[aspect-devel] "Initial Conditions" or "Initial Temperature Model" ?

I am confused with the naming of the subsection which is supposed to define
initial conditions (initial temperature distribution). Everywhere in the
manual, the "Initial Conditions" is used. However, in the cookbooks
parameter files, "Initial Temperature Model" subsection is used. The same
problem is with "Compositional Initial Conditions" and "Initial Composition
Model". "Initial Conditions" name doesn't work for me. If i run a parameter
file with it i get the error of the form:
Line <55> of file <input string: There is no such subsection to be entered:
Initial conditions.
So far, I have ignored this problem, by simply putting "Initial Temperature
Model" subsection when I'm defining initial conditions (and "Initial
Composition Model"). However I am wondering what is the source of this
inconsistency. Is it the version of ASPECT that I'm using? (I haven't seen
that the change in names are mentioned on lists of changes between versions
of aspect 1.4. to 1.5. or similar). For version of ASPECT that I am using,
in the file called "VERSION" it says "2.0.0-pre". Or is it something else?
I am also having difficulty using some additional plugins as shared
libraries because of this (namely a subduction plugin made by Anne Glerum)
since it uses InitialConditions namespace.
I hope I can get some clarification on this, and a suggestion on how to
solve my problem. Thanks.
