What's New in NEMO

The latest official export version is , though you can also try the probably more recent nemo_cvs.tar.gz , which is a CVS enabled directory tree for anonymous CVS. The file VERSION_cvs contains a timestamp of that creation.

A rushy release, since i'm travelling for two weeks, and also working on NEMO.

3.0.1: (5 April 2001)

This release is claimed to configure and compile clean on linux (at least redhat 6.2). It also works on most Solaris and SGI, but may need some tweaking of the $NEMOLIB/makedefs and $NEMO/NEMORC.local files.

3.0.0: (1 April 2001)

The new release series for NEMO V3 is imminent. Although the code is compatible, some details in shared object loaded have now been changed, and are not backwards compatible. You should probably not overlay the new NEMO on top of an old directory structure (although nothing has changed to that). CVS is now also offered to those who like to participate in the development.

With Solaris 2.3 (SUN OS 5.3) now running on a local UMD test machine, most of NEMO is now running. This includes a smooth running
loadobj package, as well as a yapp in X (this one thanks to Patrick Frisch ). NOTE: the export tar files have not been updated yet, as much more proper testing is needed.
