Differences Between DuMu<sup>x</sup> 3.4 and DuMu<sup>x</sup> 3.3

### Improvements and Enhancements
- __Several scripts have been translated to Python__:
    - `getusedversions.sh` to extract the used Dumux/Dune versions of a module (new script: `bin/util/getusedversions.py`)
    - `extractmodulepart.sh` no longer creates an install file, instead, you can now generate install scripts for your module using the new script `bin/util/makeinstallscript.py`.
    - Note: the old shells script will be removed after release 3.4.

- __Requirements__: DuMu<sup>x</sup> now requires Dune >=2.7 and CMake >= 3.13.
- __New way to use material laws__: The usage of laws for pc-Sw and kr-Sw has been completely revised. A caller does not have to pass a `parameters` object to the laws anymore. The `spatialParams` now provide a `fluidMatrixInteraction` function which bundles an arbitrary number of
 different interaction laws such as a pc-Sw and kr-Sw curve and interfacial areas.
 New pre-cached spline laws were added which can help to increase efficiency. The usage of the old interface is deprecated and warnings will be raised. The old interface will be removed after the release of 3.3.
- __New example__: We have added another free-flow example dealing with lid-driven cavity flow.
- __Install script written in Python__: The DuMu<sup>x</sup> install script has been translated to Python to improve portability. The old shell script will be removed after release 3.3.
- __Improved velocity reconstruction__: The velocity reconstruction for immiscible porous-media models has been improved, leading to slightly

### Immediate interface changes not allowing/requiring a deprecation period:
34
- __Flash/Constraintsolver__: The flashes depending on material laws are immediately required to use new-style material laws (fluidMatrixInteraction interface in spatialparams)
Kilian Weishaupt's avatar
Kilian Weishaupt committed
35
- __Box interface solver__: The box interface solver immediately requires the new material law interface without deprecation period. Use the new class `BoxMaterialInterfaces` and update your spatial params to use the new fluidmatrixinteraction interface to be able to use the box interface solver in version 3.3.
36
- For the "sequential" models, the property `BoundaryTypes` has been simply renamed to `SequentialBoundaryTypes`
37
- __Quadmath__: Dumux::Quad has been removed without deprecation. Use Dune::Float128 instead.
38
39
- Within the RANS group, two additional runtime parameters have been included 'IsFlatWallBounded' and 'WriteFlatWallBoundedFields'.
For both the K-Epsilon and Zero-eq RANS models the 'IsFlatWallBounded' runtime parameter should be set as True,
40
as wall topology is not supported for these models with our geometric constraints. If not set as true, the geometry
41
will be checked before the model is run. If either the runtime parameter or the geometry check indicate non-flat walls,
42
the model will terminate. To add FlatWallBounded specific output to the vtk output, WriteFlatWallBoundedFields can be set as True.
43
- __1d3d coupling__: The kernel coupling manager has been replaced with the one from Koch et al (2020) JCP https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jcp.2020.109370
44
45
- __1d3d coupling__: The average and surface coupling managers has been updated with a slightly more accurate version to compute the stencils and the average operator.
The results might differ a bit when using coarse grids. However, both version are expected to converge to the same result with grid refinement.

65
=============================================

### Improvements and Enhancements

66
- __C++17__: DuMu<sup>x</sup> now requires a C++ compiler supporting the C++17 features of GCC 7 (e.g. GCC 7, Clang 5).
67
68
- __Radially symmetric problems__: We now have support for radially symmetric problems (disc, ball, toroid). The support comes in form of wrappers for sub control volumes and faces that overload the respective `volume()` and `area()` function turning a 1d or 2d problem into a 2d or 3d radially symmetric problem.

69
70
- __Improvements of Beavers-Joseph(-Saffman) condition for the free flow model__: The naming for handling BJ(-S) boundary conditions has been adapted from `isBJS()` to `isBeaversJoseph()` / `setBJS()` to `setBeaversJoseph()`. In order to consider the velocity within the porous medium, the old `velocityPorousMedium(element, scvf)` method (returning a Scalar) has been renamed to `porousMediumVelocity(element, scvf)` (returning a velocity vector). The latter defaults to `VelocityVector(0.0)`.

71
72
- __Van Genuchten__: The VanGenuchten-Mualem material law now allows to set a parameter `l` (default to 0.5) which is sometimes fitted.

