With addition of the blog to the ØMQ website, "highligths" section became obsolete. We've decided to remove it altogether to save the precious real estate on the web frontpage.
However, to keep the track of what have been happening in the past, all historical highlights were collected and moved to this blog.

- December 15th, 2008: Holger Hoffstätte: In the unlikely case that anybody else is using Gentoo you might be interested in an ebuild for automatic installation, hosted in my private mercurial repository.
- December 9th, 2008: ØMQ version 0.4 was released. Most importantly, it's the first ØMQ package licensed under LGPL. Aside of that ØMQ/0.4 adds support for new platforms (AIX, HP-UX, OpenBSD, QNX Neutrino, Windows) and uses advanced polling mechanisms to cope with thousands of simultaneous network connections.
- November, 14th, 2008: There's a whitepaper presenting performance results for ØMQ/0.3.1 on 10Gb Ethernet available.
- November 11th, 2008: Interesting paper investigating performance of AMQP over InfiniBand can be found here. The benchmark used is based on ØMQ "stock exchange" example.
- November 7th, 2008: Novell partners with FastMQ to tune ØMQ for SUSE Linux Enterprise Real Time.
- October 23th, 2008: We've run few tests comparing latencies on standard and real-time Linux kernels. The tests have shown that real-time kernel is able to eliminate all the latency peaks. Still, it does so with the trade-off of slightly increasing average latency.
- October, 13th, 2008: There's a whitepaper presenting performance results for ØMQ/0.3.1 on top of SDP/InfiniBand stack available.
- October, 8th, 2008: ØMQ is LGPL'd from now on! LGPL version is available in the form of source code in Subversion at the moment. LGPL'd package is coming soon.
- September 25th, 2008: ØMQ version 0.3.1 was released. It's backwards compatible with version 0.3 and adds some usability features like allowing to use network interface name instead of IP address, single centralised include file, man pages, etc.
- September 25th, 2008: Document describing how to build ØMQ on QNX neutrino real-time operating system was contributed by Alexej Lotz.
- September 22nd, 2008: High Performance on Wall Street: meet FastMQ Inc. at the Roosevelt Hotel, New York, NY
- September 9th, 2008: "Python and C extensions for ØMQ are available. Performance results are not yet available, but coming soon."
- September 4th, 2008: "Tests with ØMQ on the top of SDP-MX/Myricom-10GbE stack show end-to-end latency of 13.4 microseconds. For those striving for ultra-low latency, I would suggest visiting Myricom's stall at High Performance on Wall Street conference (New York, September 22nd, 2008) and asking for detailed performance figures."
- September 3rd, 2008: "Java extension for ØMQ is available. It's not a part of official ØMQ package yet, so you have to download is separately and build it by hand. Performance tests show end-to-end latency of 36 microseconds and throughput of 1.5 million messages a second."
- September 2nd, 2008 (discussion on ØMQ mailing list): "I work in an smallish trading organization where we own licenses to Tibco/Elvin and 29West's LBM in addition to market data system built on another messaging system whose API is hidden to us. Nothing would delight us more than a viable open source solution which will be there for a while and free us from vendor lockin or the threat of end of product lifecycle event."
- September 2nd, 2008 (discussion on ØMQ mailing list): "I do not see any competitor to ØMQ but I do know a few closed source messaging vendors. These vendors are now stuck with a hard to sell product and an uncertain economic future - remember Talarian? However, once ØMQ gets some traction, they will see the light. Open sourcing to build critical mass will be a natural strategy for them."
- August 11th, 2008: "We are happy to announce that version 0.3 of ØMQ lightweight messaging kernel is out of the door! The main improvements are improved usability by adhering to standard messaging paradigm of routing messages into message queues and improved performance (over 3 million messages a second)."
- August 6th, 2008 (Andy Piper's blog): "For some non-IBM messaging middleware updates, just to note that ØMQ sounds intriguing. I’ve done a lot of work with clients in the financial sector in particular, so I’ll be interested to see how this develops. One of the nice things about my other "pet" product, WebSphere Message Broker, is that it sits in the sweet spot of connectivity between different transports and protocols, so I guess I’ll be looking at how to make things talk to one another if ØMQ takes off."
