After a lot of work in CloudSim Plus 2.x releases, we are proud to announce CloudSim Plus 3.0.
Despite there are just minor features that may pass unnoticed, it was made a lot of changes since version 2.3.
The new release provides a totally working network module, fixing bugs that were causing some simulation scenarios to freezy,
such the NetworkVmsExampleBagOfTasksApp and NetworkVmsExampleSimpleApp examples.
It also fixes issues with the computation of file transfer time.
We'd like to thank Lahiaouni Abderrahman for contributing to fixing such issues.
The main feature in this new release is the replacement of the legacy and rudimentary CloudSim Log functionalities by the standard SLF4J
as logging facade and Logback
as the logging engine behind it. Such a feature enables defining levels for log messages and different colors. More important, it enables showing messages just for a specific level. That will make it easier to debug and check simulation results.
This feature required a lot of internal changes but made it simpler to show log messages.
