1 jpye 1522 30 Jun 2007
2     -----------
3 jpye 1336
4 jpye 1522 Version 0.9.5.112
5    
6 jpye 1542 DEBIAN BUILD is currently broken. When this has been corrected, this release
7     will be made.
8    
9 jpye 1522 Solver interface
10     - all solvers and integrators are now built as 'external library' DLL/SOs.
11     - new ASCENDSOLVERS environment variable gives additional search path location
12     that is checked when attempting to satisfy IMPORT statements.
13 jpye 1542 - Fixed behaviour scons when lex/yacc not available.
14 jpye 1522 - RPM packaging tested with openSUSE build service, RPM divided into
15     subpackages ascend, ascend-devel, ascend-doc.
16 jpye 1542 - Many ASC_DLLSPEC qualifiers added as result of the expanded use of external
17     libraries.
18    
19     Solvers
20     - CONOPT no longer needs to be present at buildtime. This was possible due
21     to permission from Arne Drud to add the 'conopt.h' file to our source code.
22 jpye 1522 - BLAS and LINPACK are now embedded in the LSODE DLL/SO. They are not
23     part of libascend, which makes the main DLL about 1 MB smaller.
24     - Some bugs in the DOPRI5 integrator identified (full testing still not
25     completed).
26 jpye 1542 - placeholder for a future TRON solver (work still to do on that)
27     - work underway on the IPOPT optimisation solver.
28    
29     Model library
30 jpye 1522 - Equations of state models from Krishnan.
31 jpye 1542 - Added ASCEND port of the standard GAMS example problem.
