  • April 5 -- new feature freeze, ns-3.17 release candidate 1 posted
  • April 19 April 26 -- code freeze, final RC candidate <-- slipping until blocker bugs are resolved
  • April 24 April 30 -- ns-3.17 released if no blocking issues remain on April 26 RC <--slipping until blocker bugs are resolved

List of current blockers is listed below; more up to date list may be on the Bugzilla tracker itself.

  • Ubuntu 12.10 and 13.04 (32/64 bit systems)
  • Ubuntu 12.04 LTS and 10.04 LTS (64 bit)
  • Fedora 17 and 18 (32/64 bit systems)

  • Linux on PowerPC hardware
  • Debian 6.0 and 7.0 (64-bit)
  • Linux Mint

ns-3.17 will be packaged as a source tarball as before: ns-allinone-3.17.tar.bz2.

The main difference is that the bake build system is planned to be added, to support inclusion of Direct Code Execution project.

new feature reviews

The following code is likely to be merged provided that final integration issues (documentation, testing, examples) are resolved:

The following code is not currently on the merge path for ns-3.17:

Bugs being worked

We will use bugzilla to track bug priorities (esp. P1 blocker bugs) for the release.

Current blockers:

  • bug 1658 (documentation for bake)
  • bug 1657 (bake)
  • bug 1651 (DSR documentation of changes)
  • bug 1650 (LTE documentation of changes)
  • bug 1649 (bindings for fd-net-device)
  • bug 1639 (bake)
  • bug 1637 (bake)
  • bug 1636 (bake)
  • bug 1622 (apiscan)

Also, need to fix bug 1644 although we could probably release with it by changing the example:

  • bug 1644 (flow monitor valgrind)

Also, bindings scanning depends on this, which may be resolved already by latest git repository version of gccxml (need to confirm):

  • bug 1530 (apiscan)

Bugs in ns-3 models

Open bugs will be worked on a best-effort basis.