73
74
- __Runtime variable output precision e.g. Float64__: The VtkOutputModule has been adapted to allow easy changes of the vtk output precision. It is now possible to specify output precision in the input file using `Vtk.Precision` followed by either `Float32`, `Float64`, `UInt32`, `UInt8` or `Int32`. `Float32` stays the default. We especially advice the use of `Float64` when working with restart files.
An additional new option is `Vtk.CoordPrecision` which changes the precision of the coordinates only and uses the default of `Vtk.Precision`.
75
76
77

- __Effective Laws and Diffusion Coefficients__: The effective laws interface has been changed within !1684. The interface for these laws has been unified, and all coefficents are to be stored in containers that fit to the model. These quantities should then be added in the volumeVariables, meaning all effective quantities would be accessible from the volumevariables.

78
79
- __Examples__: The documentation of the examples has been improved further, focusing on readability and convenience. Further, three additional examples are included the folder `examples`. To get an overview, point your browser to https://git.iws.uni-stuttgart.de/dumux-repositories/dumux/tree/master/examples.

80
- __Linear solvers__: There is a new ISTL solver factory backend which allows to choose solvers at runtime (requires dune-istl 2.7) and also enables more parallel solvers (requires dune-istl > 2.7.0).

87

88

89
- __AMGBackend__: The internal structure of the AMGBackend and the ParallelISTLHelper has been overhauled, as only used by the AMG, we did not make the changes backwards-compatible
90

1 for regular BCRS matrices and a value of 2 for MultiTypeBlock matrices. The respective calls from the `NewtonSolver` and `PDESolver`classes have been adapted.

rather than on `M[1][1]`. This also requires re-arranging the submodels and properties in dumux-multidomain such that the face-related classes and vector entries now appear before the cell-centered ones.

Backwards-compatibility can only be provided to a certain extent. The following changes need to made in the main file:

1.) change the order of the arguments for the `assembler` such that it reads:
```c++
auto assembler = std::make_shared<Assembler>(std::make_tuple(ffProblem, ffProblem, otherProblem, ...),
                                             std::make_tuple(ffGridGeometry->faceFVGridGeometryPtr(),
                                                             ffFvGridGeometry->cellCenterFVGridGeometryPtr(),
                                                             otherFvGridGeometry, ...),
                                             std::make_tuple(ffGridVariables->faceGridVariablesPtr(),
                                                             ffGridVariables->cellCenterGridVariablesPtr(),
                                                             otherGridVariables, ...),
                                             couplingManager,
                                             timeLoop, solOld);

// Not changing the arguments will yield a deprecation warning stating this hint but the code still compiles and runs.
```

2.) change the order of arguments in the `partial` function:
```c++
ffSol = partial(sol, ffFaceIdx, ffCellCenterIdx);

// Not changing the argument will rise a compiler error which makes the MR not fully backwards-compatible.
```

137
138
139
Regarding changes made to the effective laws and diffusionCoefficient containters, Backwards-compatibility is maintined for a large extent, barring any volumevariable classes defined externally that inherit from the non-isothermal volumevariables.
If you use a self defined volumevariables class that inherits from the non-isothermal volumevariables, please adapt the your volumevariables class to fit to the non-isothermal volumevariables, and include the new methods for accessing the diffusion and effective diffusion coefficients.

- __Box__: The box scheme works now on grids with prism / wedge elements in 3D.

- __Diffusive fluxes__: We revised the formulation of the diffusion laws to allow for changes between mass-averaged velocity reference systems and molar-averaged velocity reference systems. The standard formulation is now set to mass-averaged velocity reference systems.

- __GridManager__:
    * Supports now reading unstructured grids and data from vtu/vtp files (ASCII, XML format) sequential.
      For UGGrid and FoamGrid you can specify a grid in such a format in the input file:
      `Grid.File = mygrid.vtu` / `Grid.File = mygrid.vtp`. The associated data is then available in the grid data object.
    * Instead of always including all grid manager specializations you can now only include the specialization that you need.
      For example, if you only use YaspGrid in your code, you only need to include `dumux/io/grid/gridmanager_yasp.hh`. The
      convenience header `dumux/io/grid/gridmanager.hh` still includes all specializations.
    * Added a `NetPBMReader` which allows to read simple raster images files (`*.pbm` and `*.pgm`). Can be used, e.g., with
      `dune-subgrid` in order to create a grid from an image file.

