GNS3 version 0.8.4 is finally released.

Thanks to the precious help of our community, this release brings many improvements and even some new exciting features, the most important being the following ones:

  • Lots of GUI improvements.
  • New hub device.
  • New Idlemax and Idlesleep settings (advanced manipulation of IDLE PC).
  • IOS image and settings test button.
  • New Tool menu to start external scripts/tools.
  • Drag & drop of multiple devices when pressing SHIFT.
  • Temporary projects are created by default.
  • VirtualBox interface numbering starts at 0 (e.g. e0 = VirtualBox interface 1 = eth0 on Linux).
  • Support for 36 network cards in VirtualBox (using ICH9 chipset)
  • New option to save traffic captures in project directories.
  • Experimental auto IDLE PC calculation feature (requires Dynamips > 0.2.8-RC5, included in Windows all-in-one and OSX DMG).
  • Added entries to have Dynamips/Qemu/VirtualBox hypervisors bind/listen to all available IP/host addresses (optional).
  • AW+ router support by Allied Telesis from New Zealand (educational version of their OS to be released).
  • Removed the “Save IOS configs option” in project settings. IOS configs are always saved.
  • Qemu FLASH files are automatically saved in a directory named ‘qemu-flash-drives’ (in the project directory).
  • Dynamips version 0.2.8

Please see our CHANGELOG for the full list.

Downloads are here. [Edit: Well they WILL be there when someone gets around to updating the downloads page (and deleting this edit). In the meantime, try https://sourceforge.net/projects/gns-3/ ... NS3/0.8.4/ - RedNectar]

Updated Debian packages have now been uploaded to http://gns3.serverb.co.uk. NB: These have been built against Debian 7 'Wheezy'
For Ubuntu based distributions, a Launchpad PPA is now available (see here for details) - claydon_dan

Nicely done Jeremy. GNS3-0.8.4 is a tremendous improvement over 0.8.3.1. I would like to extend my thanks to everyone who contributed to the new release, so... THANK YOU!

Cheers,
Jason

OOOPs the check for dynamips version when you do the AutoCalc of Idle-pc doesn't recognise the latest dynamips.

Observation:
I notice that Dynamips 0.2.8-RC3 is the default dynamips for OS-X. Is that intentional?

Indeed, oops... you will have to use Dynamips 0.2.8 RC7 (http://sourceforge.net/projects/gns-3/f ... community/) in order to use Autocalc.

Ok let's schedule a 0.8.4.1 release at the end of this month to fix these kind of bugs. I am sure you will find more ;)

Yes this is intentional. I noticed that recent versions of Dynamips do not work well with Generic Ethernet NIOs, I suspect a compilation issue or pcap library problem. I encourage you to test the last version on OSX to confirm this.

Thanks,

Workin' hard at it!!!!!!

But I must also say thanks for all your hard work. The install for Windows is nice the way it invites you to sign up for an updates newsletter and the thank-you screen.
