15 jpye 1572 ----------
16 jpye 1336
17 jpye 1522 Version 0.9.5.112
18    
19     Solver interface
20     - all solvers and integrators are now built as 'external library' DLL/SOs.
21     - new ASCENDSOLVERS environment variable gives additional search path location
22     that is checked when attempting to satisfy IMPORT statements.
23 jpye 1542 - Fixed behaviour scons when lex/yacc not available.
24     - Many ASC_DLLSPEC qualifiers added as result of the expanded use of external
25     libraries.
26    
27     Solvers
28     - CONOPT no longer needs to be present at buildtime. This was possible due
29     to permission from Arne Drud to add the 'conopt.h' file to our source code.
30 jpye 1522 - BLAS and LINPACK are now embedded in the LSODE DLL/SO. They are not
31     part of libascend, which makes the main DLL about 1 MB smaller.
32     - Some bugs in the DOPRI5 integrator identified (full testing still not
33     completed).
34 jpye 1542 - placeholder for a future TRON solver (work still to do on that)
35     - work underway on the IPOPT optimisation solver.
36    
37     Model library
38 jpye 1522 - Equations of state models from Krishnan.
39 jpye 1542 - Added ASCEND port of the standard GAMS example problem.
40 jpye 1572
41     Windows installer
42     - Added ability to download and install missing dependencies. This
43     makes getting started with ASCEND much simpler for new users.
44     - Added the user's manual (in PDF form) to the installer package.
45 jpye 1522
46 jpye 1572 RPM package
47     - A SUNDIALS RPM package has been submitted for inclusion in Fedora, making
48     installation of ASCEND possible with a single download on that distro.
49 jpye 1580 - RPM divided into subpackages ascend, ascend-devel, ascend-doc.
50 jpye 1572 - Other work on building RPMs for a range of Linux platforms using
51     the new OpenSUSE Build Service.
52    
53 jpye 1579 DEB package
54     - Fixed.