- __Freeflow__: A second order approximation of the convective term of all Navier-Stokes based models is now available.
Roman Winter's avatar
Roman Winter committed
182
  This can be enabled using the property `UpwindSchemeOrder`. This property defaults to a first order upwinding approximation,
183
  which is the method used for all models in release 3.0. If this property is set to `2`, a second order flux limiter method will be used.
184
185
186
187
  Various flux limiter functions have been implemented to maintain the monotonicity of this discretization. Per default the
  `Minmod` flux limiter is used, but `Vanleer`, `Vanalbada`, `Superbee`, `Umist`, `Mclimiter`, and `Wahyd` based flux limiters
  are also available. These can be specified using the input file entry `Flux.DifferencingScheme`. These methods are also
  implemented for non-uniform structured grids (e.g. YaspGrid - TensorProductCoordinates). Per default, a scheme assuming a

  uniform grid is used, but two other methods, `Li` and `Hou`, are both available for adaptations to non-uniform grids.
189
  These can be specified using the input file entry `Flux.TVDApproach`.

191
- __RANS__: The called RANS model, defined in the properties system, will specify, via the model traits,
192
193
194
  which RANS problem implementation should be used. In each problem file, the initial and boundary conditions can be
  set using templated functions based on the model type. Examples of these functions exist in the RANS based tests.
  No further preprocessor macros are required.

- __ShallowWater__: Thanks to Leopold Stadler we now have a shallow water equations solver / model. Have a look at freeflow/shallowwater and give it a try with the dam break test at test/freeflow/shallowwater. The are also some friction laws computing shear stresses (Manning, Nikuradse) to account for friction in a channel/river bed, thanks to Martin Utz.

- __Staggered__: Added a `StaggeredNewtonConvergenceWriter` for the staggered grid discretization scheme.

- __Solver__: There is a new abstract base class `PDESolver` that is a class that does linearize & assemble, solve and update.

208
- `NewtonConvergenceWriter`'s first template argument has changed from `GridView` to `FVGridGeometry`. This allows to call the `resize()` method after a grid change without any arguments.
  Here is an example how to instatiate the convergence writer:
209
210
211
212
  ```
  using NewtonConvergenceWriter = Dumux::NewtonConvergenceWriter<FVGridGeometry, SolutionVector>;
  auto convergenceWriter = std::make_shared<NewtonConvergenceWriter>(*fvGridGeometry);
  ```
213

214
215
216
217
- The interface of the abstract `TimeLoopBase` class has been extended by `virtual void advanceTimeStep()`, `virtual void setTimeStepSize(Scalar dt)`,
  `virtual Scalar maxTimeStepSize()`, and `virtual bool finished()`, thus forcing the inheriting classes to implement those functions.
  `TimeLoop` is no longer a template argument in `NewtonSolver`'s `solve()` method, thereby increasing
  type safety and providing better compiler error messages.

## Improvements and Enhancements

### General

- __New style main files:__ 3.0 comes which a major overhaul of how the sequence of simulation steps is specified.
  Until 2.12 there was the start.hh header including the free function `start` that contained a predefined sequence of
  steps. Customization of the sequence was possible by many hooks implemented in classes used in this sequence. This
  made it hard to follow the course of the program and hard to implement customization at points where this was not previously envisioned.
  In contrast, in the new approach the sequence of simulation steps was linearized, meaning that each step is visible
  in the program's main file. In the new main files, one can clearly see the io, initialization, assembly, solving, update, time loop, etc.,
  of the program. Many parts of the simulation that were previously mandatory, i.e. simulations in 2.12 always contained a time loop,
  are now optional (stationary simulations just don't need a time loop). The new style main files make it easier two follow the course
  of the program, are easier to customize, and offer more flexibility concerning the customization of steps and components of a simulation.
  All tests and examples in the dumux repository have been adapted to the new style main files.
- __Property system:__ The property system is now usable without preprocessor macros. To this end it was completely reimplemented using C++14 techniques and
  variadic templates. The hierarchies can now be arbitrarily deep instead of being limited to 5 levels. The new implementation does not use
  C++ inheritance. Properties and TypeTag now have to be properly qualified with the namespaces `Properties::`, `TTag::`. Types that share the
  name with properties have to properly qualified with the `Dumux::` namespace. This update makes it hopefully more readable
  and removes the "magic" part from the property system.
- __Runtime parameters:__ Runtime parameters are no longer accessed with preprocessor macros. They have been replaced by C++ function templates
  `Dumux::getParam`, `Dumux::hasParam`, `Dumux::getParamFromGroup`. The `..FromGroup` version has been redesigned to allow the specification
  of parameters for different models in one input file. The concept of a parameter group string was extended to make it possible to
  use a single input file for complex multidomain simulation setups.
- __Restarting simulations:__ The old restart module was replaced by an implementation based on a VTK backend (other formats might be added later such as HDF5).
  Restarted simulations can read solutions from vtk files. For parallel runs, there is currently the restriction that the number of processors has to be the same
  as before the restart. Restarted simulations can read grids from vtk (currently only sequential, non-adaptive grids, support for parallel and adaptive
  will be added in a future version).
- __Assembly__: The assembler can now assemble implicit and explicit Euler time discretizations. An interface for implementing analytical Jacobians was added.
  The CCTpfa assembler has been significantly improved for complex models that spend a lot of time computing constitutive laws. Also the numerical
  differentiation scheme was improved by altering the order in which derivatives are computed.
301
302
- __TypeTag templates:__ Implementers of code in DuMu<sup>x</sup> 3.0 are advised to avoid TypeTag as a template argument for class templates.
  Many classes in the DuMu<sup>x</sup> core have been changed to have a small number of specific template arguments, including `GridGeometry`,

