What do you plan for future versions?

I am planning on an advanced fully compliant 2.3 version of the library. Version 3.0 is an object passing model, possibly based on XML, but I don't know how soon I will be able to implement a compliant 3.0 library. I may need to see one of these interfaces in action first.

Do you do custom interface work?

I will do custom HL7 interface programming, remotely, for a fee. Please send me e-mail and I will contact you for the details.
