175 ----------
176
177 Version 0.9.5.112
178
179 Solver interface
180 - all solvers and integrators are now built as 'external library' DLL/SOs.

191 part of libascend, which makes the main DLL about 1 MB smaller.

209 - RPM divided into subpackages ascend, ascend-devel, ascend-doc.
210 - Other work on building RPMs for a range of Linux platforms using
211 the new OpenSUSE Build Service.
