It is a great pleasure for us to announce the feature freeze phase for the upcoming 4DIAC release 1.7. In order to support testing and give you a sneak preview of the cool new features (e.g., monitoring of composite function blocks) we created a first release candidate 1.6_RC1. The highlights of the upcoming release are:
Monitoring of Composite Function Blocks
Support for the PFC 200 PLC from WAGO
Performance and memory usage improvements in FORTE
As a part of the seminar series organized by the Bavarian Mechatronics & Automation Cluster, the 4DIAC member fortiss offers a course introducing the IEC 61499 standard. The full-day course (in German) will be held on March 10th in Munich. It will give an overview of the models defined in IEC 61499 and how to apply them to the development of distributed automation and control systems. Further details and registration information can be found on the <a onclick="window.open('http://','popup',...
In the recent years the development process of 4DIAC has become quite in-transparent. In order to overcome this situation we resurrect the 4DIAC Roadmap Page. Furthermore, to allow all 4DIAC users to better participate in the planning we created an own forum for discussing the current and future 4DIAC development plans, which can be found here.
We are proud to announce the second maintenance release for 4DIAC 1.6 providing a set of bug fixes to 4DIAC-IDE (8), FORTE (1), and the 4DIAC Systems (1). Because of some technical problems with Sourceforge's release system this maintenance release got delayed about one and a half week. We are very sorry for this inconvenience.
