Warning: the code is still in a very early experimental state. Some features are broken or not completely implemented. Don't expect to be able to use it right away in a production system.

The SST library distribution does not yet have a stable release. Anonymous Subversion access is available however. You can browse the source code, or check out a copy of the repository:

  % svn co svn://
To build the library, make sure you have Qt 4.1 or later and OpenSSL 0.9.8 or later installed, then type:
  % cd sst
  % misc/setup
  % ./configure
  % make
To get started using the library in your application, see the main page of the API documentation.


SST is a part of the UIA project at the Parallel and Distributed Operating Systems Group in MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory. UIA is sponsored by the T-Party Project, a joint research program between MIT and Quanta Computer Inc., Taiwan, by the National Science Foundation under Cooperative Agreement ANI-0225660 (Project IRIS) and the NSF FIND program, with additional support from Nokia Research Center Cambridge.
