One test fails on Windows platforms - it has been conditionally disabled for the time being. It works fine on Linux 32 and 64 bit.
See FIXME added in this revision.

Also updated whats_new.tex with John's documentation of the STS format.

10ANUGA RELEASES ON SOURCEFORGE - Release Notes.
11
12Next release:
13Better diagnostics for timestepping. Implemented tracking of IP for data files bundled with ANUGA to ensure that all are legally OK to distribute.
14Improved logging of model runs (screen_catcher and copy_code_files).
15Refactored graphing of timeseries into extraction and plotting (see sww2timeseries and sww2cvs_gauges).
16Fixed memory issues in meshing and improved performance of least squares fitting.
17Simplified Quantity data structure.
18More validation examples.
19
20Function for automatically determining optimal smoothing parameter through cross validation.
21
22Implemented better second order approximation through the option to use edge limiters along with second order Runge-Kutta timestepping.
23This provides better accuracy in some cases (e.g. waves in deep water over long distances)
24
25Made tight_slope_limiters the default.
26
27Retired parameter beta_h
28
29Added the Okada tsunami source model

31time, Q = get_flow_through_cross_section(swwfile,
32                                         cross_section,
33                                         verbose=False)
34                                         p 57
35                                         
36Upgraded ANUGA to work with Python 2.5
37
38New fileboundary (stsboundary) coupling for timeseries on a list of points
39(not yet documented)
40
41Added new forcing terms for flood modelling capability (See p 51-53)
42
43!!!!!!!!!Need to incorporate list of closed tickets.

48Release Name: anuga-1.0beta_4824
4915 Nov 2007
50Removal 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

53Release Name: anuga-1.0beta_4733
5412 Sep 2007
55Notes: 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.

7320 Dec 2006
74Notes:
75
76ANUGA 1.0beta_4106 is the first public release of ANUGA - Hydrodynamic Modelling.
77
78Version 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.
79
80The minor release number (4106) is the revision number from Subversion and uniquely defines the exact version of ANUGA.
