Dear All,
Syn 1.0.0 has been released. This is mainly a version bump from 0.10.1,
since it has successfully been running in production for months now.

For those of you who don't know what Syn is: Syn (short for synonym) is a
global process registry that has the following features:

   - Global (i.e. a process is uniquely identified with a Key across all
   the nodes of a cluster).
   - Any term can be used as Key.
   - Fast writes.
   - Automatically handles conflict resolution (such as net splits).
   - Configurable callbacks.
   - Processes are automatically monitored and removed from the registry if
   they die.

You can find Syn here:

Also, please note that Process Groups (which also enable PubSub mechanisms)
have been implemented on a dedicated branch:

AFAIK this branch is currently being tested in N2O [1], and it's there to
collect feedback from anyone interested before it gets merged in.

Thank you,
