Throughout this time, one critical piece of the ecosystem has been missing: a complete and fully open source implementation. Today I am excited to announce that this is no longer the case, and a fully Electron based open source implementation has been contributed to FINOS, where we are expecting it to be a critical resource for the FDC3 developer community.
We're excited to announce that the FDC3 Desktop Agent is now available as a FINOS hosted project at https://github.com/finos/
The FDC3 Desktop Agent is an open source implementation of FDC3 as a Chrome Extension. Its purpose is to provide a quick and easy way for app developers to get started with the FDC3 APIs. The extension makes FDC3 directly available to any web application in Chrome and provides a default App Directory with a number of demo apps available.

The FDC3 community is delighted to announce the release of FDC3 1.1! This is the first point update to the FDC3 standard since 1.0 was released a year ago. 1.1 has been an extremely collaborative process with active contribution and input from 10 different firms and a lot of input from teams putting 1.0 into production. We especially want to give a huge thanks to all of the stakeholders who worked so hard to make this happen!
Be sure to check out the presentation that Nick Kolba, FDC3 Project Lead/Chair, gave during the FINOS virtual Meetup on April 1, 2020 below. It includes great information on FDC3 1.1.
