We are proud to annouce the second release candidate of the upcoming release, 3.1.106. A few bugs were fixed for better compatibility with older systems like rhel5.

E-Cell 3.1.106 Release Candidate 1

We are pleased to announce the latest release of the E-Cell 3.1 series, 3.1.106rc1. In this release, lots of minor problem have been addressed and fixed.

It will be appreciated that you try this release candidate, and report us any remaining problem that should be fixed before the final release of 3.1.106.

Changelog:

* Updated bundled libtool script for better compatibility with MacOSX and similar systems.
* The users manual is now bundled in the distribution.
* Improved dynamic priority queue. (Koichi)
* Support for the newest NumPy release in ecell.Analysis . (Kazunari)
* Numerous minor bugfixes. (Moriyoshi)
* Added two new functions, libecs::initialize() and libecs::finalize(). Those functions need to be called before using the simulation kernel or after finished up with it respectively. Users don't have to take care of this change as long as they are using E-Cell through the Python frontends because these functions are automatically called on start-up and clean-up of pyecs module.
