Second public comment period on the draft AIAA standard opened Nov. 15 and will end Dec. 29. In this version, DAVE-ML is a reference, not an included Annex.
October 2010
Added a new utility, ModelSweeper, to the DAVEtools distribution .jar. Provides ability to view a 3D surface representing an output from a DAVE-ML model while two inputs are varied; other inputs are held constant.
Also fixed a bug in the DAVEtools parser.
May 2010
Tweak to the reference manual (found on the DTD page).

July 2006
An AERO-ML workshop is planned for next month's AIAA Modeling and Simulation conference in Keystone, Colorado.
December 2005
A separate Committee on Modeling Standards has been formed by the AIAA; the initial meeting was December 1 in Orlando in conjunction with I/ITSEC conference.
October 2005
The Standards subcommittee of the AIAA Modeling and Simulation Technical Committee is pursuing to have a portion of DAVE-ML, specifically the aero model application, be published as an AIAA standard. It is tenatively named "AeroML."
August 2005
A two-hour workshop at the 2005 AIAA M&ST conference went into details on the DAVE-ML syntax.
