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