This release creates a final checkpoint for older codes which will be subsequently removed:
(i) reduced modelling (POD);
(ii) spontaneous potentials (and associated test), which is a part of the porous media framework;
(iii) the old solid-fluid coupling code and associated ALE mesh movement (and associated test).
Any Fluidity users needing these, or needing any porous media or implicit solids codes, should clone from this release.
This release also contains all new features/fixes since 4.1.14.
This release marks a supporting software change from VTK5-only to VTK5/VTK6 dual support. The release is required to deal with upgraded packages in the Fluidity binary distributions, which need release to support VTK6.
Note that VTK6 support is currently tested on CentOS 6 and Ubuntu 16.04.
As of this release, formal support for Intel compilers is no longer provided due to ongoing problems with Intel Fortran compilers. Fluidity is only supported building with gcc/g++/gfortran.
This is a release of Fluidity made for the November 2015 training course, tested with Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, CentOS 6, and CentOS 7. Additionally, Fluidity is tested with the Intel 2015 compiler (on a customised RHEL6 system).
This will be the final release of Fluidity supporting PETSc earlier than 3.6.1; users limited to older versions of PETSc should hold on this release.
This is a release of Fluidity made for the November 2014 training course. It contains changes since November 2013, key updates including reinstatement of Intel compiler support; Fluidity now formally supports Intel 2015 compilers and some late-version 2014 compilers. Support is also now in place for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.5 alongside Ubuntu LTS versions. All of the above are regularly tested within our buildbot framework.
Other changes include bug fixes to the detector code, and added support for PETSc 3.5.
There remains a pending bug fix not included in this release for Zoltan problems on some systems.
