Dear Horst,

VMS port of MIDAS has been done by Jean-Pierre De Cuyper
However and since we introduced in MIDAS in last spring full support 
for 64 bits machines with the 98NOVpl2.0, the port to VMS got 
interrupted. Jean-Pierre is doing his best to debug the latest
release of MIDAS in order to get it operative also on VMS.
As soon as VMS is supported we will announce it through the
midas-announce mailing list.
