Changelog openfunds Fields Version 0.88 (Beta)

General Notes

  • Changed all percentage figures to decimal figures rounded to 7 digits after decimal point.
  • Fields with comma separated values that might contain commas itself changed to be separated with pipes “|”
  • In general, openfunds uses lower case for values, i.e. “yes” / “no” / “unknown”. However, implementations of interfaces based on the openfunds standard should not be case sensitive as many existing systems use a different diction.

Deleted Fields

Generally openfunds will never delete any fields, but will mark them as “//No longer supported…//”. As an exception of this rule, we have deleted the following three fields:

  • OFST 350200: CS Fund Category
  • OFST 351100: Fundinfo Classification Sub-class
  • OFST 351200: Fundinfo Classification – Investment Style

Therefore, these fields will no longer be published in the openfunds lists starting from version 0.88 onwards. In order to avoid mixing up data, we are not going to use the data-IDs of these fields for new openfunds fields.
