The official release of NetSolve-2.0 is July, 2003. New features implemented in this release include:
Hardware/Software server, this new feature allows for the transparent movement of problems to take advantage of available hardware/software resources improving load balancing over your NetSolve system.
Dynamic server, this feature improves the procedure required to add new problems to a NetSolve server by providing a mechanism to add new problems to a server without having to stop the server and recompile again, as was required previously.
Octave support, Octave is now supported, providing an open source interface for numerical computations comparable to Matlab.
Condor-G support, NetSolve can now use Condor-G, providing a transparent front-end to a Condor pool and the related functionality of a job queuing system.
Distributed Storage Interface (DSI), NetSolve can now be integrated with DSI to provide enhanced data transfer and storage.
GridRPC, this new feature provides a simple remote procedure call mechanism for grid computing using a common API.
Interface Definition Language (IDL), provides library writers with an improved interface for easier integration of new problems into NetSolve.
Cygwin/Mac OSX support, the NetSolve agent, server, and client can now be built and ran on Windows operating systems using Cygwin or Mac OSX.
visPerf Monitor: Improved monitoring system to monitor NetSolve activities using a Java Webstart application.
