CHANGES in PETSc 2.1.1 (see new features)

General:

AO (Application Orderings):

TS (Timestepping Solvers):

DMMG

SNES (Nonlinear Solvers):

SLES (Linear Solvers):

KSP (Krylov Subspace Methods):

PC (Preconditioners):

MAT (Matrices):

DA (Distributed Arrays):

In order to set the grid sizes with -da_grid_x, -da_grid_y, -da_grid_z one must pass in negative values for the M, N, and P arguments in the call to DACreateXX(). If values are not set from the options database then the absolute value of the M,N,P is used as the default.

VEC (Vectors):

IS (Index Sets):

General:

PetscOptionsGetDouble() is now PetscOptionsGetReal()

Draw (Graphics):

System:

Error Handling:

Event Logging:

Logging functionality is completely reworked. Now one can register new stages, classes and events. Every event is associated with a class. So, users would have to create a class for all userevents.

Fortran Interface:
