Howl is dead. Long live Howl.

If you're looking at this page, chances are you're trying to find a little 'ol Zeroconf implementation called Howl. Sadly, Howl is no longer actively developed by Porchdog Software or anyone else and you'll have to look elsewhere. Happily, you have some good selections to chose from these days. The dogs over here suggest you first have a look at Apple's Bonjour. Bonjour runs on Mac OS X, Windows, *NIXes of assorted shapes and sizes, and VxWorks. It's great software, developed by some really gifted engineers, and we think you'll find it very easy to incorporate in your next world beating application.

If you're a *NIX person, you might want to take a peek at Avahi. We don't know too much about it, but it's getting a lot of uptake in the Zeroconf community and the guy who develops it is pretty sharp.

So that's about it for now. Thanks for the fun ride. We had a ball and look forward to having you join us for our next adventure.
