As of today (October 8, 2012), Manifold Release 0.9, is available for download.
This release added a few important features:

  • Flow control between components is now supported.
  • Iris now supports request-reply networks (2 virtual networks).
  • Iris now supports single-flit packets.
  • Iris now supports simulated packet lengths.

As in the last release, this release includes a serial simulator that builds a multicore shared-memory system model with the components included in the release. The simulator has been tested with a 16-core system model on the PARSEC and SPLASH-2 benchmarks for 200 million cycles. It uses QSim as the front-end to get the instructions of the benchmarks.
