CO-LaN is conducting interoperability tests between software products implementing CAPE-OPEN interfaces. These tests are performed on computers owned by CO-LaN. Software vendors provide CO-LaN with free-of-charge licenses and in return receive reports on the tests performed, enabling them to improve if needed their implementation of CAPE-OPEN interfaces.

Infochem Computer Services Ltd. has renewed the MultiFlash license given free-of-charge to CO-LaN for conducting interoperability tests. This extends to December 31, 2008 the previous license. CO-LaN thanks Infochem for this.
