OpenFOAM | Ubuntu 24.04 LTS

OpenFOAM is now packaged for the latest long term support (LTS) version of Ubuntu.  The version is Ubuntu 24.04 LTS, codenamed noble, supported until April 2029.  The packs include

  • openfoam-dev: package of the development line of OpenFOAM, which includes major code changes that can break backward compatibility.
  • openfoam11: package created from the OpenFOAM-11 source repository that incorporates latest code fixes without breaking backward compatibility.

openfoam-dev and openfoam11 now install the standard paraview package on Ubuntu, rather that requiring any custom built version, e.g. paraviewopenfoam510.
