    Some of you (if you're still out there) might be interested in a new project that is a continuation of this project.  We have been working with Venkat's last release source base for the past 5 months, and will be posting a version (called P3/COBOL) as soon as I have sorted out the various license issues.  It will be licensed under GPLv3.

    P3/COBOL currently runs all of the CCVS NC, IC, IF, SM, and IX tests  (about 6,000) correctly (minus a few I ignore).  There are many extensions that have been added from RM/COBOL, the 2002 standard, and the 201x draft standard.  There are also some extensions unique to P3/COBOL.  It has successfully compiled some very complex generated programs as well as very large (over 100,000 lines of COBOL) ones.

    I will post a notice here when I post the first distribution on the P3/COBOL project, or you can monitor that project directly, if you are interested.

    Regards,
    John

    John,

    Is there any status on this new project?  How will it be licensed?  RES is quiet an impressive body of work, I look forward to seeing it move forward.
