159 jpye 1336
160 jpye 1522 Version 0.9.5.112
161    
162     Solver interface
163     - all solvers and integrators are now built as 'external library' DLL/SOs.

172     to permission from Arne Drud to add the 'conopt.h' file to our source code.
173 jpye 1522 - BLAS and LINPACK are now embedded in the LSODE DLL/SO. They are not
174     part of libascend, which makes the main DLL about 1 MB smaller.

176     completed).

193 jpye 1572 - Other work on building RPMs for a range of Linux platforms using
