    99To fix compiler warnings with g++ 8, '''''the state file of the phymir optimizer has been altered'''''. This implies that state files from older versions of the code are no longer accepted. Continuing an optimization run with a different version of Cloudy is not recommended in any case.

     11'''''All TABLE STAR commands now work directly on the ascii file.''''' This means that you now need to have the *.ascii versions of the SED grid files in your data search path and can remove the compiled *.mod files. Compiling *.ascii files is still supported (though it is now optional) using the same commands as in previous Cloudy versions. This command now produces index files with names ending in *.idx. These files help speed up reading the ascii file and are strongly recommended for large grids. Note that despite the simple appearance of these files, they are (in principle) still platform dependent. The big advantage of this setup is that there is no longer a dependence on the frequency mesh, so '''''you do not need to recompile the ascii grids when you change the frequency mesh.''''' Compiling grids that are not in the standard Cloudy format (e.g. Starburst99 output) is still mandatory.
