OpenCFD® released OpenFOAM® 1.7, which consolidates the features of the git version OpenFOAM 1.6.x in the new release, under the GNU GPL 3 license. A summary of the new features can be found here, while more details are available in the release notes of the code. The new version can be downloaded from the web-page at this link.
Differently from the previous releases, OpenFOAM 1.7 is distributed in binary form only for Debian/Ubuntu systems, while for other Linux distributions only the source code is available. No pre-compiled, platform-independent binary package is made available. As usual, however, the code has been tested on the latest stable releases of openSUSE and Ubuntu, and compiles without difficulties on openSUSE 11.2.
This offering is not approved or endorsed by OpenCFD Limited, the producer of the OpenFOAM software and owner of the OPENFOAM® and OpenCFD® trade marks.
