130 ----------
131
132 Version 0.9.5.112
133
134 Solver interface
135 - all solvers and integrators are now built as 'external library' DLL/SOs.
136 - new ASCENDSOLVERS environment variable gives additional search path location
137 that is checked when attempting to satisfy IMPORT statements.
138 - Fixed behaviour scons when lex/yacc not available.
139 - Many ASC_DLLSPEC qualifiers added as result of the expanded use of external
140 libraries.
141
142 Solvers
143 - CONOPT no longer needs to be present at buildtime. This was possible due
144 to permission from Arne Drud to add the 'conopt.h' file to our source code.
145 - BLAS and LINPACK are now embedded in the LSODE DLL/SO. They are not
146 part of libascend, which makes the main DLL about 1 MB smaller.
147 - Some bugs in the DOPRI5 integrator identified (full testing still not
148 completed).
149 - placeholder for a future TRON solver (work still to do on that)
150 - work underway on the IPOPT optimisation solver.
151
152 Model library
153 - Equations of state models from Krishnan.
154 - Added ASCEND port of the standard GAMS example problem.
155
156 Windows installer
157 - Added ability to download and install missing dependencies. This
158 makes getting started with ASCEND much simpler for new users.
159 - Added the user's manual (in PDF form) to the installer package.
160
161 RPM package
162 - A SUNDIALS RPM package has been submitted for inclusion in Fedora, making
163 installation of ASCEND possible with a single download on that distro.
164 - RPM divided into subpackages ascend, ascend-devel, ascend-doc.
165 - Other work on building RPMs for a range of Linux platforms using
166 the new OpenSUSE Build Service.
167
168 DEB package
