Change Log

Version 3.4.2.1+12.gb719e006

This release fixes assorted viewer issues, fixes a problem with convection boundary conditions, and introduces spherical meshes.

Attention

There are known failures with the VTK viewers (bitrot has started to set in since the demise of Python 2.7). There’s also a new parallel failure in NonUniformGrid1D that we need to figure out.

This is predominantly a DevOps release. The focus has been on making FiPy easier to install with conda. It’s also possible to install a minimal set of prerequisites with pip. Further, FiPy is automatically tested on all major platforms using cloud-based Continuous Integration (linux with CircleCI, macOS with TravisCI, and Windows with AppVeyor).

  • The Matplotlib streamplot() function can be used to display vector fields.

Version 3.0 - 2012-08-16

The bump in major version number reflects more on the substantial increase in capabilities and ease of use than it does on a break in compatibility with FiPy 2.x. Few, if any, changes to your existing scripts should be necessary.

The significant changes since version 2.1 are:

Warning

FiPy 3 brought unavoidable syntax changes from FiPy 2. Please see examples.updating.update2_0to3_0 for guidance on the changes that you will need to make to your FiPy 2.x scripts.

Version 2.1.2 - 2011-04-20

The significant changes since version 2.1.1 are:

  • Diagnostics of the parallel environment

Fixes

  • #232: Mayavi broken on windows because it has no SIGHUP.

  • #230: factoryMeshes.py not up to date with respect to keyword arguments

  • #226: MatplotlibViewer fails if backend doesn’t support flush_events()

Version 2.1.1 - 2010-10-05

The significant changes since version 2.1 are:

Fixes

  • #199: dummy viewer results in “NotImplementedError: can’t instantiate abstract base class

  • #198: bug problem with CylindricalGrid1D

  • #197: How to tell if parallel is configured properly?

  • #194: FIPY_DISPLAY_MATRIX on empty matrix with large b-vector throws ValueError

  • #193: FIPY_DISPLAY_MATRIX raises ImportError in FiPy 2.1 and trunk

  • #192: FIPY_DISPLAY_MATRIX=terms raises TypeError in FiPy 2.1 and trunk

Version 2.1 - 2010-04-01

The relatively small change in version number belies significant advances in FiPy capabilities. This release did not receive a “full” version increment because it is completely (er… 1) compatible with older scripts.

The significant changes since version 2.0.2 are:

  • FiPy can use Trilinos for Solving in Parallel.

  • We have switched from MayaVi 1 to Mayavi 2. This Viewer is an independent process that allows interaction with the display while a simulation is running.

  • Documentation has been switched to Sphinx, allowing the entire manual to be available on the web and for our documentation to link to the documentation for packages such as numpy, scipy, matplotlib, and for Python itself.

Fixes

  • #190: “matplotlib: list index out of range” when no title given, but only sometimes

  • #182: ~binOp doesn’t work on branches/version-2_0

  • #180: broken arithmetic face to cell distance calculations

  • #179: easy_install instructions for Mac OS X are broken

  • #177: broken setuptools url with python 2.6

  • #169: The FiPy webpage seems to be broken on Internet Explorer

  • #156: update the mayavi viewer to use mayavi 2

  • #153: Switch documentation to use :math: directive

1

Only two examples from FiPy 2.0 fail when run with FiPy 2.1:

  • examples/phase/symmetry.py fails because Mesh no longer provides a getCells method. The mechanism for enforcing symmetry in the updated example is both clearer and faster.

  • examples.levelSet.distanceFunction.circle fails because of a change in the comparison of masked values.

Both of these are subtle issues unlikely to affect very many FiPy users.

Version 2.0.3 - 2010-03-17

Fixes

  • #188: SMTPSenderRefused: (553, “5.1.8 <trac@matdl-osi.org>… Domain of sender address trac@matdl-osi.org does not exist”, u‘“FiPy” <trac@matdl-osi.org>’)

Version 2.0 - 2009-02-09

Warning

FiPy 2 brings unavoidable syntax changes. Please see examples.updating.update1_0to2_0 for guidance on the changes that you will need to make to your FiPy 1.x scripts.

The significant changes since version 1.2 are:

  • CellVariable and FaceVariable objects can hold values of any rank.

Version 1.2 - 2007-02-12

Fixes

  • #98: Windows patch for some broken test cases

  • #16: Dimensions

  • #12: Refactor viewers

  • #1: Gnuplot doesn’t display on windows

Version 1.1 - 2006-06-06

The significant changes since version 1.0 are:

  • Memory efficiency has been improved in a number of ways, but most significantly by:

    • not caching all intermediate Variable values.

    • introducing UniformGrid classes that calculate geometric arrays on the fly.

    Details of these improvements are presented in Efficiency.

  • Installation on Windows has been made considerably easier by constructing executable installers for FiPy and its dependencies.

  • The arithmetic for Variable subclasses now works, and returns sensible answers. For example, VectorCellVariable * CellVariable returns a VectorCellVariable.

  • PeriodicGrid meshes have been implemented. Currently, however, there and no examples of their use in the manual.

  • Many of the examples have been completely rewritten

    • A basic 1D diffusion problem now serves as a general tutorial for setting up any problem in FiPy.

    • Several more phase field examples have been added that should make it clearer how to get from the simple 1D case to the more elaborate multicomponent, multidimensional, and anisotropic models.

    • The “Superfill” examples have been substantially improved with better functionality and documentation.

    • An example of fluid flow with the classic Stokes moving lid has been added.

  • A clear distinction has been made between solving an equation via solve() and iterating an non-linear equation to solution via sweep(). An extensive explanation of the concepts involved has been added to the Frequently Asked Questions.

  • Added a MultiViewer class that automatically groups several viewers together if the variables couldn’t be displayed by a single viewer.

  • The abbreviated syntax from fipy import Class or from fipy import * promised in version 1.0 actually works now. The examples all still use the fully qualified names.

  • The repository has been converted from a CVS to a Subversion repository. Details on how to check out the new repository are given in Installation.

  • The FiPy repository has also been moved from Sourceforge to the Materials Digital Library Pathway.

Version 1.0 - 2005-09-16

Numerous changes have been made since FiPy 0.1 was released, but the most significant ones are:

  • Equation objects no longer exist. PDEs are constructed from Term objects. Term objects can be added, subtracted, and equated to build up an equation.

  • A true 1D grid class has been added: fipy.meshes.grid1D.Grid1D.

  • A generic “factory” method fipy.viewers.make() has been added that will do a reasonable job of automatically creating a Viewer for the supplied Variable objects. The FIPY_VIEWER environment variable allows you to specify your preferred viewer.

  • A simple TSVViewer has been added to allow display or export to a file of your solution data.

  • It is no longer necessary to transpose() scalar fields in order to multiply them with vector fields.

  • Better default choice of solver when convection is present.

  • Better examples.

  • A number of NoiseVariable objects have been added.

  • A new viewer based on Matplotlib has been added.

  • The PyX viewer has been removed.

  • Considerably simplified the public interface to FiPy.

  • Support for Python 2.4.

  • Improved layout of the manuals.

  • getLaplacian() method has been removed from CellVariable objects. You can obtain the same effect with getFaceGrad().getDivergence(), which provides better control.

  • An import shorthand has been added that allows for:

    from fipy import Class
    

    instead of:

    from fipy.some.deeply.nested.module.class import Class
    

    This system is still experimental. Please tell us if you find situations that don’t work.

The syntax of FiPy 1.0 scripts is incompatible with earlier releases. A tutorial for updating your existing scripts can be found in examples/updating/update0_1to1_0.py.
