Dear all,

We are pleased to announce ndnSIM version 2.0 (http://ndnsim.net/2.0/), a new
major release of the NDN simulator.  The code through extensive refactoring and
rewriting, resulted in the following key new features:

- ndnSIM no longer re-implements basic NDN primitives and directly uses
  implementation from ndn-cxx library (NDN C++ library with eXperimental
  eXtensions, http://named-data.net/doc/ndn-cxx/)
- All NDN forwarding and management is implemented directly using source code of
  Named Data Networking Forwarding Daemon (NFD, http://named-data.net/doc/NFD/)
- Packet format changed to the NDN packet format

Please note that ndnSIM 2.0 has major refactoring and simulation scenarios
written for previous releases most likely would need to be changed to run on
ndnSIM 2.0 platform.
