FINS Framework Version 0.8 is Now Available!

We are pleased to announce the availability of the FINS Framework version 0.8! The source code is available for download from GitHub and documentation (including installation and getting started instructions) are available from this website, with links provided below.

This is a preview release of the FINS Framework. While the core framework is now available for experimentation and modification, there are a few shortcomings. First, the current framework only allows a single process to access the FINS Framework network stack. We are currently working to resolve some bugs related to multiple processes accessing the stack simultaneously. Second, the TCP module is not yet available. As such, only applications that make UDP socket calls are supported at this time. Both multiple application support and a TCP module are expected to be available soon, in version 1.0.

The FINS Framework will be released under an open source license, in all likelihood an OSI Approved license. However, details of the licensing are not yet available. This, too, will be resolved prior to the release of version 1.0.

Please contact us if you have any questions or wish to contribute to the development of the FINS Framework!

You can always access our GitHub repository via the Quick Link in the right hand column of this webpage. Here is a link directly to the version 0.8 release tag. And here is a link directly to a ZIPball download of version 0.8.
