46 jpye 1580 5 Aug 2007
47 jpye 1572 ----------
48 jpye 1336
49 jpye 1522 Version 0.9.5.112
50    
51     Solver interface
52     - all solvers and integrators are now built as 'external library' DLL/SOs.
53     - new ASCENDSOLVERS environment variable gives additional search path location
54     that is checked when attempting to satisfy IMPORT statements.
55 jpye 1542 - Fixed behaviour scons when lex/yacc not available.
56     - Many ASC_DLLSPEC qualifiers added as result of the expanded use of external
57     libraries.
58    
59     Solvers
60     - CONOPT no longer needs to be present at buildtime. This was possible due
61     to permission from Arne Drud to add the 'conopt.h' file to our source code.
62 jpye 1522 - BLAS and LINPACK are now embedded in the LSODE DLL/SO. They are not
63     part of libascend, which makes the main DLL about 1 MB smaller.
64     - Some bugs in the DOPRI5 integrator identified (full testing still not
65     completed).
66 jpye 1542 - placeholder for a future TRON solver (work still to do on that)
67     - work underway on the IPOPT optimisation solver.
68    
69     Model library
70 jpye 1522 - Equations of state models from Krishnan.
71 jpye 1542 - Added ASCEND port of the standard GAMS example problem.
72 jpye 1572
73     Windows installer
74     - Added ability to download and install missing dependencies. This
75     makes getting started with ASCEND much simpler for new users.
76     - Added the user's manual (in PDF form) to the installer package.
77 jpye 1522
78 jpye 1572 RPM package
79     - A SUNDIALS RPM package has been submitted for inclusion in Fedora, making
80     installation of ASCEND possible with a single download on that distro.
81 jpye 1580 - RPM divided into subpackages ascend, ascend-devel, ascend-doc.
82 jpye 1572 - Other work on building RPMs for a range of Linux platforms using
83     the new OpenSUSE Build Service.
84    
85 jpye 1579 DEB package
86     - Fixed.
