Hello,

I am pleased to announce version 0.1.1 of SOLVCON.  SOLVCON is a Python-based,
multi-physics software framework for solving first-order hyperbolic PDEs.

The source tarball can be downloaded at

This release adds a loader of Gmsh mesh format and fixes several bugs.

New features:

- Add a loader for Gmsh ASCII mesh format.  The loader locates in
  solvcon.io.gmsh and is implemented as pure Python code.  ``scg mesh`` command
  line tool can recognize the format.  Issue #52.
- Revamp the dependency building system to support older OSes and proxies that
  need authentication.  Issue #53.
- Extract the SCons commands for building the Epydoc and Sphinx document from
  SConstruct into standalone SCons tools.  Two new tools are added in the
  directory ``site_scons/site_tools/``: ``sphinx.py`` and ``scons_epydoc.py``.
  Note that the SCons tool for Epydoc cannot be named as ``epydoc.py`` or the
  name collides with the real ``epydoc`` package.
- Add Gmsh and Sphinx into ground/.

Bug-fix:

- Issue #49: "No Vtk for final time step".  Output timing of CollectHook and
  MarchSave.
- Issue #54: "Shared objects are not found under Mac OS X".  Thank you Nathan.
- Issue #38: "soln/dsoln shouldn't be hard-coded".
