1 jpye 1572 4 Aug 2007
2     ----------
3 jpye 1336
4 jpye 1522 Version 0.9.5.112
5    
6     Solver interface
7     - all solvers and integrators are now built as 'external library' DLL/SOs.
8     - new ASCENDSOLVERS environment variable gives additional search path location
9     that is checked when attempting to satisfy IMPORT statements.
10 jpye 1542 - Fixed behaviour scons when lex/yacc not available.
11 jpye 1522 - RPM packaging tested with openSUSE build service, RPM divided into
12     subpackages ascend, ascend-devel, ascend-doc.
13 jpye 1542 - Many ASC_DLLSPEC qualifiers added as result of the expanded use of external
14     libraries.
15    
16     Solvers
17     - CONOPT no longer needs to be present at buildtime. This was possible due
18     to permission from Arne Drud to add the 'conopt.h' file to our source code.
19 jpye 1522 - BLAS and LINPACK are now embedded in the LSODE DLL/SO. They are not
20     part of libascend, which makes the main DLL about 1 MB smaller.
21     - Some bugs in the DOPRI5 integrator identified (full testing still not
22     completed).
23 jpye 1542 - placeholder for a future TRON solver (work still to do on that)
24     - work underway on the IPOPT optimisation solver.
25    
26     Model library
27 jpye 1522 - Equations of state models from Krishnan.
28 jpye 1542 - Added ASCEND port of the standard GAMS example problem.
29 jpye 1572
30     Windows installer
31     - Added ability to download and install missing dependencies. This
32     makes getting started with ASCEND much simpler for new users.
33     - Added the user's manual (in PDF form) to the installer package.
34 jpye 1522
35 jpye 1572 RPM package
36     - A SUNDIALS RPM package has been submitted for inclusion in Fedora, making
37     installation of ASCEND possible with a single download on that distro.
38     - Other work on building RPMs for a range of Linux platforms using
39     the new OpenSUSE Build Service.
40    
41 jpye 1579 DEB package
42     - Fixed.
