U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (represented by Bill BARRETT), AmsterCHEM (represented by Jasper van BATEN), Bryan Research & Engineering (represented by Michael HLAVINKA), Michel PONS (contractor to CO-LaN as Chief Technology Officer).


A new version (2.1.1) of the distribution of the CAPE-OPEN Type Libraries / Primary Interop Assemblies was released by CO-LaN on July 31, 2021. An analysis of the support tickets considered as active was made today in order to close as many tickets as possible. Three tickets, opened after the July 31 release, were left as active with solutions defined:

  • Ticket 27: an event entry is missing in the IDL defining Flowsheet Monitoring
  • Ticket 28: missing resource version on PIA 1.1
  • Ticket 29: to ensure current user installer works to its end, two public properties should be made private .

A new release of the distribution of the CAPE-OPEN Type Libraries / Primary Interop Assemblies resolving the above issues will be targeted once budget for it has been secured.
