• Performance
    • Continuum wide partitioning
      • Option to partition mesh by continuum and not by region
      • Results in more efficient communication and better load balancing for cases with multiple regions in the same continuum
      • Improves performance and scalability for cases with multiple regions, especially those with either a large number of regions per continuum or those with a large region connected to a number of smaller regions (e.g. underhood simulations)
    • Checkpoint save of .sim file during batch run
      • Auto-save option that will automatically save the sim file when a “checkpoint” file is present in the working directory
      • Allows for saving in batch or interactively without having to stop running or connect an interactive server
    • Option to disable intersection process on interfaces
      • Allows for interfaces to be present for meshing purposes but treated as boundaries as physics
      • Intersection process will be disabled for all interfaces where the option is set
    • IBM Platform MPI version 8.3.0.2 (Linux), version 8.3.0.3 (Windows) now supported
    • Windows 8 added as a supported platform
    • Improved error message when licenses not found
  • Usability
    • New object selector dialogue
      • Completely redesigned object selection panel
      • Improves ease of selection and identification of selected objects
      • Improves speed and efficiency of selection especially for sophisticated models
      • Includes direct selection of object groups
