Version 0.95 of the DIET Agents software has just been released. It is
available for download from SourceForge.net at
Version 0.95 provides support for agent persistence, support for SSL
sockets, support for controlling groups of agents, several minor bug
fixes and other improvements.
In the core layer, changes were made that enable serialisation of agents
while they are running. Together with the newly added ability to pause
agents by locking them, this provides basic support for agent
persistence. In the ARC layer, a package was added that supports
visiting of agents which enables convenient external control of a group
of agents. This can for instance be used in order to save agents to
file, as demonstrated by the new "persistent sorting" demo application.
The kernel now provides the ability to use thread queuing, enabling
agents to accept events even when there are temporarily no threads
available (but this feature should be used with care!). Various minor
bugs were fixed in the remote communication functionality provided by
the ARC layer. See the release notes for details and other improvements.
