- The tutorial has been replaced by the new module `dumux-course` which is
  accessible at https://git.iws.uni-stuttgart.de/dumux-repositories/dumux-course.
  We recommend new users and also users experienced with DuMuX 2.X to clone
  the course and have a look at the exercises in there.

- DuMuX 3.0 is based on Dune 2.6 and is expected to run with the current Dune master.
  We will try to keep the compatibility with the Dune master
  as long as it is technically feasible and our resources allow it.

- DuMuX 3.0 requires at least GCC 4.9 or Clang 3.5 in their C++-14 mode.
  However, we suggest to use newer compiler versions, as we cannot test against all previous compiler versions.

- For employing corner-point grids by means of opm-grid, the OPM release 2018.10 has to be used.

## 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.
- __TypeTag templates:__ Implementers of code in DuMuX 3.0 are advised to avoid TypeTag as a template argument for class templates.
  Many classes in the DuMuX 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

- __MPFA schemes:__ The new design of the DuMuX 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 DuMuX model and
  also works on surface grids. More schemes will be added in the future.
- __Box-dfm:__ The `2pdfm` model from version 2.12 has been generalized such that it can be used on any DuMuX model and in both two and three dimensions.
- __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.
- __Solid systems:__ DuMuX 3.0 introduces solid systems similar to fluid systems but for solid components. This allows a consistent
  implementation of mineralization models including reactions, dissolution, precipitation and other processes altering the solid
  phase of the porous medium.
- __Multidomain:__ DuMuX 3.0 introduces a new multidomain framework which does no longer depend on `dune-multidomain` and can be used for the coupling
  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
  dimensionalities. The implementation is such that any of the existing DuMuX models can be used in the subdomains, while the data and functionality
  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.
  The free-flow models in DuMuX 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.

    - DuMuX 2.9 is expected to run based on either Dune 2.4 or Dune 3.0. We will
      try to keep the compatibility with Dune 3.0 as long as it is technically
      feasible and our resources allow it. If you want to use Dumux multidomain
      models, you have to stick with the Dune 2.4 core and specific versions of
      other modules, see `test/multidomain/README` for details.

    - The ALUGrid stand-alone library cannot be used any longer. Use the module
      [dune-alugrid](https://gitlab.dune-project.org/extensions/dune-alugrid)
      instead. Both the `releases/2.4` branch and the `master` should work.

    - The above is not true if you like to run a sequential MPFA model on an
      `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
      after switching to Dumux 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 ...]
      ```
      or
      ```
      find . -name '*.[ch][ch]' -exec bash ../dumux/bin/fix_includes.sh {} \;
      ```

      The benefits are hopefully:
        + A clearer structure in terms of the problems that you want to apply Dumux
          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
          ```
          #include <dumux/multidomain/2cnistokes2p2cni/2cnistokes2p2cnilocaloperator.hh>
          ```
          with the new
          ```

      The structure change is reflected in the `test` folder:
        + The tests from`test/implicit/particular_model` have been moved to
          `test/porousmediumflow/particular_model/implicit`. For example,
          `test/implicit/2p` has been moved to `test/porousmediumflow/2p/implicit`.

        + 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.

        + If you have cloned the Dumux Git repository and have local changes in the
          folders `test/implicit` or `test/decoupled`, you can expect merge
          conflicts for your next `git pull`. You can either deal with these
          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 Dumux model portfolio. See `test/porousmediumflow/2pminc/implicit` for
      details.

    - 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
      source is a source term specified at any point location in e.g. kg/s. Dumux
      will compute the correct control volume the source belongs to for you. 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.

  - DuMuX 2.8 is expected to run based on either Dune 2.3 or Dune 2.4. However,
    no attempt has been made to fix the warnings arising from the deprecation of
    EntityPointer in Dune 2.4. This will be made during the next release cycle.
    Moreover, using the multidomain models based on Dune 2.4 is currently only
    possible by patching dune-multidomaingrid. See test/multidomain/README for

  - 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.

    zeroeq turbulence models with flow in a porous medium have been added.

  - 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.

  - A lot of work has been devoted to improving the testing environment, adding
    new tests, restructuring the handbook and improving the documentation.

    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
    have been deleted.

  - 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
    1p test problem on 1d-3d and 2d-3d Alberta grids with box and cell-centered,

    "residual reduction". This is particularly important, if corresponding
    parameters or properties are set, see below.

  - The geomechanics ElTwoPModel runs in parallel now. This is made possible by
    a dedicated solver, the El2PAMGBackend which has to be set for the property
    LinearSolver in the problem file. See test/geomechanics/el2p for details.

  - 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: DuMuX 2.7 will be the last release which can be built
    with the Autotools based build system. It is deprecated and will be removed
    for DuMuX 2.8. We encourage the change towards CMake, especially with the
    upcoming DUNE 2.4.

* 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.

733

  - 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.

    added. The stokes2c and stokes2cni are now DEPRECATED and will be kicked
    out by the next release. Instead generalized stokesnc and stokesncni
    models are introduced. Unlike 2c models the transport equations in
897
    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.

