This is mostly a bugfix release. The last version was released almost four years ago so it is definitely time for a new release. One big change since the last release is that ORTE is no longer distributed as a part of OCERA project. We created a new project at sourceforge specifically for ORTE. With this change we also moved the source repository from CVS to Git and created a new homepage.

This release does not contain Windows binaries. If you have trouble compiling them from sources, let us know.

About ORTE

ORTE is an open source implementation of Real-Time Publish-Subscribe (RTPS) communication protocol. RTPS is new application layer protocol targeted to real-time communication area, which is build on the top of standard UDP stack. Since there are many TCP/IP stack implementations under many operating systems and RTPS protocol does not have any other special HW/SW requirements, it should be easily ported to many HW/SW target platforms. Because it uses only UDP protocol, it retains control of timing and reliability.