  `TimeLoop`, `Newton`, `LinearSolver`, `SpatialParams`. This makes it possible to share objects of these types between models using
  different TypeTags. This was not possible before as `Class<TypeTag1>` and `Class<TypeTag2>` are different types, even if they contain
  exactly the same implementation code.
  Furthermore, having TypeTag as a template argument leads to bad programming, and unnecessary dependencies that should be avoided in
  every object-oriented code.
- __The grid geometry concept:__ In version 3.0, discretization methods use grid geometries which are wrappers or adapters around a `Dune::GridView`,
  providing data structures and interfaces necessary to implement these discretization methods easily. In particular, the
  abstraction of sub-control-volumes (scv) and sub-control-volume-faces (scvf) are now separate classes and the grid geometry provides means to iterate
  over all scvs and scvfs of an element, using range-based-for loops.
- __The caching concept:__ Version 3.0 introduces a caching concept for the new grid geometry, the volume variables and the flux variables.
  There are classes with a `Grid` prefix, that store data for the current grid view, and classes with the `Element` prefix that store data locally
  for an element or element stencil. Depending on the caching concept used, data will be either stored completely in the `Grid` objects
  (e.g. `GridGeometry`) and the `Element` objects (e.g. `ElementGeometry`) are mere accessor objects, or, data will be partly only cached locally.
  Local caching uses less memory but might result in an increased runtime. Grid caching is memory intensive
  but can provide a significant run-time speedup. Choose whatever concept fits your available resources,
  the default being local caching.
- __Support__ for grid managers `dune-subgrid` (a meta grid selecting only certain elements from a host grid)
  and `dune-spgrid` (a structured parallel grid manager, supporting periodic boundaries).

### Models, Physics and Methods

324
325
- __MPFA schemes:__ The new design of the DuMu<sup>x</sup> core facilitates the incorporation of new finite-volume schemes. In particular, the new core comes with
  a framework for MPFA schemes, in which currently the only available scheme is the MPFA-O scheme. It can be used in conjunction with any DuMu<sup>x</sup> model and
Bernd Flemisch's avatar
Bernd Flemisch committed
326
  also works on surface grids. More schemes will be added in the future.
327
- __Box-dfm:__ The `2pdfm` model from version 2.12 has been generalized such that it can be used on any DuMu<sup>x</sup> model and in both two and three dimensions.
Bernd Flemisch's avatar

328
329
330
331
332
333
- __Tracer transport__: A new model for tracer transport with a given flow field has been added. The model can be also used to implement sequentially
  coupled simulations, or iterative solvers where flow and transport are decoupled / weakly coupled.
- __Mineralization__: An adapter model for mineralization has been added and can be used with all porousmediumflow models. A balance for the solid
  volume fraction of precipitating, adsorbed, or absorbed substances is added to the existing equations.
- __Solution-dependent spatial params:__ A redesign of the spatial params interface allows now to define spatial parameters such as permeability
  and porosity that depend on the solution. This makes it easier to implement mineralization models altering the solid structure of the porous medium.
334
- __Solid systems:__ DuMu<sup>x</sup> 3.0 introduces solid systems similar to fluid systems but for solid components. This allows a consistent
Bernd Flemisch's avatar
Bernd Flemisch committed
335
336
  implementation of mineralization models including reactions, dissolution, precipitation and other processes altering the solid
  phase of the porous medium.
337
- __Multidomain:__ DuMu<sup>x</sup> 3.0 introduces a new multidomain framework which does no longer depend on `dune-multidomain` and can be used for the coupling
Bernd Flemisch's avatar
Bernd Flemisch committed
338
  of an arbitrary number of subdomains. The sub-domains can be regions in which different sets of equations are solved and/or which have different
339
  dimensionalities. The implementation is such that any of the existing DuMu<sup>x</sup> models can be used in the subdomains, while the data and functionality