923
924
  - 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
925
    the problem file and the boundary conditions have to be choosen accordingly.
926
927
928
    . 1p2c, 2p2c, 2p2cni use MOLE fractions by default.

    of Melanie Darcis. The models are located in dumux/geomechanics, a test for
    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.

955
956
957
958
959

  - 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.
961

962
963
964
  - 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.
965
966
967

  - 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
968
    parameter "AddVelocity" of the group "Vtk" or the corresponding property
969
970
    "VtkAddVelocity." See test/implicit/1p2c for an example.

  - Misleading names in the fully-implicit models that still contained "b/Box"
    have been replaced by more generic ones. See the deprecation listings below
    or FS#194 for details.

1081
===================================================

* IMPROVEMENTS and ENHANCEMENTS:
1082
  - A fully implicit two-phase discrete-fracture-matrix model has been added,
1083
1084
1085
1086
1087
1088
1089
    see test/implicit/2pdfm.

  - Almost all porous media fully implicit models now can either use a
    vertex-centered (box) or a cell-centered spatial discretization. The choice
    of the spatial discretization method is controlled by deriving the problem
    type tag either from BoxModel or CCModel. This allows for a uniform problem
    description, as long as the boundaryTypesAtPos and dirichletAtPos methods
1090
1091
1092
1093
    can be used. By evaluating the compile-time property ImplicitIsBox, it is
    easily possible to separately handle the different discretizations inside
    am common method. See the tests in test/implicit for examples.
    Correspondingly, the directory structure has been adapted.

  - A backend for the ISTL AMG solver has been included, based on the
1110
1111
1112
1113
1114
    corresponding DUNE-PDELab backends. It can be used for the fully
    implicit and the decoupled models, see test_*1pwithamg in
    test/implicit/1p and test_impeswithamg in test/decoupled/2p.
    DUNE-PDELab and possibly DUNE-ISTL have to be patched, see the file
    README in the patches directory.
1115

1116
1117
1118
  - The decoupled models have been parallelized, see test_impeswithamg in
    test/decoupled/2p. They work in parallel only if the AMGBackend is used
    as linear solver. No dynamic loadbalancing can be done yet.
1119
1120

  - The MPNC model can use either the most wetting or the most non-wetting phase
1121
    pressure as primary variable. This is controlled via the property
1122
1123
    "PressureFormulation."

1124
  - The table of available parameters has been improved, see

  - The matrixHeatFlux(...) and boundaryMatrixHeatFlux(...) methods in the spatial
1137
    parameters of nonisothermal implicit twophase models have been removed.
1138
1139
    Instead, the computation of the effective thermal conductivity has been sourced
    out to the fluidmatrixinteractions in a separate file
1140
    dumux/material/fluidmatrixinteractions/thermalconductivitysomerton.hh, which
1141
    can be exchanged. The spatial parameters file needs a method
1142
1143
1144
    thermalConductivitySolid(...), where the thermal conductivity of the solid
    material only is specified. The rest is computed in the respective
    flux variables.

Differences Between DuMuX 2.1 and DuMuX 2.2
===================================================

1202
* IMPROVEMENTS and ENHANCEMENTS:
1203
  - Two new fully implicit models dedicated to simulate compositional
1204
1205
1206
1207
    (non-isothermal) CO2-brine systems have been added, together with
    corresponding components and a fluid system. See test/boxmodels/co2(ni)
    for details. These tests also illustrate the usage of element and vertex
    parameters as well as boundary ids provided by DGF files for setting
1208
1209
1210
    permeability and porosity as well as boundary conditions.

  - Decoupled Models: An h-adaptive model using an MPFA L-method was added
1211
    that simulates 2p and 2p2c flow on unstructured grids with hanging nodes
1212
    in two dimensions. See test/decoupled/2p(2c) for details.
1213

1214
1215
1216
  - All fully implicit porous media models are now capable of employing
    the Forchheimer equation as an alternative to the commonly used
    Darcy law. See test_forchheimer*p in test/boxmodels/mpnc for details.
1217

1218
1219
  - The Stokes models are now able to simulate the full Navier-Stokes
    equations for momentum transport. See test/freeflow/navierstokes
1220
    for details.
1221

1222
1223
1224
1225
1226
  - The fully implicit models have been (partially) generalized to allow
    for a cell-centered discretization in addition to the default
    vertex-centered (box) one. Cell-centered fully implicit 2p and 2p2c
    models are already available in the developers part of Dumux. Further
    generalizations and the inclusion in the stable part are planned for
1227
1228
    Dumux 2.3.

1229
1230
1231
  - Several model-specific features and classes have been unified, like
    the calculation of the Darcy velocity for the fully implicit flux
    variables, or the temperature, gravity, and spatial parameter
1232
    functionalities of the fully implicit problems. Moreover, many
1233
1234
1235
1236
    names have been made more consistent. This includes the naming
    and grouping of several parameters and corresponding properties,
    the indexing of phases and components, and the preference of the
    partial name "params" over "parameters." For details, see also the
1237
    deprecations listed below.
1238

1239
  - Added compiler support for GCC 4.7 and Clang 3.1.

