Michael Weber: Random Bits and Pieces

If we knew what it was we were doing, it would not be called research, would it?

We have released version 1.2 of LTSmin. The following improvements have been implemented:

  • Option parsing is now performed using the popt library. Thus, all long options now start with a double minus.
  • Users can choose between BuDDy and ATermDD as the decision diagram library used in the symbolic tools.
  • A new compressed file format for labeled transition systems with arbitrary numbers of state and edge labels has been implemented.
  • The symbolic tools can write the results of the reachability analysis in the form of an ETF (Enumerated Table Format) file. This ETF file can be used as input for the reachabilty tools and can be directly translated to DVE.

The source code, installation instructions and manuals are available online:

LTSmin is currently being developed by the Formal Methods and Tools group at the University of Twente, The Netherlands.

The previous release was LTSmin 1.1.
