4DIAC is a framework for distributed industrial automation and control. It aims to provide an open, IEC-61499-compliant basis that lets the user establish a distributed industrial automation and control environment based on the targets' portability, configurability, and interoperability.
The main contribution of this release is the improvement of the overall stability and usability of 4DIAC-IDE and FORTE. All in all, this release incorporates the fixes and implementations of more than 84 issues. Additionally, it enhances support for the generic data types (i.e., ANY_INT, ANY_ELEMENTARY, etc.). The biggest news, though, is that the 4DIAC framework now supports all of the IEC 61131-3 Functions and Function Blocks as IEC 61499 Function Blocks. Of course, the IEC 61131-3 Functions are also available for use in Structured Text algorithms.
