Countdown to next release

This is a to-do page for the next release. These are specific tasks we should do.

The GoldVersionToDo page has the general steps for creating a gold version of the code.

where do we want to store the output from the test suite? The gradj ftp site appears dead. Really should be on nublado.

Merge the chianti branch onto trunk before creating c13_branch, but understand why func_test_grid.out does not repeat - checkall error says "PROBLEM: the output in func_test_grid.out did not repeat exactly func_test_grid.out: returned with FAILURE status"

run programs, review commands Peter had to comment out.

Merge the Romas branch onto the trunk before creating c13_branch

update copyright year to 2013

grain compile bug, ticket #221 #233

There are the problems with BLR calculations. The most recent botches look likely to be symptomatic of this. I'm not sure we can plan to address them in any time-boxed fashion; the trunk is no worse than where c10 is in this regard, and better in a lot of other ways. These have been moved to the "radiative transfer" milestone in the tickets.

the changes to the grid command will need to be accepted de facto; otherwise re-implementing the associated bug fixes and documentation updates would be too time consuming - putting them in a beta/release candidate may get some usability feedback on them from users 'outside the fence'.

Maybe we should plan to make the beta in one week, on the nice round October 15th? I could get in the escape probability fixes by then. Then make the release candidate Nov. 15 or Dec. 1, and release one or two months later? I very much like the idea of actually getting it out in the month of January.

silence warnings about chemistry at startup - added test on release so print will not occur

Merge the optnl branch - only documentation and code changes to make atom xx-like agree with documentation.

coronal dr bug documented in hazy, but still there

ortho para issue with save species - for now document that we only report

Chianti loose ends

hazy1 section 12.2, g-bar approximation, copy section from cooling function paper explaining what we do

section 15.46, Save Chianti, should give energy in wavenumbers

section 18.14.21 set gbar of - what do we do about forbidden transitions? should use something like 1

images for the quick start guide, hazy 1 & 2

the quick start guide has shown something indicating speed. Racehorses, fighter jets, speed skaters. Wonder if we could get an image of a 8 on the Cam? The Bumps? I tried to google up such an image but they were mostly copyrighted. Wonder if Robin might have a way to get something we could use? Or we could ask Andy or Paul Hewett.

for hazy 1 and 2 we have tried to show off something that cloudy can do, that people may not appreciate. there have been x-ray and IR spectra. Any ideas?? The new thing we have now is much better Fe x-ray spectra thanks to chianti. An x-ray image showing L-shell Fe lines and H&He-like O and C might be impressive.

we have not been providing compiled copies of hazy 3 so maybe it does not need an update.
