jNetPcap 1.3.b4 (beta 4) - Released to Testers

We just released version 1.3.b4 (beta 4) to our testing community. The purpose of this release is to test the distribution packages to make sure everything is included in them, before uploading to public distribution servers. The beta 4 code has already been tested and verified to be working correctly within the testing community. We are just making sure we didn't forget to include anything in the various distribution packages (even though its almost fully automatic process.)

1.3.b4 almost ready

The beta 4 release is nearly ready. The memory footprint of a running jNetPcap based application is much better.

Beta 4 does away with old way of finalizing objects using the common Object.finalize method, which gets called when object is no longer referenced and is about to be cleaned up. This was the place where certain native memory related jNetPcap objects, would perform their cleanup, releasing native resources. This approach has many issues which are discussed in this Sun/Oracle and several other articles.

1.3 beta 4 testers needed!

We are looking for volunteers to test out next release of jNetPcap version 1.3 beta 4, before its made available to the general public.

If you are interested in becoming part of the "tester community", please send an email to testers@slytechs.com.

Your help is greatly appreciated. The extra testing before making a public jNetPcap releases, will ensure that we publish the most stable software possible. The benefit is that you can get early access to the latest code and have a greater voice in the development process.
