Mibble 2.6 was release on 2005-12-10 containing this fix.

The IMPLIED keyword is now parsed and a flag is set in the new SnmpIndex class. This breaks backward compability of the API for code using the SnmpObjectType.getIndex() method.

This fix will be in version 2.6.

It is the keyword IMPLIED that is ignored, not IMPLICIT (which is used for type tags).

The IMPLICIT keyword is sometimes used in table indices to indicate that it should not be encoded by using variable-length encoding. The Mibble MIB parser currently silently ignores the IMPLICIT keyword making it impossible to retrieve this information.

When implementing this, care must be taken not to break the current API. Instead one or more new methods must be added to allow checking if the IMPLICIT flag was set for one or more INDEX variables.
