The LinkSmart development team is pleased to announce the release of LinkSmart 2.0. Our vision is to build an interoperability platform that facilitates the creation of cost-effective, high-performance cyber-physical systems and internet of things applications. LinkSmart constitutes an OSGi-based middleware for networked systems and offers a wide range of functionality through loosely coupled web services. LinkSmart 2.0 is a significant release in several respects. Most importantly, the NetworkManager has been subject to substantial refactoring to achieve a clearer separation of concerns. This effort allows to a significant reduction of complexity and increases understandability, maintainability and reusability of components at the same time.
