Named Data Networking (NDN) Project Monthly Newsletter for February 2015
The NDN project team compiles and publishes this newletter monthly
to inform the community about recent activities, technical news,
meetings, publications, presentations, code releases, and upcoming
events. You can find these newsletters posted on the Named Data
Networking Project blog.
* We posted two new NDN FAQ videos:
- Lan Wang, Associate Professor of Computer Science at University
of Memphis answers the question, "What routing strategies are
being explored for NDN?"
- David Clark, Senior Research Scientist at MIT Computer Science
and Artificial Intelligence Lab addresses the question, "Why
should future internet architecture research be application

* We announced the release of version 0.3.0 of Named Data Networking
Forwarding Daemon (NFD) and ndn-cxx library.
The detailed release notes:
- for NFD: http://named-data.net/doc/NFD/0.3.0/RELEASE_NOTES.html
- for ndn-cxx library: http://named-data.net/doc/ndn-cxx/0.3.0/RELEASE_NOTES.html
More details about NFD, tutorials, HOWTOs, a FAQ and other useful
resources are available on official webpages of NFD and ndn-cxx:
We also have updated the NFD developer's guide to match the new
* We announced new versions of NdnCon version 0.4.0 and NDN-RTC
You can find the updated wiki page for NdnCon at
with sections including:
- How to use NdnCon
- NDN daemon configuration
* We announced the release of an updated version of NDN File System
(ndnfs), along with a Firefox NDN add-on used to access retreat
documents via NDN. The NDNFS file system provides a file access
interface and stores files as well as their network-related
metadata for remote access via NDN. Please see the technical
We also internally distributed and tested a Firefox browser add-on
using NDN-JS used for easy access to files.
* We released version 0.3 of jNDN, the NDN Common Client LIbrary for Java.
One major change comes in the form of support for the Maven build
system, which can automatically include jNDN as a dependency from
the Maven Central Repository:
This release includes other changes. See the CHANGELOG for details:
* We released the Android version of NFD available publicly at:
* A group at Orange SA (orange.com) announced the first release of
a tool, lurch, for conducting experimental research with NDN.
The group has used the tool to successfully run NDN experiments
in a large grid (www.grid5000.fr). The lurch tool applies equally
well to test smaller experiments in a local cluster of servers.
Please find the source and related documentation at:
* Intel released three Java libraries based on jndn that they use
to simplify some NDN functionality. The source for the tools have
been released under LGPLv3 and can be pulled in to any Maven
project from the Central Repository. Andrew Brown
<andrew.brown at intel.com> would appreciate feedback, suggestions,
and pull requests.
