Change log

There have been a number of changes in PCEnv 0.6:

  • PCEnv now runs on Mac OS X.
  • There is better support for exporting code; Python and Matlab code is able to be generated in addition to C code.
  • The generated code is now also self contained, rather than just code fragments.
  • Code can be generated for models containing differential-algebraic equations.
  • PCEnv can be built off of an unpatched xulrunner sdk, rather than requiring a patched development build of Firefox.

There were also other smaller changes, such as:
  • Minor updates to the GUI.
  • A change in how we serialise MathML cn elements to conform to the MathML 2.0 specification; this is controlled by a preference.
  • Preferences for height and font size of elements in the model tree view.
  • A slightly more robust validation service.
  • Models that fail to converge now communicate that failure in the GUI, rather than spinning endlessly.


There were also a number of minor bugfixes.
