General questions about EMPHYSIS and eFMI

When will eFMI 1.0.0 be released?

EMPHYSIS partners have sent an application to the Modelica Association to form a Modelica Project eFMI. Once founded, the new eFMI group will try to quickly release the eFMI specification as Modelica Association standard. A concrete release date is not yet known.

What will be the license and usage conditions for the planned eFMI standard?

Access and use of the eFMI standard will be free of charge.

To be clear: While the eFMI standard will be open and free, commercial tool support might not be.
