PMSF joins FMI Advisory Committee

PMSF IT Consulting is proud to announce its elevation to the Advisory Committee of the Modelica Association Project Functional Mock-up Interface.

In addition to our participation as a founding member of the Modelica Association Project System Structure and Parameterization we see this engagement as a core part of our strategy for standards-based integration of simulation platforms across the spectrum of customer domains, especially in light of new challenges like autonomous driving, hybrid vehicles and safety relevant aspects of systems development.

New MD5 release 2.0.3

A new patch release 2.0.3 of the MD5 implementation for Common Lisp has been released, which includes support for md5sum-string for as yet unsupported Lisp implementations through flexi-streams. This enhancement was supplied by Daniel Kochmanski. The new release is available from its PMSF page, and its GitHub home.

Note that MD5 has been cryptographically broken, and should therefore not be used in situations where a cryptographically secure hash function is needed (you might want to consider using our implementation of SHA-3 in those situations instead). However due to its wide historical use and its remaining suitability in non-cryptographically secure settings, this implementation is still of some interest.
