Updated regarding DEB build
1 4 Aug 2007
2 ----------
3
4 Version 0.9.5.112
5
6 Solver interface
7 - all solvers and integrators are now built as 'external library' DLL/SOs.
8 - new ASCENDSOLVERS environment variable gives additional search path location
9 that is checked when attempting to satisfy IMPORT statements.
10 - Fixed behaviour scons when lex/yacc not available.
11 - RPM packaging tested with openSUSE build service, RPM divided into
12 subpackages ascend, ascend-devel, ascend-doc.
13 - Many ASC_DLLSPEC qualifiers added as result of the expanded use of external
14 libraries.
15
16 Solvers
17 - CONOPT no longer needs to be present at buildtime. This was possible due
18 to permission from Arne Drud to add the 'conopt.h' file to our source code.
19 - BLAS and LINPACK are now embedded in the LSODE DLL/SO. They are not
20 part of libascend, which makes the main DLL about 1 MB smaller.
21 - Some bugs in the DOPRI5 integrator identified (full testing still not
22 completed).
23 - placeholder for a future TRON solver (work still to do on that)
24 - work underway on the IPOPT optimisation solver.
25
26 Model library
27 - Equations of state models from Krishnan.
28 - Added ASCEND port of the standard GAMS example problem.
29
30 Windows installer
31 - Added ability to download and install missing dependencies. This
32 makes getting started with ASCEND much simpler for new users.
33 - Added the user's manual (in PDF form) to the installer package.
34
35 RPM package
36 - A SUNDIALS RPM package has been submitted for inclusion in Fedora, making
37 installation of ASCEND possible with a single download on that distro.
38 - Other work on building RPMs for a range of Linux platforms using
39 the new OpenSUSE Build Service.
40
41 DEB package
42 - Fixed.
