47 ----------
48
49 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 - 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 - 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 - 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 - Equations of state models from Krishnan.
71 - Added ASCEND port of the standard GAMS example problem.
72
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
78 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 - RPM divided into subpackages ascend, ascend-devel, ascend-doc.
82 - Other work on building RPMs for a range of Linux platforms using
83 the new OpenSUSE Build Service.
84
85 DEB package
86 - Fixed.
