15 ----------
16
17 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 - 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 - 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 - 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 - Equations of state models from Krishnan.
39 - Added ASCEND port of the standard GAMS example problem.
40
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
46 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 - RPM divided into subpackages ascend, ascend-devel, ascend-doc.
50 - Other work on building RPMs for a range of Linux platforms using
51 the new OpenSUSE Build Service.
52
53 DEB package
54 - Fixed.
