- 2014/11/06: step-54 describes dealing with OpenCascade geometries
- step-54 (developed by Andrea Mola and Luca Heltai) demonstrates how to use existing IGES CAD files to describe the boundary of your geometry. This is the first example that uses the new support for the OpenCASCADE (www.opencascade.org) library.
- 2014/10/13: step-52 introduces time steppers
- step-52 (developed by Bruno Turcksin and Damien Lebrun-Grandie) explains how to use deal.II's built-in time stepping methods, including explicit, implicit, and embedded Runge-Kutta methods.
- 2014/09/02: step-53 shows complex geometries
- step-53 demonstrates how to work with the new framework on deforming meshes contributed by Luca Heltai earlier this summer. In particular, it shows how to create a mesh that corresponds to a realistic topography of eastern Africa, but the techniques shown there are of course much more broadly applicable.
- 2014/07/20: deal.II is now hosted on github
- After having used subversion for more than ten years, deal.II has now moved to a github repository to make it simpler for people to contribute. Links and a brief description of how to get the development sources from there can be found at the download page.
The primary means of communicating with deal.II developers and users is by email:
The deal.II discussion group is used by developers to announce new features and by users to ask questions about how to do things with deal.II. This is also the forum to post bug reports. It may not be used for job offers and to ask for internships!.
We appreciate comments and suggestions on deal.II. They can be addressed to either of the addresses above, depending on their public or private nature.
