Named Data Networking (NDN) Project Monthly Newsletter for May 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.


* Save the date: We will host the NDN NP Community Meeting 2015
  at the University of California at Los Angeles campus in the
  Little Theatre of McGowan Hall on 28-29 September 2015. We plan
  to hold a Hackathon on Sunday 27 September preceeding the meeting.


* The NDN Testbed added a new node in Norway at the Norwegian
  University of Science and Technology (NTNU) to bring the total
  to 24 nodes. Currently, we have nodes in 9 different countries.
  We have two additional approved nodes that we will add soon.  You
  can see the current status of the testbed at:
  http://www.arl.wustl.edu/~jdd/ndnstatus/ndn_prefix/tbs_ndnx.html and
  the real time bandwidth usage at: http://ndnmap.arl.wustl.edu/.

* We are pleased to announce release of version 0.3.2 of Named Data
  Networking Forwarding Daemon (NFD) and ndn-cxx library.
  The detailed notes for the releases:
  - for NFD: http://named-data.net/doc/NFD/0.3.2/RELEASE_NOTES.html
  - for ndn-cxx library: http://named-data.net/doc/ndn-cxx/0.3.2/RELEASE_NOTES.html

 Source code, installation instructions for pre-compiled binaries
 tutorials, HOWTOs, a FAQ and updated developers guide available
 on the official webpages of NFD and ndn-cxx:
  - http://named-data.net/doc/NFD/0.3.2/ 
  - http://named-data.net/doc/ndn-cxx/0.3.2/
  - http://named-data.net/publications/techreports/ndn-0021-4-nfd-developer-guide/.                                

* We have new versions of the NDN Common Client Libraries for NDN-CPP
  (C++), PyNDN (Python), NDN-JS (JavaScript) and jNDN  (Java).  We
  have deprecated support for NDNx including the ndnb (binary XML)
  wire format (you should use the TLV wire format) and using the
  ndnd or ndnd-tlv forwarder from NDNx (you should use NFD).
  For details, please see the CHANGELOG for each library:
