  • Capreole, Grid based hydrodynamics code.

A new version of evtwin has been added to the code.


Major changes are:

  • Stopping conditions implemented for hydrodynamics and stellar dynamics codes
  • Functionality to create SPH models from stellar evolution models.
  • N-body unit system has been re-implemented as a generic unit system.


Two need pre-requisite software packages have been added:

  • cmake - to compile evtwin
