Next Release, including Navier-Stokes Solver!

After some time (not giving a lot of news), I expect that a new version of OpenFlower will be released at the end of this month. We expect that there will be a huge technological gap due to a first version of the Navier-Stokes solver!
A this time, there is already the interface to an optimized solver (LASPACK) for Pressure. Also, there will be some optimization done on the Mathematical operators (diffusion, gradient, convection) allowing for a substancial speed up.
And all this still in the objective of the multi-element approach adopted from the beginning to deal with complex geometries and ... still free, open source and as easy to use as possible!

We hope to make available a more detailed User's Manual so that you will be able to fully use the code.

See U soon ... for OpenFlower V1.0 Release!

PS: I am the proud father of a baby girl who was born on May 4th! That is why I did not have much time these last months and weeks to give some news on the project.
