We are happy to announce the release of an incremental update to BRITE,
BRITE 2.1a.  

This release of BRITE unifies both the C++ and the Java generation
into a single framework.  The framework provides a suite of export and
import facilities for topologies.  

The key features in this release are:
 (1) Two new generation models at both AS and Router levels:
     (i)   Barabasi-Albert 2 (Like BA1, but allows rewiring)
     (ii)  GLP  (Bu-Towsley: Infocom02 paper)
 (2) New Export Capabilities to:
     (i)   NS-2 Simulator
     (ii)  SSFNet Simulator
     (iii) Javasim Simulator
     (iv)  Otter Visualization (improved)
 (3) New Import Capabilities from:
     (i)   CAIDA's Skitter Artsdump format
     (ii)  SCAN project maps (Mercator, Lucent Internet Mapping Project) 

The BRITE Analysis Engine (BRIANA) is still being developed and is not
included in this version.  We hope to have an early alpha version
of BRIANA ready by this summer and will notify you when it is ready.
