2017.11.03 - blueCFD-Core 2017-1 has been released PDF Print E-mail

Today we release blueCFD-Core 2017-1, which provides OpenFOAM 5.x as a native build for Windows, with OpenFOAM binaries acting as normal Windows applications.

The installer for blueCFD-Core 2017-1 is installed separately from blueCFD-Core 2016, therefore both installations can coexist.

Released elements are:

  • blueCFD-Core-2017-1-win64-setup.exe

    • blueCFD-Core 2017-1 provides MSys2, OpenFOAM 5.x and ParaView 5.4.1.

    • 727 MiB installer, SHA1: 4367af23e453dde2dd406539a01ef76f2afa2376

  • The Release Notes for blueCFD-Core 2017-1 page has been created for this release.

  • The Frequently Asked Questions page is being revised for this release and will be completed as soon as possible.

  • A Project Management page for organization/project members is available to list the tasks that are in development for the next release of blueCFD-Core, for easier coordination with anyone who wants to contribute and/or stay up-to-date on what is being done.

  • A wiki is available for software developers and system installers, which will be updated in the next few weeks: blueCFD-Core wiki

The source code provided for the port of OpenFOAM 5.x has been released here, as well as of ThirdParty-5.x here.

As mentioned above, the development infrastructure is based on MSys2 and instructions for developing in a clean installation of MSys2 will be provided at openfoamwiki.net, as soon as possible.

For a complete list of bug reports, issues and wishes that have been submitted to the blueCFD-Core project, see the Issue Tracker page. For example, a complete list of issues and tasks that were conducted for developping blueCFD-Core 2017-1, are available there: milestone blueCFD-Core 2017-1.
