What is the current situation of the second part of the Hilbert 16th problem? What are the most updated news on this problem?

1$\begingroup$ (from wikipedia) the second part is: The determination of the upper bound for the number of limit cycles in twodimensional polynomial vector fields of degree $n$ and an investigation of their relative positions $\endgroup$ – YCor Sep 16 '18 at 21:00

$\begingroup$ @Ycor Thank you for adding the tag "limit cycle"! $\endgroup$ – Ali Taghavi Sep 16 '18 at 21:00

$\begingroup$ @YCor and also adding the wikipedia link and editting the title. $\endgroup$ – Ali Taghavi Sep 16 '18 at 21:01

2$\begingroup$ Shall we play update the title to optimize the English? “Updated Background on Hilbert’s 16th Problem”? $\endgroup$ – Anthony Quas Sep 16 '18 at 23:09

$\begingroup$ @AnthonyQuas Thanks for your comment. Do you have a suggestion for revision of the title? $\endgroup$ – Ali Taghavi Sep 17 '18 at 20:55
An update from April 2018 is given by Patrick Speissegger.
The idea, going back to Poincaré, is to reduce the twodimensional counting problem (counting limit cycles in the plane) to a onedimensional counting problem (counting certain points on a line). Roussarie (1998) showed that Hilbert’s 16th problem follows if a certain "finite cyclicity conjecture" holds. A tameness condition called "ominimality" allows to reformulate Roussarie's conjecture as a conjecture of ominimality. Speissegger discusses special cases where ominimality can be proven and proposes this approach as a promising way to prove Hilbert's 16th problem.
