The OpenSAF project announced a new version of its open source High Availability (HA) middleware platform for Carrier Grade Linux (CGL) networking systems. Release 3.0 of the Open Service Availability Framework (OpenSAF) adds numerous platform management features, usability improvements, and support for Java APIs, says the project.
Available for free download under the LGPL 2.1 license, OpenSAF 3.0 is based on some 200 contributions from members, as well as beta versions that have been "thoroughly tested by the community" since last August, says OpenSAF. The new release is said to bring the code into closer alignement with recent Service Availability Forum (SAF) and SCOPE Alliance specifications.
