Hi Andrew!!!

It is still Java but with the JIT compilers available in Java these days it is almost native.  The big gain would be to make it multi-threaded.  From my looking at it so far it appears to be single threaded.  I would think that it would be natural for something like this to be multi-threaded.

HI Michael!  Thanks!  This is fantastic news on FreeRouting.net finally going open source.  I was afraid it would disappear forever and we’d all be screwed.  Now it is part of the permanent internet landscape!

Has there been a FreeRouting wiki or project page like SourceForge put up?  Now that the source is available I would think people would like to understand it better and even help improve the software.


The tool is now finally a standalone Windows/Linux application and that is even better.  Is it still a Java application?  Can it be compiled to a Windows/Linux native binary?  I would think just native compilation would improve performance some if only a small amount.


Thanks for letting us know about this and putting it on the wiki.


Have a great day!
