All along year 2012, the Thermo Special Interest Group (SIG) has worked on further clarifications of the document describing the Thermodynamic and Physical Properties interface specification in version 1.1. After a thorough review process, the corresponding “Errata and Clarifications” document has been presented to CO-LaN Management Board for authorization of public release.

The authorization has been granted on December 13, 2012 and the document can be found within the page dedicated to the specification.

Clarifications are related to the expected behaviour of a Property Package Manager, to the frequency of calls to SetMaterial method, to the request bubble and dew point calculations, to the behaviour of a Material Object around a CalcEquilibrium call, to the order of specifications in a CalcEquilibrium call, to the recommended use of CheckEquilibriumSpec and to the interpretation of UNDEFINED as a CapeString.

All developers should take a look at the Errata and Clarifications in addition to the full specification document.
