FLAMES 10.0 Released

Huntsville, AL – November 29, 2011 – Ternion Corporation is pleased to announce the release of FLAMES, version 10.0. Users will find this new version both easier to use and more powerful, and developers will be able to add more custom capability with even less effort.

FLAMES 10.0 Main Enhancements:

Enhanced User Interface

Ternion rewrote the ENTIRE low-level graphical user interface (GUI) subsystem of FLAMES to be based on Qt, an open-source, cross-platform application and user interface framework. This was a massive undertaking, and it lays the foundation for future changes that are planned for the FLAMES GUI.

Command Editor Enhancements

The Command Editor of the Units window now supports adding, removing, and reordering commands above the START command. This gives users additional control over the configuration and behavior of a Unit through the extremely friendly and fully-customizable user interface provided by the Command Editor.

Enhanced Analysis Improvements

The Enhanced Analysis Option settings now allows users to specify the run number to be used while a scenario is edited and executed in FORGE. This gives users a simple way to change the values that are assigned to scenario variables in FORGE.

XML Database Format

All text-based dataset files in the FLAMES Scenario Database are now written, by default, in Extensible Markup Language (XML) format.

New Commands

Several new commands are now supported by the bundled cognition models. These commands take advantage of the new ability to fully edit definition commands and give users more control over configuring the behavior of a Unit.

Enhancements to C++ Development

FLAMES has provided support for custom component development in both C and C++ for many years, and FLAMES will continue to support development in both languages. However, in version 10.0, sweeping changes were made to FLAMES to provide improved support for development in C++.

See the What’s New section of the FLAMES documentation for additional details on these and the other enhancements included in version 10.0.

Free runtime copies of FLAMES, version 10.0 are available by request.

Customers with active software maintenance will receive version 10.0 upon request at no additional cost. Please contact customer support to make your request.
