[zeromq-dev] Bitcoin still using ZMQ?

The readme says "OZ runs on Linux (CentOS 6 and above)". Does OZ support other Linux distros besides CentOS? Would it work on Ubuntu for example? Is that being worked on?

Hi Benjamin:

I don’t know about Bitcoin, but you may be interested to know that my company has gone public with our open-source middleware implementation using ZeroMQ called OZ, which can be found here: https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__github.com_nyfix_OZ&d=DwIGaQ&c=cxWN2QSDopt5SklNfbjIjg&r=_CPgjyivOu3pukTS1ZDJHPS_XO7ekx65v2ipCHCSXkc&m=CSS6FA6GChMlo7vYcVTD9AHoCKH_3ICV9jQTYvEAtG0&s=VmGBkS0PAGj0oRxtlAN3FjW2jR-OMuNbtPfkKr-ZKhY&e= .  OZ has been used to power the NYFIX Marketplace, which is the world’s largest FIX network, since early March of this year in the US, Europe and Asia.

I also authored a white-paper where we discussed the implementation, which can be found here:  https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__www.itiviti.com_insights_what-2Dthe-2Dheck-2Dis-2Dmiddleware-2Danyway&d=DwIGaQ&c=cxWN2QSDopt5SklNfbjIjg&r=_CPgjyivOu3pukTS1ZDJHPS_XO7ekx65v2ipCHCSXkc&m=CSS6FA6GChMlo7vYcVTD9AHoCKH_3ICV9jQTYvEAtG0&s=5q-z52qwfAEToBU5EwXQgKd9hY1mWVZCkuAHzXkcQto&e= .

Hope you find this interesting and/or useful.