340
341
342
343
344
345
346
  required for the coupling of the sub-domains is implemented in a `CouplingManger` class. Three different coupling concepts are available, for which
  there are a number of available `CouplingManager` class implementations:
    - _Boundary:_ coupling across sub-domain boundaries
    - _Embedded:_ Coupling between a bulk domain and an embedded lower-dimensional sub-domain which has an independent grid
    - _Facet:_ Coupling betweeen a bulk domain and a codimension-one sub-domain, which is conforming with the element facets of the bulk domain
- __Free-flow models:__ The previous Navier-Stokes model using the box method has been replaced by one that employs a staggered grid discretization.
  The new method does not  require any stabilization techniques while those were necessary for the box method in order to avoid spurious oscillations.
347
  The free-flow models in DuMu<sup>x</sup> 3.0 consider single phase flow with or without component/energy transport. So far, only regular Cartesian grids are supported

  but local grid refinement will be added in a future release.
  Several RANS models for turbulent flow have been added: k-omega, k-epsilon, low-Re-k-epsilon, one-eq, zero-eq. The RANS models might be subject to further (interface)
  changes.
- __Thermal and chemical non-equilibrium:__ The possibility to consider thermal and/or chemical non-equilibrium of several types has been enabled for all
  porous medium models.
- __Interface solver:__ For the two-phase flow model in conjunction with the box scheme, an interface solver can now be used to reconstruct the saturations
  in the sub-control volumes adjacent to vertices that lie on material discontinuities. This allows a sharper representation of the saturation front evolving
  in heterogeneous porous media.
- __Components:__ Components can now derive from different base classes, `Base`, `Liquid`, `Solid`, `Gas`, depending on which
  phase states are implemented. This can be used to determine at compile time if a component supports a certain phase state.
- __Tabulation of fluid parameter laws:__ The tabulation of fluid parameter laws has been improved to only tabulate those functions actually used during the
  simulation. To this end, the tabulation is done on the first call of a corresponding fluid parameter.
- __MPNC:__ The general m-phase n-component model has been adapted in structure to the other porous medium flow models.
- __Different wettability:__ The 2p models can now model materials with different wettability (hydrophobic, hydrophilic) in different parts of the domain.
- __Maxwell-Stefan-diffusion:__ Most models can now use Maxwell-Stefan diffusion for multi-component diffusion instead of Fickian diffusion.
  There are also a few tests demonstrating how to use it.

## Immediate interface changes not allowing/requiring a deprecation period

- Many classes have been completely redesigned. See the numerous example applications included in 3.0 showcasing all new classes.
- The `GridCreator` has been replaced by the `GridManager`, which no longer uses a singleton for the grid object.
  This makes it possible to create two grids of the exact same type. The `GridManager` also handles user data provided in grid files.

## Deprecated classes/files, to be removed after 3.0
- All classes of the sequential models are deprecated. The sequential models will be ported to the new structure
  of porous medium models (formerly called implicit models). This way sequential and implicit model implementations
  no longer differ and use the same numerical infrastructure.
- The `TimeManager` class is to be replaced by the class `TimeLoop`.
- The `VtkMultiWriter` class is to be replaced by the class `VtkOutputModule`.
- The file `start.hh` is replaced by new style main files.

      `ALUGrid`. Then, you currently have to use the `master-old` branch of
      dune-alugrid. We will try to fix this as soon as possible. Alternatively,
      `UGGrid` or `YaspGrid` can be chosen as grid managers.

    - Instead of using AlbertaGrid for the tests where dim < dimWorld, we now
      employ
      [dune-foamgrid](https://gitlab.dune-project.org/extensions/dune-foamgrid).
      Dune-foamgrid provides 1d and 2d simplex grids embedded in an arbitrary
      dimension world space. It features element parametrizations, runtime growth,
      runtime-movable vertices. You might still use AlbertaGrid, but it is not
      supported by our GridCreator.

    - If you like/have to use corner-point grids by means of the module
      dune-cornerpoint, you have to use (and partially patch) the 2015.10 release
      of [OPM](http://opm-project.org/?page_id=36). See `patches/README` for
      details.

