Updated NEAT software packages available in NorNet Core

Updated NEAT software packages are now available in NorNet Core slivers. Installing NEAT software just requires a «sudo dnf install libneat-socketapi-examples» (and/or libneat-socketapi-devel, libneat-devel, etc.) call to get everything installed. Further information on NEAT can be found on the project website at https://www.neat-project.org! Also see the libneat source repository.

The NEAT project wants to achieve a complete redesign of the way in which Internet applications interact with the network. Its goal is to allow network “services” offered to applications – such as reliability, low-delay communication or security – to be dynamically tailored based on application demands, current network conditions, hardware capabilities or local policies, and also to support the integration of new network functionality in an evolutionary fashion, without applications having to be rewritten. This architectural change will make the Internet truly “enhanceable”, by allowing applications to seamlessly and more easily take advantage of new network features as they evolve.
