Hi, folks -- The NLANR/DAST Multicast Beacon, Version 1.0 is now available!

You can get it at:


For those of you running older Beacons, you'll need to upgrade to the new
version before your Beacons will show up in the Central Beacon Server
matrix.   Check out the *new* Central Beacon Server address at:


to see the current matrix.

Many bug fixes and many new features in this version.  There are also
several new features in the works that I didn't want to hold up this
release for, including IPv6 support, the latest version of the UCL RTP
library underneath the hood, a new autoconf configuration, and several others.

For those of you inclined to tinker, please do -- I'm very happy to include
contributed code.  

This is an open source project, so you're all on the team!

Check out:


in the next few days, as I get things put up there.

listserv sharing your comments, questions, bug reports, contributed code,