    - The folder structure has been changed according to
      [FS#250](http://www.dumux.org/flyspray/index.php?do=details&task_id=250).
      This has been a rather massive change affecting more than 1000 files. Close
      to 400 files have been moved and/or renamed.
      We made everything backwards-compatible, the worst thing that should happen
620
      after switching to DuMu<sup>x</sup> 2.9, will be some warnings when including headers

      from old destinations/names. You can fix the include statements and get rid
      of the warnings by applying the bash script `bin/fix_includes.sh` to your
      source files, for example by executing
      ```
      bash ../dumux/bin/fix_includes.sh file1 [file2 ...]

          for. Three main application areas on the top level: `porousmediumflow`,
          `freeflow` and `geomechanics`. The different numerical treatments "fully
          implicit" or "sequential" appear as discretization detail after the
          choice of the physical model. That's of course currently rather wishful
          thinking, but nevertheless where we are headed. The folder `implicit` on
          the top level now only contains physics-agnostic classes that can be used
          by any class of an application area.  Please note the change from
          "decoupled" to "sequential" according to the related task
          [FS#252](http://www.dumux.org/flyspray/index.php?do=details&task_id=252).

        + Nicer include statements due to relaxation of the naming conventions for
          the header files. Compare the old
          ```

        + Analogously, the tests from `test/decoupled/particular_model` have been
          moved to `test/porousmediumflow/particular_model/sequential`.

        + The subfolders `decoupled` and `implicit` of `test` have been removed.

          conflicts directly or create a patch, remove the local changes, pull, and
          apply the patch afterwards with some care to respect the changed
          structure.

    - A two-phase multiple-interacting-continua (MINC) model has been added to

    - The multidomain models have been restructured. Duplicated code has been
      reduced; isothermal and non-isothermal models are treated in a more
      consistent manner.

    - It is now possible to specify point sources for implicit models. A point

      sources can be e.g. solution and/or time-dependent. See tests
      (1p/implicit/pointsources, 2p/implicit/pointsources) for examples.

    - All tests use our standard `GridCreator` now. If it is possible to specify
      the grid entirely in the input-file, the corresponding DGF files have been
      deleted. In particular, a YaspGrid tensor grid can now also be specified via
      the input file only.

    - Several sections on our fluid/material framework have been moved from the
      handbook to the Doxygen documentation.

    - The three-phase constitutive relations from
      `material/fluidmatrixinteractions` have been reworked to be consistent with
      their two-phase analogues. In particular, an `EffToAbsLaw` and
      regularization classes have been implemented.

    - In case of a simulation stop due to too many timestep subdivisions, restart
      files of both the current and the old solution are automatically generated.

      for details.

    - For the multidomain models, the notation of the boundary condition types
      has changed. This is especially important for all momentum boundary
      conditions. In general:
        + `couplingInflow`  -> `couplingNeumann`
        + `couplingOutflow` -> `couplingDirichlet`
    - But for the momentum balances:
        + `couplingInflow`  -> `couplingDirichlet`
        + `couplingOutflow` -> `couplingNeumann`

    - Due to the change in the three-phase fluid-matrix-interactions, you might
      have to adjust your spatial parameters. You should get a compiler warning
      message that gives you more details.

    - The TypeTags `ImplicitModel` and `ExplicitModel` have been deleted. They
      haven't been used apart from one internal inheritance. See FS#304 for
      details.

  - New fully-implicit porous-media models for two fluid phases that may consist
    of an arbitrary number of components have been added. The basic one is
    associated with the property TwoPNC, see test/implicit/2pnc. A more advanced
    one that incorporates solid-fluid phase changes is indicated by TwoPNCMin,
    see test/implicit/2pncmin.

  - The implicit cell-centered models now can use adaptive grid refinement. To
    make a test problem adaptive, just set the property AdaptiveGrid to true and
    choose corresponding indicators via AdaptionInitializationIndicator and
    AdaptionIndicator, see test/implicit/2p/lensproblem.hh for an example. So
    far, indicators are only provided for the TwoPModel. Indicators for other
    models will be provided in the future, as well as parallelization and box
    discretization.

  - With the CpGridCreator, a grid creator has been introduced that reads from a
    Petrel output / Eclipse input file and generates a CpGrid that is offered by
    the OPM module dune-cornerpoint. The fully-implicit cell-centered models are
    now able to deal with cornerpoint grids. See
    test/implicit/2p/test_cc2pcornerpoint for a test of the functionality. A
    realistic corner-point grid will be provided in dumux-lecture soon. The OPM
    modules need to be patched to be compatible with Dune's CMake based build
    system, see patches/README for details.

