new feature reviews

Completed 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. This is expected to be done by 13 April.
  • LTE, buildings, and antenna models: several review requests are here
    • Antenna patch requires resolution of comments in the Rietveld issue tracker
    • LTE merge is blocked by resolution of this issue
    • Buildings merge is being refactored for 1) the separation of pathloss models, and 2) the re-use of position allocators for the buildings allocator
  • Dynamic Source Routing (DSR) -> author is responding to some final comments
  • netanim (added to download.py). Proposed patch here
