What: Release 2 of Arjuna Distributed Programming System From: firstname.lastname@example.org (Arjuna Project) Date: Mon, 17 May 1993 12:37:34 GMT
We are pleased to announce the availability of a new version of Arjuna: a programming system for reliable distributed computing, and the Arjuna mailing list.
The software and the manual for the Arjuna system can be obtained by anonymous ftp: arjuna.ncl.ac.uk (22.214.171.124)
This beta release of ArjunaPR2.0 fixes all known bugs present in ArjunaPR1.2B that have been reported to us or that we have found, and contains only minimal information about how to use the new features provided. This release should be compilable with the following compilers:
AT&T Cfront Release 2.1, on SunOS 4.1.x, (using Sun supplied lex and yacc). AT&T Cfront Release 3.0.1, on SunOS 4.1.x and Solaris 2.1, (using Sun supplied lex and yacc). GCC versions 2.1, 2.2.2, on SunOS 4.1.x, (using flex(v2.3.x) and bison). Patched GCC version 2.3.3 on SunOS 4.1.x and Solaris 2.1, (using flex(v2.3.x) and bison). Sun C++ 2.1, on SunOs 4.1.x, (using Sun's lex++ and yacc++). HP C++ (B2402 A.02.34), HP-UX 8.07, (using HP supplied lex and yacc or lex++ and yacc++).
The major new features are:
- Faster object store. - Support for replicated objects. - Memory resident object store. - Support for ANSAware (not available via ftp)
Arjuna supports nested atomic actions (atomic transactions) for controlling operations on objects (instances of C++ classes), which can potentially be persistent. Arjuna has been implemented in C++ to run on stock platforms (Unix on SUNs, HPs etc). The software available includes a C++ stub generator which hides much of the details of client-server based programming, plus a system programmer's manual containing details of how to install Arjuna and use it to build fault-tolerant distributed applications. The software and the manual can be obtained by anonymous ftp: arjuna.ncl.ac.uk (126.96.36.199)
Several enhancements and ports on various distributed computing platforms are in progress. We would be pleased to hear from researchers and teachers interested in using Arjuna. The programmer's manual contains the e-mail addresses for sending your comments and problem reports.

Subject: Arjuna papers announcement Date: Tue, 8 Jun 1993 16:47:02 GMT
This is to announce the availability of most Arjuna related papers and theses via anonymous ftp from arjuna.ncl.ac.uk. These papers are available in both US Letter and European A4 standards in postscript and should now print on systems. Any problems in printing should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Since there are too many papers to describe in one posting there is an index available in /pub/Arjuna/Index which contains the abstracts from all of the papers/theses and their locations within the ftp hierarchy.
