This page summarizes the release planning for ns-3.21. The ns-3 release process is listed here and here.

The release manager is TBD. More information about the release plans will be posted in late June.

Release schedule

ns-3.21 is planned for mid-August, 2014.


ns-3.21 will be packaged as a source tarball as before: ns-allinone-3.21.tar.bz2.

The tarball will contain:

  • Latest version of pybindgen
  • Latest version of netanim
  • ns-3.21
  • bake

where bake is used to fetch optional ns-3 components, including DCE.

A patch from ns-3.20 to ns-3.21 will also be posted.

Release platforms

We usually try to keep pace with the latest popular versions of Linux, OS X, and FreeBSD. For the ns-3.21 release, we plan to test against the following newer operating systems:

  • FreeBSD 10.0 (clang 3)
  • OS X 10.10 Yosemite developer preview
  • Ubuntu 14.10 (gcc-4.9)
  • Fedora 21 (gcc-4.9)

as well as selected older or more stable server/LTS releases:

  • Centos 6.5
  • Ubuntu 10.04/12.04/14.04 LTS
  • FreeBSD 9.3
