158 ----------
159
160 Version 0.9.5.112
161
162 Solver interface
163 - all solvers and integrators are now built as 'external library' DLL/SOs.
164 - new ASCENDSOLVERS environment variable gives additional search path location
165 that is checked when attempting to satisfy IMPORT statements.
166 - Fixed behaviour scons when lex/yacc not available.
167 - Many ASC_DLLSPEC qualifiers added as result of the expanded use of external
168 libraries.
169
170 Solvers
171 - CONOPT no longer needs to be present at buildtime. This was possible due
172 to permission from Arne Drud to add the 'conopt.h' file to our source code.
173 - BLAS and LINPACK are now embedded in the LSODE DLL/SO. They are not
174 part of libascend, which makes the main DLL about 1 MB smaller.
175 - Some bugs in the DOPRI5 integrator identified (full testing still not
176 completed).
177 - placeholder for a future TRON solver (work still to do on that)
178 - work underway on the IPOPT optimisation solver.
179
180 Model library
181 - Equations of state models from Krishnan.
182 - Added ASCEND port of the standard GAMS example problem.
183
184 Windows installer
185 - Added ability to download and install missing dependencies. This
186 makes getting started with ASCEND much simpler for new users.
187 - Added the user's manual (in PDF form) to the installer package.
188
189 RPM package
190 - A SUNDIALS RPM package has been submitted for inclusion in Fedora, making
191 installation of ASCEND possible with a single download on that distro.
192 - RPM divided into subpackages ascend, ascend-devel, ascend-doc.
193 - Other work on building RPMs for a range of Linux platforms using
194 the new OpenSUSE Build Service.
195
196 DEB package
197 - Fixed.
