Development Status

  • June 4th, 2010: UP2P v3.2.0 is now available. This version includes significant stability and performance enhancements as well as updated documentation and an overhaul of the existing User's Guide. Check the downloads page to download the new release.

  • April 28th, 2009: UP2P v.3, supporting link navigation between resources, was presented at LDOW2009 last week. The source code and a binary deployment were released today on our SF.net download page.

  • February 18th, 2009: A separate release of JTella has been made available for download on our sourceforge page.
    The main interest is that the implementation is fully documented, which can be useful for a developer who wants to reuse or modify this part.

  • January 28th, 2009: UP2P v2.0.3 released with some major bug fixes. JTella seems to be working quite well, and the ditrect file uploads work. Likely the last release before introduction of the tuple-space architecture.

  • October 15th, 2008: The SVN repository is up to date with U-P2P v.2.0.2

  • October 9th, 2008: Another small bug fixed. U-P2P v.2.0.2 available on SourceForge.net

  • October 8th, 2008: Two major bugs have been fixed, and today U-P2P v.2.0.1 is available for download.

  • September 29th, 2008: release of U-P2P v.2.0 source code, user guide, and update of U-P2P sourceforge home page to point back here... The beginning of a new era for U-P2P?
    Coming soon: a developer's guide for the refactored source code!

  • September 11th, 2008: release of U-P2P v2.0 alpha (binary).
    This version has reverted to the old functionalities of U-P2P (support of multiple communities without cross-community searches), but a number of problems have been fixed, and the general architecture of U-P2P has been overhauled to serve as basis for the future integration of a tuple-space core.

  • May 2008: after some big construction the refreshed UP2P is wobbly on its legs. The different parts of the applications are decoupled.

  • Summer 2007: we start a plan to refactor the application to allow further research and development.

  • 2006: a prototype of the system works, based on a web application architecture, rebuilt by Neal Arthorne. A paper is published at CASCON'06 based on this new prototype.
    All functional parts of the application are heavily coupled and the beast is difficult to modify.

  • 2002: the first version of UP2P sees the light, created by Alokhe Mukherjee and Babak Esfandiari