  - A new class GridCreator is now the new standard grid creator replacing
    DgfGridCreator. It comprises all functionality from the DgfGridCreator (see
    also immediate interface changes), plus the ability to read gmsh, or to
    build a structured grid (only with Dune 2.4) by merely changing the input
    file.

  - Multidomain problems can now be run by using the general start routine,
    just as most other problems. For this, the constructor of the multidomain
    problems has been changed and the InterfaceMeshCreator has been replaced by
    the InterfaceGridCreator, see below.

  - The Richards model has now an additional flag useHead, which can be used to
    switch between a pressure-saturation and a pressureHead-watercontent
    formulation. The primary variables are either pressure in [Pa] or pressure
    head in [cm], respectively. Default is useHead = false. See
    test/implicit/richards for details.

  - A bug in the diffusion term in the freeflow models has been fixed.

    carried out for the models that were only isothermal before, namely, 1p, 3p
    and richards. Tests have been written and are provided in test/implicit. In
    order to keep the number of subfolders bearable, isothermal as well as
    thermal tests are gathered in the model folders "1p", "1p2c", ..., "3p3c",
    "mpnc", "richards" (without the "ni") and the corresponding "ni"-folders

  - All implicit porous-media models (except 2pdfm) are now able to run on grids
    with dim < dimWorld. In implicit/1p, four new tests are added that run the

  - Revised and fixed restart capability for the multidomain models.

  - A gnuplot interface has been added (works only with CMake). With
    this interface it is possible to plot material laws (like in the 2p2cni test),
    or to generate live-updating output (like in test_2cnistokes2p2cni).
    The gnuplot interface reads analytical functions, data file or data arrays.

  - The fuzzycompare script for automatic testing has been improved. Instead of
    printing only the first deviation from the reference solution, it now
    prints the maximum deviation in each field/variable.

* DEPRECATED BUILD SYSTEM: DuMu<sup>x</sup> 2.7 will be the last release which can be built
945
    with the Autotools based build system. It is deprecated and will be removed
946
    for DuMu<sup>x</sup> 2.8. We encourage the change towards CMake, especially with the
947
948
949
    upcoming DUNE 2.4.
    The warning can be suppressed with --disable-dumux-deprecated-autotools

* IMMEDIATE INTERFACE CHANGES not allowing/requiring a deprecation period:
  - Before, the "heatCapacity" function in the spatial parameters and volume
    variables of the implicit nonisothermal models was a misnomer, since it
    returned an effective quantity, namely,
    heatCapacity*density*(1 - porosity) in [J/(K m^3)].
    Except for mpnc, which resulted in an additional inconsistency.
    Corresponding to the decision documented in FS#216, the function has been
    renamed to "solidHeatCapacity" and returns always the "true" (non-effective)
    heat capacity in [J/(kg K)]. This requires an additional function
    "solidDensity" which returns the mass density of the porous matrix.
    Moreover, the functions "thermalConductivitySolid/Fluid" are renamed to
    "solid/fluidThermalConductivity". The decision to prepend with "solid/fluid"
    rather than to append is motivated by consistency with components and fluid
    systems, where "gas" and "liquid" are always prepended to the corresponding
    function names.
    Therefore, it might be necessary to adapt your thermal solid parameters in
    the spatialparams file such that they offer functions "solidHeatCapacity",
    "solidDensity" and "solidThermalConductivity". See
    test/implicit/2p2c/injectionspatialparams.hh for an example.

  - Due to the change in the Newton terminology (see above), there exist two
    backward-compatibility breakages:
    . If a model re-implements the function "relativeErrorDof", it has to be
      renamed to "relativeShiftAtDof". See dumux/implicit/implicitmodel.hh for
      an example.

    . If a NewtonController re-implements the function "newtonUpdateRelError",
      it has to be renamed to "newtonUpdateShift". See
      dumux/nonlinear/newtoncontroller.hh for an example.

  - For the non-isothermal porous media models, the energy equation is
    implemented in a more generic way for all models in
    dumux/implicit/nonisothermal. The existing TypeTag names like TwoPNI stay
    the same. If a new non-isothermal model should be used, it is important
    to NOT include anything from the old model-specific implementation like
    from dumux/implicit/2pni, but to include from the model folder without the
    "ni". See test/implicit/2pni for details. In principle, any isothermal
    porous media model can be enhanced with the energy equation. Ideally, only
    the corresponding property files have to be augmented. See
    dumux/implicit/2p/2ppropert*.hh for details. The 1p2c model already has
    been enhanced, the remaining models will follow in 2.7.

