OpenChrom was created to resolve the constraints of accessing, managing, and representing mass spectral data (as well as accessing the algorithms used to process the data) from propriety closed systems, typically limited to certain software platforms. Version 0.1.0, the first public release, became available on April 12, 2010. In August, OpenChrom won additional funds to continue development via the Thomas Krenn Open Source Förderung competition. OpenChrom won another award on March 21, 2011, in the form of The Eclipse Foundation's award for "Best RCP Application."
