Dec 07, 2000, 18:09 (0 Talkback[s])

"Integrated Computer Solutions, Inc. (ICS), the leading supplier of commercial OSF/Motif products and support, today announced that it had made the Motif defect database publically accessible on its Motif community website, the MotifZone (http://www.motifzone.net). This is the first open access to the Motif defect database that was previously only available to employees and consultants of The Open Group."

"The OSF/Motif toolkit is used extensively by corporate developers to create custom, mission critical applications that are not available "off-the-shelf." It is the industry standard user interface toolkit on UNIX based systems and is experiencing substantial growth in popularity on Linux as corporate developers migrate their applications, tools, and programming skills to Linux."

"ICS invested several months in reformating, hiding identities of submitters and their companies, and loading the defect reports into Bugzilla, a popular open source bug tracking system first made available by Netscape's Mozilla project. The defect database tracks problems across all releases of OSF/Motif from version 0.7 to the current Open Motif 2.1.30 release."
