Announcing OSVVM™ 2016.11
2016.11a is a minor release. The only file that changed is VendorCovApiPkg_Aldec.vhd. There was a bug in one of the attributes that has been fixed and verified.
VendorCovApiPKg simplifies the connection between OSVVM functional coverage a vendor’s internal functional coverage database. The operation of the API is simple. Within OSVVM, all calls to create a functional coverage model (AddBins and AddCross) and record coverage (ICover) are forwarded to a simulator via VendorCovApiPkg. The simulator can use these calls to create an internal version of the functional coverage model and record the coverage.
VendorCovApiPkg_Aldec.vhd works with Riviera-PRO 2016.10. Aldec anticipates that the next release of Active-HDL will support VendorCovApiPkg_Aldec.vhd.
The heart of VendorCovApiPkg is covered in two pages of VendorCovApiPkg_user_guide.pdf.

There will be a patch release for VendorCovApiPkg_Aldec.vhd in 2016.11. I have pushed a candidate fix into the master branch of GitHub. I will be testing the candidate fix this week and release 2016.11a hopefully before 12/19.
Note, currently the only simulator that needs to use this package is RivieraPro 2016.10 release and the package in the RivierPro release will work fine with the other files in the OSVVM 2016.11 release.
