linux Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
  • Ubuntu 10.04.3 LTS
  • Mac OS X Mountain Lion 10.8.2
  • FreeBSD 9
  • FreeBSD 8.2


Source tarball ns-allinone-3.16.tar.bz2.

Tarball unpacks to ns-allinone-3.16 which contains, at top level:

  bake          bakefile.xml  build.py  doc       generate-binary.py
  bakeconf.xml  bake.py       examples  source    test 

The source/ directory contains:

 click       netanim        nsc           pybindgen  
 gccxml-ns3  ns-3.16        openflow-ns3  pygccxml

The new user will either call 'build.py', which will be a wrapper around bake, or else directly call 'bake.py build' and will build all ns-3 components. From that point forward, the user may recurse into the ns-3.16 directory and work from there using ./waf as usual (if all work is ns-3-based and just uses the libraries such nsc and netanim built initially from build.py). If the user wants to work with additional packages (Direct Code Execution), he/she will reconfigure at the bake.py level and download additional components. If the user wants to edit or patch the ns-3 supporting modules (e.g. nsc or netanim) he/she will need to do more work at the bake level.
