Dune 2.5.0 Released

Dune 2.5.0 has been released as an early Christmas gift. You can download the tarballs, checkout the v2.5.0 tag via Git, or get prebuilt packages from Debian unstable.

Included in the release are the core modules (dune-common, dune-geometry, dune-grid, dune-grid-howto, dune-istl, dune-localfunctions) and several modules from the staging area (dune-functions, dune-typetree, dune-uggrid).

Many deprecated features have been removed, including the Autotools build system, dune-grid’s EntityPointer and SGrid; some features have been moved to new extension modules (for example dune-alugrid and dune-grape). Dune now also requires a compiler supporting C++11 and parts of C++14 (as supported by gcc 4.9). Please refer to the release notes for a more detailed listing of what has changed in the new release.
