Because of the fact that the current project leader Jan Peters leaves the Fraunhofer-Institute for Computer Graphics Research IGD, the SeMoA project has been transfered to SourceForge.net. In this context, the proprietary license model has been transformed into the "Lesser GNU Public License" (LPGL).

The legal implications of mobile agent technology have been re-evaluated in a study based on the new security mechanisms for agent migration (cf. theses Transaction Security for the Migration of Mobile Agents [ english abstract] and Secure Partial Results [ english abstract]). The study is part of the research project VESUV and took place on December 21, 2005 in Darmstadt, Germany. The provet group around Prof. Alexander Roßnagel at University of Kassel, Germany has been involved as partner. The results of the study will be published in a book in 2006.

New example applications have been added, and some bugs have been fixed. For further information refer to Changelog.
April 08, 2005
A new SeMoA distribution is now available: This distribution provides an advanced agent programming model which builds on hierarchical state machines based on the Diploma thesis "About the component-oriented design of mobile agents and their behavior" [ english abstract] by Jan Haevecker. Further the general SeMoA package prefix for Fraunhofer-IGD has been renamed from 'DE.FhG.IGD' to 'de.fhg.igd' due to problems on Windows systems when having packages with both prefixes 'de.' and 'DE.'. For further information refer to Changelog.

The first SeMoA-Net servers are online and accessible to the public (see SeMoA-Net).
March 31, 2003
LDAP/ATLAS server has been replaced: semoaext.igd.fhg.de is online, again!
March 18, 2003
Despite semoaext.igd.fhg.de is not available at the moment, the current SeMoA distribution allows starting a server with following adjustments of the configuration file semoa/etc/rc.global: set LDAP to disable; set ATLAS_CLIENT to disable; set ATLAS_TRACER to disable.
March 18, 2003
Due to hardware problems our LDAP and ATLAS server semoaext.igd.fhg.de is currently unavailable. That's why certificate exchange as well as agent tracking is not provided, right now. We will replace this server as soon as possible.

Restructured migration protocol via raw socket connection. The new protocol uses now SHIP (simple host information protocol) for looking up the raw ingate's server port.
November 8, 2002
Finished SHIP service. The acronym SHIP stands for simple host information protocol and allows remote queries about current server configuration. This is important e.g. for quering the actual communication port or the maximum size for an agent that is accepted at a specific ingate.

Corrected bug in CVS mirroring. The daily update of SeMoA sources is at your service again. Please refer the download area for details.
