TPTP Project To Be Archived

There’s bad news for TPTP (Test and Performance Tools Platform)
fans, as the team announced that TPTP 4.7 will be the last major release from the project. They will
participate in the Helios services releases, so users can expect
TPTP 4.7.1 for Helios SR1 and TPTP 4.7.2 for Helios SR2, but the
project will not be a part of Indigo. After the release of TPTP
4.7.2 in February 2011, the project will be archived, in accordance
to the Eclipse archiving project. TPTP provides an open platform,

on creating a platform for Equinox based server applications.

Instance comes with a pair of NVIDIA Tesla M2050 “Fermi” GPUs, 22
GB of RAM and 10 Gbps Ethernet.
