LinShim6 0.9 released


I am glad to announce that LinShim6 version 0.9 has been released. The major additions are the followings:

- Support for Keepalive Timeout option
- Faster failure recovery for TCP applications (thanks to RTO reset upon path change) - Shim6 can now be compiled as a module. The trigger heuristic is defined as a separate module. So that it can be unloaded or replaced depending on the needs. For example, a server that does not want to initiate a Shim6 negotiation by itself, but only answer to requests, can simply unload the heuristic module. - Added a console option, that allows dynamic setting of the failure detection timer.

The useful links are the followings :

* LinShim6 main page, where you can download the kernel patch and the daemon : http://inl.info.ucl.ac.be/LinShim6 * Updated draft shim6-impl (implementation report) : http://inl.info.ucl.ac.be/publications/shim6-implementation-report-linshim6 * Documentation (not yet updated for 0.9, however) : http://inl.info.ucl.ac.be/publications/linshim6-implementation-shim6-protocol
