version 0.13.1 released

Dear colleagues, users, and friends,

Please find a new release – 0.13.1 – on the web. All available downloads can be found here:

Before announcing the changes, we would like to point your view on something different: SUMO is growing and while working on our own projects, we can hardly catch up with help and extension requests. We highly seek for some help, and no rocket science is needed. The following contributions would be nice:

- Reading, commenting, and improving the documentation;

- Sending us your papers for being listed on the publications page;

- Sending us your usage examples for increasing the number of tutorials;

- Contributing your extensions before they get lost or outdated

We are sorry if your request was not answered. In the case you need some extensions, you may also think about involving us in one of your projects.

We want to thank those who already helped during the last release, mainly: Matthew Fullerton, Karol Stosiek, Xiao-Feng Xie, Björn Hendriks, and Marius Dupuis.

Changes in the release:

One major change is the introduction of a static HTML-documentation. It is generated from the wiki. This should solve the gap between what the wiki describes – usually the SVN version – and the current release. The table of contents is something that can be discussed. Let us know if you see some improvement possibilities, here.

The second major change is the reallocation of tutorials coded into nightly tests. The tutorials should be now compliant with the most recent version, and, if they are not, we will be notified about this. Again: it would be nice to get some usage examples from you.

The development of an DLR-internal networks editor also brought some extensions to the open SUMO package, including the possibility to merge intersections, and a tool for determining the differences between two networks.

Two extensions have been made for the simulated induction loops. The first allows to store the measures on vehicle-type base, the second one introduces a new type of induction loops (“instantaneous”), which store information about each vehicle that enters/leave them.

TraCI was extended, as usual, adding the possibility to add and remove vehicles on-line.
