The CAPE-OPEN Logging and Testing Tool (COLTT) is an open-source project run by CO-LaN since several years now. COLTT is widely used by developers to understand the interaction between CAPE-OPEN PMCs and PMEs. Michael Halloran is contracted by CO-LaN to pursue the development and the maintenance of COLTT.

In order to define the developments to be made in the next version of COLTT, the document describing the roadmap for COLTT has been updated to version 4.0 and its release has been authorized by CO-LaN Management Board.

Reference counting is among the new features that are considered for the upcoming new versions.
