OVSD 5.x custom fields for "CI Relation Type"

Hello,
As far as I know, OVSD 4.5 does not allow creation of custom fields for "CI relation type" item. This is one of the desired feature to capture any additional information about the related items.
I heard that OVSD 5.x might allow for creation of custom fields for CI relationships. Has any one found this feature?

Bhuvnesh,

With SP 17 OVSD 4.5 allows for the creation of so-called "generic" relations, between any two items. Unlike the CI relations, these relations have two extra text fields which allow you to capture additional information about the relation - one field for each direction of the relation.

This new feature might be useful to you.

Hi Josh,

Thanks for this information. I will try checking this.
Since our requirement is to have some code fields along with text fields, I guess this partially solves the problem.
I would still like to know if any one has found anything better in 5.0 or read about any such feature in coming versions (5.x).
