Crustal Deformation Modeling Workshop, June 17-24, Stanford University. This onsite workshop was combined with an online introduction and help session prior to the workshop. During the workshop advanced tutorials covered Pylith, Cubit/Trelis and ParaView. Science talks focused on post-seismic deformation and stress and strain in the lithosphere over the earthquake cycle. More information can be found under the conference website.
Code Release: Pylith 2.0. This release replaced the C++ Sieve implementation of finite-element data structures with C DMPlex implementation, which provides tighter integration with other PETSc data structures. This also reduced memory use and greatly improved memory balancing while providing speed improvements in some parts of the code. During the development of this release, the source repository migrated from Subversion to Git.
