Can anyone give me any idea if and when OpenCobol 1.1 is likely to be released on UBUNTU. The version that comes with Ubuntu does not have many of the commands available such as TRIM, WHEN-COMPILED and numerous other features in 1.1.
Ubuntu 12.10 and later come with OpenCobol 1.1. It's unlikely that there will be an official package for 12.04 or earlier. Maybe you can find a PPA or backport the package for 12.10 yourself.
