1 30 Jun 2007
2 -----------
3
4 Version 0.9.5.112
5
6 DEBIAN BUILD is currently broken. When this has been corrected, this release
7 will be made.
8
9 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 - Fixed behaviour scons when lex/yacc not available.
14 - RPM packaging tested with openSUSE build service, RPM divided into
15 subpackages ascend, ascend-devel, ascend-doc.
16 - 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 - 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 - 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 - Equations of state models from Krishnan.
31 - Added ASCEND port of the standard GAMS example problem.
