8 calculator using MBWR and Helmholtz correlations.

10 - Added 'dtar' utility to facility quick building of DEB packages from
11 source code tarball plus debian.tar.gz file.

87 ----------
88
89 Version 0.9.5.112
90
91 Solver interface
92 - all solvers and integrators are now built as 'external library' DLL/SOs.
93 - new ASCENDSOLVERS environment variable gives additional search path location
94 that is checked when attempting to satisfy IMPORT statements.
95 - Fixed behaviour scons when lex/yacc not available.
96 - Many ASC_DLLSPEC qualifiers added as result of the expanded use of external
97 libraries.
98
99 Solvers
100 - CONOPT no longer needs to be present at buildtime. This was possible due
101 to permission from Arne Drud to add the 'conopt.h' file to our source code.
102 - BLAS and LINPACK are now embedded in the LSODE DLL/SO. They are not
103 part of libascend, which makes the main DLL about 1 MB smaller.
104 - Some bugs in the DOPRI5 integrator identified (full testing still not
105 completed).
106 - placeholder for a future TRON solver (work still to do on that)
107 - work underway on the IPOPT optimisation solver.
108
109 Model library
110 - Equations of state models from Krishnan.
111 - Added ASCEND port of the standard GAMS example problem.
112
113 Windows installer
114 - Added ability to download and install missing dependencies. This
115 makes getting started with ASCEND much simpler for new users.
116 - Added the user's manual (in PDF form) to the installer package.
117
118 RPM package
119 - A SUNDIALS RPM package has been submitted for inclusion in Fedora, making
120 installation of ASCEND possible with a single download on that distro.
121 - RPM divided into subpackages ascend, ascend-devel, ascend-doc.
122 - Other work on building RPMs for a range of Linux platforms using
123 the new OpenSUSE Build Service.
124
125 DEB package
126 - Fixed.
