Reporting period: January 1 – March 31, 2009 (Q1 2009)

Version 0.1 of geniwrapper is now running “live” on PLC. It provides an alternative interface that is currently being used only for testing and evaluation (i.e., we have do not yet expect general usage). It is also running on VINI central, and the two are federated via a common Slice Manager.

II. Description of work performed during last quarter

A. Activities and findings
