IOmeter 1.1.0 Release Candidate available

After a good while, we have a new release of Iometer.

The most obvious change is the versioning scheme. The choice of numbering does not indicate anything major -- just simplifying the numbers.

We do have a good number of useful features implemented, the details of which are forthcoming.

We are also including OSX binaries for the first time. Our hope is to provide more pre-built binaries in the future.... read more

Open Discussion Forum closed

Dear iometer users,

to streamline our communication with each other, we have closed the Open Discussion Forum to focus on the iometer-user mailing list. We think this is a more convenient way of keeping the community close.

Hope to see you there soon.

New package for Development Snapshots

There is a new file area package called "iometer-devel". It contains so called development snapshots - so consolidated snapshots from the latest CVS stuff. The main purpose is to provide developers/contributers with more recent stuff then the latest stable build can offer. It therefor solves the problem of a.) restrictive firewalls, b.) lack of compiler for the Windows GUI and c.) big efforts while applying patches was based on the latest stable code.
