As per the decision taken by CO-LaN Management Board on March 11, 2021, AmsterCHEM has now delivered several man-hours of maintenance on the deliverables of COBIA Phase II. These deliverables are in use in commercial products and CO-LaN aims at delivering high-quality software tools. In order to inform CO-LaN Management Board on the maintenance activities remaining necessary for 2021, Methods & Tools Special Interest Group reviewed today the tickets left opened.

For example (clicking on the links provided will lead you to the actual support ticket) the necessity to add a dialog to the installer package for COBIA Runtime (Ticket 31) has been restated, while the solution provided for the enhancement proposed in ticket 36 has been considered sufficient and the ticket closed. After a careful review, ticket 66 and ticket 70 will not be fixed while ticket 21 will be fixed and its resolution will provide additional information to developers on how to make use of the code generators.

As of today, a course of action for each active ticket has been defined.
