The new version 1.0.5 of the distributed programming
language Hello is available at http://www.amsdec.com.

Here are the enhancements, compared to the previous

1. Expanded and fixed Hello Programming Guide, White
Paper, and Language Overview.
2. Network traffic protection described in section 8.1.3
of the Programming Guide allows for hosts to exchange
requests and responses encrypted with symmetric passwords.
Data encryption is controlled from Hello packages.
3. Now Hello host can run as a strict server (cannot
connect to other hosts), strict client (no other host can
connect to it) or a standalone program (strict server and
client at the same time).
4. New flags to control Hello engine's UNIX group
membership and controlling terminal.
5. Fine-grained automatic memory allocation algorithms
allow for using engine's process heap memory instead of
partition memory, thus increasing the total pool of the
available dynamic memory.
6. Hello engines now limit the amount of process heap
memory, and provide partition overflows in case that limit
is reached.
7. Event processing allows for better and more precise
handling of timed out events.
8. Arrays can be resized in place.
9. Many bugs fixed, performance improved.

In addition, Hello has been used to develop the
distributed data store CRYPTOMOVE freely available from
