Topic: Feature Requests - No Longer being funded by JNCC
The new support contract for Recorder 6 from 1 April 2017does not include any funding for new R6 features. It does, however, include funding for bug fixes and to cover changes made by third parties (eg Microsoft, the NHM).
However, this does not stop new features being added as long as funding can be obtained elsewhere (ie users or groups of users). Also I will be willing to make some changes at no charge if they are fairly simple and in areas of the code I am comfortable with. The following factors limit what can be done
1. The R6 Steering Group needs to approve changes to the data model (ie new fields or tables).
2. Changes must be generic. (ie nothing which assumes specific data structures, spatial ref systems etc).
3. There must be sufficient funding available to pay for both the changes, testing and documentation.
Please do not let this stop you requesting new features. Requests will continue to be logged and as soon as possible some indication given on how feasible the change is and what the cost might be. Costs could be a lot less than you might think and there may not be any charge so keep the requests coming !!!.
