Timpani (aka JXTA 2.2) is baked ... time to dig in.
It just keeps getting better.
We are pleased to announce the availability of a new JXTA J2SE stable
release, 2.2 "Timpani". The 2.2 release is a significant release that
contains a number of new features and some important bug fixes.
This release is designed to be API and protocol backwards compatible
with other JXTA J2SE 2.x releases. <more>
The new feature set is quite impressive:
- PSE Membership Service
- CBID ID Format (crypto based id)
- CBJX Message Transport (crypto based JXTA transport)
- Extendable Advertisement
- Lightweight PeerGroups
- Message Transport "IOCTL" API / Router "IOCTL" Implementation
- Expanded JXTA Configuration API
- Improved JNLP packaging
and the resolved issues list is massive.
JXTA.next (aka Chirasco) is taking shape at this time so do consider dialing in and giving JXTA a go. Good times.
Java == platform independence
XML == application independence
JXTA == network independence
