1ANUGA RELEASES ON SOURCEFORGE - Release Notes.
2
3Next release:
4Better diagnostics for timestepping. Implemented tracking of IP for data files bundled with ANUGA to ensure that all are legally OK to distribute.
5Improved logging of model runs (screen_catcher and copy_code_files).
6Refactored graphing of timeseries into extraction and plotting (see sww2timeseries and sww2cvs_gauges).
7Fixed memory issues in meshing and improved performance of least squares fitting.
8Simplified Quantity data structure.
9More validation examples.
10
11Function for automatically determining optimal smoothing parameter through cross validation.
12
13Implemented better second order approximation through the option to use edge limiters along with second order Runge-Kutta timestepping.
14This provides better accuracy in some cases (e.g. waves in deep water over long distances)
15
16Made tight_slope_limiters the default.
17
18Retired parameter beta_h
19
20Added the Okada tsunami source model
21
22time, Q = get_flow_through_cross_section(swwfile,
23                                         cross_section,
24                                         verbose=False)
25                                         p 57
26                                         
27Upgraded ANUGA to work with Python 2.5
28
29New fileboundary (stsboundary) coupling for timeseries on a list of points
30(not yet documented)
31
32Added new forcing terms for flood modelling capability (See p 51-53)
33
34!!!!!!!!!Need to incorporate list of closed tickets.

39Release Name: anuga-1.0beta_4824
4015 Nov 2007
41Removal of obsolete Python code where (faster) C code exists. Several updates in the documentation in response to postings. Improved installation and compilation procedure. Addressed excessive memory use in fitting (currently optional as it appears somewhat slower) As always feel free to browse the TRAC tickets: https://datamining.anu.edu.au/anuga/report/14

44Release Name: anuga-1.0beta_4733
4512 Sep 2007
46Notes: A number of optimisations making the evolution part of ANUGA about 40% faster. The optimisations are * Dry cell exclusion * separation of functions into gateways and computational routines * Utilisation of static work arrays * A large number of minor optimisations The dry cell exclusion will be more effective in domains with large dry areas. In addition dead code was cleared out. See https://datamining.anu.edu.au/anuga/ticket/135 and https://datamining.anu.edu.au/anuga/changeset/4669 through to https://datamining.anu.edu.au/anuga/changeset/4733 for all changes since last sourceforge release.

65Notes:
66
67ANUGA 1.0beta_4106 is the first public release of ANUGA - Hydrodynamic Modelling.
68
69Version 1.0beta is the first version for general use. It is considered as a beta release as we expect feedback and suggestions for improvement by the community.
70
71The minor release number (4106) is the revision number from Subversion and uniquely defines the exact version of ANUGA.
