82 ----------
83
84 Version 0.9.5.112
85
86 Solver interface
87 - all solvers and integrators are now built as 'external library' DLL/SOs.
88 - new ASCENDSOLVERS environment variable gives additional search path location
89 that is checked when attempting to satisfy IMPORT statements.
90 - Fixed behaviour scons when lex/yacc not available.
91 - Many ASC_DLLSPEC qualifiers added as result of the expanded use of external
92 libraries.
93
94 Solvers
95 - CONOPT no longer needs to be present at buildtime. This was possible due
96 to permission from Arne Drud to add the 'conopt.h' file to our source code.
97 - BLAS and LINPACK are now embedded in the LSODE DLL/SO. They are not
98 part of libascend, which makes the main DLL about 1 MB smaller.
99 - Some bugs in the DOPRI5 integrator identified (full testing still not
100 completed).
101 - placeholder for a future TRON solver (work still to do on that)
102 - work underway on the IPOPT optimisation solver.
103
104 Model library
105 - Equations of state models from Krishnan.
106 - Added ASCEND port of the standard GAMS example problem.
107
108 Windows installer
109 - Added ability to download and install missing dependencies. This
110 makes getting started with ASCEND much simpler for new users.
111 - Added the user's manual (in PDF form) to the installer package.
112
113 RPM package
114 - A SUNDIALS RPM package has been submitted for inclusion in Fedora, making
115 installation of ASCEND possible with a single download on that distro.
116 - RPM divided into subpackages ascend, ascend-devel, ascend-doc.
117 - Other work on building RPMs for a range of Linux platforms using
118 the new OpenSUSE Build Service.
119
120 DEB package
121 - Fixed.
