The OpenFOAM Foundation needs €100k to fund its activities in 2017. We aim to improve software quality, targeting a 50% reduction in unresolved OpenFOAM issues. In particular, we want to repair the following areas of OpenFOAM, which requires significant code refactoring and/or rewriting: AMI, ACMI and cyclic interfaces; heat transfer, including CHT; particles and tracking (Lagrangian); sources and constraints (fvOptions). We propose that 20 companies pool €5k each reach our target. Please contact us about funding OpenFOAM in 2017.
OpenFOAM is now packaged for Ubuntu 16.10, codename yakkety. The deb pack, openfoam4, is distributed from the OpenFOAM Foundation download repository and includes the latest bug fixes released with OpenFOAM version 4.1.
The packaged build of OpenFOAM-dev for Ubuntu 14.04LTS and 16.04LTS now includes object libraries for Scotch 6 to support mesh redistribution when running snappyHexMesh in parallel.
The OpenFOAM Foundation, which licenses and distributes OpenFOAM free and open source to the the public, is pleased to announce the upgrade of its website at https://openfoam.org.
