We made another significant announcement during the Member Meeting: the general availability of the FDC3 2.0 Conformance Program and the introduction of the new class of FDC3-compatible Desktop Agents. This development expands our offerings to a total of nine software products across FDC3 1.2 and 2.0. The FDC3 1.2 Conformance Program is completely open source and developed with the support of Scott Logic. To learn more, read the full press release here.
We're delighted to announce the release of version 4.0 of the Common Domain Model (CDM). This significant milestone represents a major advancement for the project.
