Release Notes for MRST 2011b
Introduction to MRST 2011b
Since the previous release of MRST (2011a, 22nd of February 2011), the software has stabilised and solidified further. Ongoing review has uncovered and corrected a number of programming errors that only presented under very particular conditions and would typically affect few users. Moreover, work outside the core package as well as other projects not related to MRST at all has drawn the attention of the developers. As a result, MRST 2011b is mostly a bug-fixing release that also improves error reporting and tightens basic input checking in most functions. Nevertheless, the package comes with a new module supporting coarse-grid transport solves by means of the amalgamation framework.