  - The AMG backend is based directly on dune-istl now. No PDELab is required
    anymore. The tests so far exhibit an improved robustness. Thanks to Markus
    Blatt for the work.

  - The multidomain models can now be used with the 2.3 release versions of the
    DUNE core modules and dune-multidomaingrid, and the 2.0 release versions
    of dune-pdelab and dune-multidomain. See test/multidomain/README for
    details.

  - In the fully implicit mpnc model, a further specialization allows now to
    describe two-phase flow with two energy equations.

  - The free flow models now include the component enthalpy fluxes transported
    by diffusion processes (h^k D grad x), which was not considered before.

  - UMFPack is a new direct linear solver and can be use as a drop-in
    replacement for SuperLU. Some users claim a speed-up up to a factor of
    seven. We know cases where it was 10% slower, so please measure for your
    problems.

  - The 3p3cni model now also uses an effective thermal conductivity model
    (ETCM). The ETCM is easily exchangeable. The default one is
    ThermalConductivitySomerton, which is implemented in
    dumux/material/fluidmatrixinteractions/3p. The ETCM requires that 3p3cni
    spatial parameters provide a function thermalConductivitySolid instead of
    matrixHeatFlux. See test/implicit/3p3cni/columnxylolspatialparams.hh for
    details. Moreover, the employed fluid system has to actually implement the
    function thermalConductivity. See
    dumux/material/fluidsystems/h2oairxylenefluidsystem.hh for details.

    to use a new non-isothermal model, the ETCM has to be adapted. See
    material/fluidmatrixinteractions/2p/thermalconductivitysomerton.hh for
    details.

  - Fully implicit mpnc model: in order to account for the possibility of using
    two energy equations, the boolean property EnableKineticEnergy has been
    changed to the integer property NumEnergyEquations.

1144
    the nc models are capapable of using both mass and mole fractions.

* IMPORTANT NOTES:
  - If the current trunk version of DUNE (2.3) is used, the co2 and co2ni tests
    require that the DUNE_GRID_EXPERIMENTAL_GRID_EXTENSIONS flag is set. This
    flag is needed in order to be able to use the function boundaryId(). An
    error is thrown during compilation if the flag is not set. For reference see
    the commented part in optim.opts and debug.opts.

1170
1171
  - All two-component models (1p2c, 2p2c, 2p2cni, co2, co2ni) can now be used
    with either mole or mass fractions. The property useMoles has to be set in
1172
    the problem file and the boundary conditions have to be choosen accordingly.
1173
1174
1175
    . 1p2c, 2p2c, 2p2cni use MOLE fractions by default.
    . co2, co2ni use MASS fractions by default.

    each model is provided in test/geomechanics:
    . elastic: linear elasticity equations that account only for the solid
               mechanics.
    . el1p2c:  poroelasticity equations for one solid and one fluid phase, where
               the fluid phase is admitted to consist of two components.
    . el2p:    poroelasticity equations for one solid phase and two immiscible
               fluid phases.

  - The MPNC model now allows to drop the assumptions of local thermal and/or
    chemical equilibrium. Dropping the local chemical equilibrium assumption
    leads to mole fractions in different phases that are not determined via
    equilibrium relations. If the local thermal equilibrium assumption is
    dropped, phases (fluids and solid) are locally allowed to have different
    temperatures. See test/implicit/mpnc/test_boxmpnckinetic for an example.

  - A fully-implicit three-phase immiscible model has been added. The headers
    are contained in dumux/implicit/3p, tests are provided in test/implicit/3p.

1203
1204

  - The handling of Dirichlet boundary conditions for the fully-implicit cell-
    centered models has been improved. Now, the conditions are evaluated at the
    centers of the corresponding boundary faces. In general, they are
    incorporated into the local residual in a weak sense. Only for mixed
    Dirichlet/Neumann conditions and for the MPNC model, they still are
    incorporated in a strong sense.
1208

1209

  - The sequential models can use a sub-timestepping in the transport scheme, if
    the property "SubCFLFactor" is chosen smaller than "CFLFactor", which in
    that case specifies the CFL factor used in the pressure equation.
1212
1213
1214

  - All fully-implicit porous-media models now provide the possibility to write
    the velocities to the VTK output. This can be achieved by setting the
1215
    parameter "AddVelocity" of the group "Vtk" or the corresponding property
1216
1217
    "VtkAddVelocity." See test/implicit/1p2c for an example.

    have been replaced by more generic ones. See the deprecation listings below
    or FS#194 for details.
