OpenDMTP client 1.0.3 (C-language) released

The first version of the C-language client reference implementation for OpenDMTP has been released. OpenDMTP is a protocol and framework that allows communications with small devices (mobile phones, PDA's, and other high-latency/low-bandwidth devices), especially geared towards the transmission of GPS, temperature, and other remote monitoring information. The OpenDMTP project also provides software reference implementations for using the OpenDMTP protocol.

The 1.0.3 release of the OpenDMTP client (C-language) is the first packaged release of the OpenDMTP reference implementation. It allows the end-user to gather GPS location data and other tracking information from a client system/device, and includes out-of-the-box support for transmitting this data to a remote server over socket-based connections (a simple server application is included for this purpose).

This package also serves as a C-language developer-kit for those wishing to create their own clients or servers communicating via the OpenDMTP protocol. Reference implementations for other languages, such as Java/J2ME, are forthcoming.
