These are the release notes of FSAP/NuSMV-SA 0.9.9, code name Tornado.
Old Release Notes
This release of the FSAP platform delivers full support for the definition of hypotheses for the Analysis Tasks and an improved version of the GSRL. It also addresses some usability issues and finally fixes some bugs.
In detail, the major improvements are:
Analysis Task Hypothesis: users can specify constraints for each Analysis Task, thus achieving a more fine-grained control over the execution of the AT. Constraints are defined in the "Hypotheses" tab of the Analysis Task dialog in the form of NuSMV invariants formulae. Hypotheses are saved into the SAT and their definition can take advantage of the "Data Dictionary" and "SMV Keypad" facilities.
GSRL: a new version of the library of patterns has been defined.
SM and ESM filenames truncated: the buffer for storing the names of the SM and ESM within the SAT has been extended to 1K. This removes a bug related to the platform being unable to store very long pathnames.
Comments in the ESM: during model extension, comments are removed from the ESM. This is a work-around to the problem related to the positioning of code extensions in the ESM. Notice that a more structural approach to the problem requires to extend the syntax on NuSMV.
Results directory content: the directory for storing the results of the Analysis now gets cleaned before each run (with the exception of the Ordering Analysis case).
The main features of the FSAP/NuSMV-SA platform are:
Support for SAT XML format
Full support to GFML (Generic Failure Mode Library): failure modes can be defined in the GFML, used from FSAP, and automatically injected into the model.
Full support to GSRL (Generic Safety Requirements Library): safety patterns can be defined in the GSRL, used from FSAP, and loaded at the user request.
Analysis task manager
Automatic model extension.
Possibility of defining custom failures directly into the system model.
Highlighting of changes: parts of the SAT that are changed appear in red.
Quick search of Safety Requirements and Failure Modes.
Integration with NuSMV-SA.
Result Displayer, for accessing in an integrated way all the results of the analyses.
Fault Tree Displayer, that reads files in Fault Tree Plus tabular format.
Viewer of traces in tabular and graphical form (through GnuPlot).
Monotonic and non-monotonic fault tree construction
Generation of traces for each minimal cut set of a fault tree
Ordering analysis on minimal cut sets
Construction of fault trees, generation of traces, ordering analysis, simulation, and verification of properties are integrated with FSAP.
All NuSMV2 commands available from textual interface

FSAP/NuSMV-SA is cross-platform and pre-compiled binaries are available for the following platforms:
Win32: MS Windows NT, MS Windows 2000, MS Windows XP
Lin: Linux RedHat 7.0.
In order to correctly run FSAP/NuSMV-SA on Windows, the following tools are needed:
Cygwin (cygwin1.dll and GCC c preprocessor - included in Cygwin)
Gnuplot for Windows (for graphing counter examples).
Windows Platforms. Installation procedure on Windows platform uses the standard approach.
Download the relevant FSAP-Setup.exe file from the Download page.
Double click on FSAP-Setup.exe and follow the instructions.
(The procedure assumes the required tools to be already installed on the system.)
Unix Platforms. The only *nix platform for which we provide pre-compiled binaries is Red Hat Linux. Compiled versions for other *nix like systems are available on demand.
Download the relevant .zip file from the Download page.
Unzip the package in a directory of your choice.
