Finite element parallel code to simulate problems in thermal convection in both 2D and 3D models.
New: Averaging of material properties between the quadrature points of a cell. This greatly increases the stability of solutions in simulations with spatially varying coefficients, and also greatly accelerates the solution, at times up to a factor of ten.
Corrections to the entropy stabilization scheme for compositional fields. Fixed and extended: Removal of rigid body translations and rotations when the simulation has a nullspace.
New: VTU visualization output can now be grouped into an arbitrary number of files per time step.
Various fixes to the nonlinear solver residual computation.
New visualization postprocessors that can output the shear stress and full stress tensors.
Fixes to the latent heat formulation.
New 'ascii data' plugins for boundary and initial conditions.
New mass flux statistics postprocessor.
Many other fixes and small improvements.
