OpenModelica 1.6 Release – Open Source Cyber-Physical Modeling and Simulation

OPENMODELICA IS AN OPEN-SOURCE model-based cyber-physical mathematical modeling, architectural description and simulation environment intended for industrial and academic usage. Its long-term development is supported by a non-profit organization – the Open Source Modelica Consortium (OSMC)
This OpenModelica 1.6 release primarily contains model analysis/flattening, simulation, and performance improvements regarding the multi-domain Modelica Standard Library 3.1 support, but also has an interesting new tool – the OMEdit graphic connection editor, a new educational material called DrControl for teaching control systems with Modelica, and an improved ModelicaML UML/Modelica profile with better support for cyber-physical modeling and requirement handling (see also, and the ITEA2 OPENPROD project
There is an also an opportunity to learn more about these technologies by participating in the OpenModelica and MODPROD workshops February 7-9 2011 on model-based development and OpenModelica tool and application issues, see and, including the following talks:

This OpenModelica 1.6 release includes the following improvements compared to the 1.5 release:
