FLoM development roadmap has been announced.
The next generation of FLoM, codename Io.Ga.Co, will embrace IoT with new features.
See the details here: https://sourceforge.net/p/flom/wiki/roadmap/
This release adds a Python wrapper to libflom: Python developers will be able to interface FLoM using a Python standard interface.
This release adds a PHP wrapper to libflom: PHP developers will be able to interface FLoM using a PHP standard interface.
This release contains some other important changes: take a look to ChangeLog file before installation.
This release adds a C++ wrapper to libflom: C++ developers will be able to interface FLoM using a C++ standard interface without any C specific pitfalls including one single file (flom.hh).
This release backports some fixes from 0.9.0 to allow some users to have the same fix level without the new 0.9.0 shape (flom+libflom).
This is the test record:
Release: 0.7.2 Date: 2014-12-10 Ubuntu 10.04 / x86 / physical Ubuntu 14.04 / x86_64 / virtual (Azure)
This release is intended only for the users that, for any reason, cannot switch to 0.9.0
I'm proud to announce release 0.9.0: it fixes some bugs and supply an easy to use client API to develop your own C program.
API documentation is provided with the tarball in directories doc/html and doc/examples.
Release 0.7.1 (release date 2014-10-03) adds two new command options (-x, -X) to stop a flom daemon without using kill command.
-X stops the daemon immediately, but it writes a message in syslog before exiting
-x stops the daemon after it completed to serve the current clients
With 6 new options, release 0.3.1 offers a better network (TCP/IP and UDP/IP) control.
After successful completion of release 0.1.x (single system implementation), it will took some time to produce release 0.3.x: new release will address multiple system implementation issues to transform flom in a Distributed Lock Manager.
