Subject: ANN: SimPy (Simulation in Python) 2.0.1 release
Newsgroups: gmane.comp.python.announce
Date: Wednesday 8th April 2009 10:50:01 UTC (over 7 years ago)
We are happy to announce the release of SimPy 2.0.1, a bug-fix release of
version 2.0.

Download from: 
https://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=62366&release_id=674197

Your feedback (errors found, proposals for changes, etc.) is requested,
using the SimPy Users Mailing List (simpy-users {at}lists.sourceforge.net).

SimPy 2.0.1 requires Python 2.3 or later. It does not yet run under Python
3.
The release of a SimPy version for Python 3 is planned for later in 2009,
depending on the development progress of Python 3.

What is SimPy?
------------------------
SimPy is a process-based discrete-event simulation language based on
standard Python and released under the GNU LGPL. 

It provides the modeller with components of a simulation model. These
include processes, for active components like customers, messages, and
vehicles, and

resources, for passive components that form limited capacity congestion
points like servers, checkout counters, and tunnels. It also provides
monitor variables to aid in gathering statistics.

Simpy comes with extensive documentation, tutorials and many example
models.

SimPy provides plotting and a GUI capability "out of the box".

What is new in SimPy 2.0.1?
-------------------------------------------

Bug fixes
==========

- Repaired a number of coding errors in several
  models in the SimPyModels folder.
  
- Repaired SimulationRT.py bug introduced by recoding for the OO API.

- Repaired errors in sample programs in documents:

  * Simulation with SimPy - In Depth Manual
  * SimPy's Object Oriented API Manual
  * Simulation With Real Time Synchronization Manual
  * SimPlot Manual
  * Publication-quality Plot Production With Matplotlib Manual
  
Additions
============

- Tests for real time behavior (testRT_Behavior.py and
  testRT_Behavior_OO.py in folder SimPy).

Acknowledgements
----------------------------
The development of SimPy 2.0.1 has benefitted tremendously from the
excellent, extensive contributions by
Fabrice Benichou. Thanks, Fabrice! You have been a great editor! Keep
working with us!

The many other contributions of the SimPy user and developer communities
are of course also gratefully acknowledged.

Download, test, enjoy and give us feedback!

Happy SimPying!
