Thneed Digest – Week 2016 – 35

An update on what FSD knows…

Based on the latest FBRI email it looks as if the much awaited library updates are on the way.  The only word on release is “mid-September”.  No year was listed.  However, if this is true that means that the analysis has passed the Best Biometrics Practices Review Committee.  This is a required step for all library releases! While FSD did not hear a call for people to join the committee to review the analysis we are sure that it must have happened as the Board of Directors and the President have stated publicly that all libraries WILL be reviewed this way and that it doesn’t matter who did the analysis.  Also no word on the numerous reported FPS bugs.  Will they be patched at this time no one knows.  Some scheme to “protect” the library was said to be implemented in the software so it seems that priority should have been given to fixing the bugs over spending excessive amounts of time “protecting” the libraries.
