12.2 News/FOAM-extend next release (release 3.2) - test phase deadline: June 25th

After some initial testing, the new foam-extend-3.1 code is now available here: http://sourceforge.net/p/openfoam-extend/foam-extend-3.1/ci/nextRelease/tree/ as a release candidate for version 3.2. The next step is to test everything again thoroughly. We therefore invite the community to install the release candidate, run the test loop, and test your own cases.

Merge requests have now all been integrated in a new version of the foam-extend-3.1 nextRelease branch, which now constitutes a release candidate for version 3.2. The code will remain in the nextRelease branch until the official release. Click on History for the history of commits. The release notes will be updated during the testing period.

The next step is to test everything again thoroughly. We therefore invite the community to install the release candidate, run the test loop, and test your own cases. This should be done by June 25, after which foam-extend-3.2 is officially released and merged to the master branch.

To clone a fresh working copy (and checkout the nextRelease branch): mkdir ~/foam cd ~/foam git clone --branch nextRelease git://git.code.sf.net/p/openfoam-extend/foam-extend-3.1 foam-extend-3.1

To migrate from a previous foam-extend-3.1 working copy: cd ~/foam cd foam-extend-3.1 git pull git checkout nextRelease Note that work has been done also in ThirdParty, so it is a good idea to make sure that all those packages are re-compiled.

The installation instructions for Ubuntu 14.04 have been updated: $WM_PROJECT_DIR/doc/buildInstructions/Ubuntu/Ubuntu_14.04 (during testing period: switch to nextRelease branch!)

Similar installation procedures as before applies for other architectures. If all required packages are installed, it is merely a matter of sourcing the etc/bashrc file: . ~/foam/foam-extend-3.1/etc/bashrc and doing: foam ./Allwmake.firstInstall

Run the testHarness, following the instructions in $WM_PROJECT_DIR/testHarness/README.txt

Report any compilation problems in this thread. Help us write installation recipes for different architectures. Report bugs in the Mantis bug-tracker: http://sourceforge.net/p/openfoam-extend/ticketsfoamextendrelease/

Note: The version numbering has changed, with the adoption of the Semantic Versioning specification. This means that 2.4.0 was originally meant to be identified as 2.3.2. This version number change was proposed on this bug report.
