Summary:SimGrid v3.5 released
Project:SimGrid

Hello all,

For the impatients, go here:
http://gforge.inria.fr/frs/?group_id=12

this is my great pleasure to announce the version 3.5 of the SimGrid
toolkit. This simulation toolkit enables to study the performance and
correctness of distributed applications at large scale. The most visible
features are the carefully assessed models and the high scalability and
versatility of the framework.

This release is the result of 7 months of hard work, with a very long
list of major and minor changes. For example, there were 1153 commits
since the 3.4.1 version where there were "only" 8833 commits in the 3.x
branch of SimGrid since 2003. This improvement pace is made possible by
the funding of the ANR through the USS-SimGrid project. The biggest
changes are below (and also in the NEWS file) while the complete
ChangeLog is included in the archive.
