Release of DUNE 1.0

We are pleased to announce the release of Version 1.0 of the “Distributed and Unified Numerics Environment” (DUNE).

DUNE is a modular toolbox for solving partial differential equations (PDEs) with grid-based methods. It supports the easy implementation of methods like Finite Elements (FE), Finite Volumes (FV), and also Finite Differences (FD).

DUNE is free software licensed under the GPL (version 2) with a so-called “runtime exception”. This licence is similar to the one under which the libstdc++ libraries are distributed. Thus it is possible to use DUNE even in proprietary software.
