Products compliant to obsolete versions of the standard

Changing the OpenMI Standard has major implications for both OpenMI developers and users. Unfortunately, it is impossible to make such changes backward compatible. Consequently, when a new OpenMI Standard is released, all model providers must upgrade their models to stay compliant with the latest OpenMI version. The pace at which this happens varies from model provider to model provider, since many model providers only make new releases of their software products on a six month or yearly basis. Hence, after an OpenMI Standard release it can often take a year before the bulk of compliant models are upgraded to the new version. This has implication for the OpenMI users, as they may find that the models they want to use for linked configurations are not compliant to the same OpenMI versions. For this reason, a very conservative release strategy for the OpenMI standard has been adopted.

The models listed below were compliant to OpenMI standard versions prior to version 1.4, and as such are no longer regarded as formally OpenMI compliant. However, some of them may have been migrated to 1.4 or 2.0 since, in which case the provider did not submit an xml-file with the compliance info.

So, if you are interested in using some of these models as OpenMI compliant component it may be worth contacting the software provider to check if there are any plans for upgrading.