* IMMEDIATE INTERFACE CHANGES not allowing a deprecation period:
  - From Dune 2.2 on, FieldVector::size is a method rather than an enum value.
    It is mandatory to add the flag --enable-fieldvector-size-is-method to the
    CONFIGURE_FLAGS. An example is given in the opts file dumux/debug.opts.
1245
1246
  - Implicit models: TwoPIndices, TwoPNIIndices, and RichardsIndices
    additionally get TypeTag as template parameter. If the Indices are not
1247
    obtained via the property, this has to be adapted.
1248

1249
1250
1251
1252
1253
  - Implicit models: All model-specific computeFlux functions in
    ...localresidual.hh have to get an additional bool parameter onBoundary,
    which is by default set to false. If outflow conditions should
    be properly implemented, also the constructor of the flux variables in
    ...fluxvariables.hh has to get the additional argument and the
1254
1255
    class has to be adapted to deal with boundary faces. See FS#117 and #99
    for details.

    FVSpatialParametersOneP, dumux/material/spatialparameters/fvspatialparameters1p.hh.
1278

1279
1280
  - Due to the unification of flux variables for the fully implicit models,
    some model-specific flux variables have become obsolete:

Notable Differences Between DuMuX 2.0 and DuMuX 2.1
1385
===================================================
1386

1387
1388
- The thermodynamics framework has been overhauled:
  - The programming interfaces for fluid systems, fluid states and
1389
    components has been formalized and cleaned up.
Klaus Mosthaf's avatar
Klaus Mosthaf committed
1390
  - Fluid systems now have the option to cache computationally
1391
    expensive parameters if they are needed for several relations.
1392
  - Fluid systems are not charged with the computation of the
1393
1394
    chemical equilibrium anymore.
  - Fluid states are now centralized infrastructure instead of being

    model-specific.
  - Constraint solvers (which simplify solving thermodynamic
    constraints) have been introduced.
- Outflow boundary conditions have been implemented for the
  fully-implicit models 1p2c, 2p2c(ni) and stokes(2cni).
- The problem and spatial parameter base classes also provide optional
  model-independent interfaces. These methods only get the position in
  global coordinates as argument and are named *AtPos()
  (e.g. boundaryTypesAtPos()). This allows an easy transfer of problem
  definitions between implicit and sequential models.
- The following fully-implicit models have been added:
1406
  - 3p3c, 3p3cni: Isothermal and non-isothermal three-phase,
1407

- The sequentially-coupled models have been overhauled:
  - A common structure for cell centered standard finite volume
    implementations has been introduced.
  - The data structures where overhauled to avoid large clumps of data
    in large-scale simulations: Each cell stores data in its own
    storage object.
  - The too large assemble() methods have been split into submethods
    getStorage(), getFlux() etc. By this, inheritance of classes has
    been improved and code duplication was reduced.
  - The conceptual seperation of the "VariableClass" (central
    infrastructure), data storage, transport model and pressure model
    has been improved.
  - More of infrastructure is now shared with the implicit models
    (e.g. the BoundaryTypes). This results in significant performance
    improvements and makes debugging easier.
- The 2padaptive sequentially coupled model has been added. This model
  implements a grid-adaptive finite volume scheme for immiscible
  two-phase flow in porous media on non-conforming quadrilateral
  grids.

- The dependencies for the external dune-pdelab and boost packages
  have been removed.

- The build system has received major improvements:
  - There is now much better test coverage of build-time dependencies
    on packages for the default autotools-based build system.
  - Experimental support for building DuMuX using CMake has been much
    improved. In the long run, CMake is projected to become the
    default build system.
- All headers can now be included without any preconditions.
- DuMuX now compiles without warnings if the -pedantic flag used for GCC.
1444

- Specifying run-time parameters is now possible. The mechanism allows
  to use parameter files or to specify parameters directly on the
1446

1448
1449
1450
1451
  command line and fallback parameter input files have been added for
  each test application.  As a consequence, applications can be run
  now without specifying any command line arguments.
- The DuMuX property system has been fine-tuned:
  - Encapsulating property names with the PTAG() is no longer required
    for the GET_PROP* macros (but is still allowed).
1452
  - Setting property defaults has been deprecated.

  - All properties defined for a type tag can now be printed. Also,
    their value and the location in the source where they where
    specified is included in the output.
- Using quadruple precision math has been made possible for GCC 4.6 or newer:
  - To use it, the configure option '--enable-quad' needs to be added
    and the type of scalar values needs to be changed to 'quad'. This
    can be done in the problem file using
1460

1461
        SET_TYPE_PROP(YourProblemTypeTag, Scalar, quad);

    It should be noted, that performance is very poor when using
    quadruple precision arithmetic. This feature is primarily meant as
