I ended up sending this to Danny of the NA Digest, meant to send it on this list. Please see included message.

Hey all,
            I was thinking of sending a blurb about new libMesh releases to the NA Digest list. This is my first shot at a blurb for the new libMesh 0.8.0 release. Please tell me what other features I should include. I will then send this to the NA Digest editor.

%%%%%%%%%%%%%% Proposed blurb %%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%

Subject: New Release of libMesh (0.8.0)

We are pleased to announce the latest release of the C++ Finite Element library libMesh. The libMesh library provides a framework for the numerical simulation of partial differential equations using arbitrary unstructured discretizations on serial and parallel platforms. The library can be downloaded from the Sourceforge website here, http://sourceforge.net/projects/libmesh/files/ 

New features in this release include support for vector-valued finite elements, adjoint-based goal oriented error estimation and weighted patch-recovery error indicators. Release notes are available here, 

Examples illustrating the various features of the library can be found here, http://libmesh.sourceforge.net/examples.php

Subject: New Release of the k-Wave Acoustics Toolbox

We are pleased to announce the latest release of the k-Wave acoustics
toolbox. This includes the first release of an optimised C++ code for
nonlinear ultrasound simulations in 3D. All codes are licensed under
the LGPL and are available from http://www.k-wave.org.

The numerical model is based on the solution of three coupled
first-order partial differential equations that account for
nonlinearity, heterogeneities in the material parameters, and acoustic
absorption following a frequency power law (1D, 2D, and 3D). The
equations are solved using a k-space pseudospectral method, where
spatial gradients are calculated using a Fourier collocation scheme on
a staggered grid, and temporal gradients are calculated using a
k-space corrected finite-difference scheme.
