New version, copyright, and license- Comments (1)

We started the process of releasing the long awaited ROMS/TOMS new version:

  • We have been working on the copyright and other legal aspects of ROMS/TOMS for awhile. The new version will now be distributed with the following copyright:

    Copyright (c) 2002-2007 The ROMS/TOMS Group
    Licensed under a MIT/X style license
    See License_ROMS.txt

    Many thanks to Chris Sherwood and Rich Signell (USGS) for their help with the copyright and open source license.

  • ROMS/TOMS will be distributed primarily using subversion version control (svn). In the future the user will be able to download the latest version of the model and/or frozen version(s) from our new server by just typing a single UNIX command, like:

    svn checkout MyLocalDir

    or using any GUI interface like esvn (Unix), RapidSVN (cross-platform) or TortoiseSVN (Windows).

    The ROMS svn project managment and bug/issue tracking system is:

    The new ROMS sever hosting will be open to the community in few days. We are currently migrating all services and testing. The new server is a Linux quad completely dedicated to ROMS business: web sites, svn and trac, wikiROMS, developers blog, and forum.

  • All files were modified to include the copyright and license notice. I also added the svn keyword id. For example, get_state.F looks like:
    #include "cppdefs.h"
          SUBROUTINE get_state (ng, model, msg, ncname, IniRec, Tindex)
    !svn $Id: get_state.F 8 2007-02-06 19:00:29Z arango $

  • Converted distribute.F into a module to allow module procedure interface to distinguish scalar and vector operations:
         INTERFACE mp_bcastf
            MODULE PROCEDURE mp_bcastf_s
            MODULE PROCEDURE mp_bcastf_v
          END INTERFACE mp_bcastf

    This fixes a problem with Absoft Pro Fortran10 compilers. Many thanks to Brian Powell for reporting this.

  • Fixed few bugs in several drivers that have risen during the compilation of all of then.
  • This new version was committed into svn and frozen as ROMS/TOMS 2.3 in the tags directory. The Version file is:

  1. There’s a bug in the version just released: with MPI, time profile percentages reported near the end of output are too low by a factor equal to the number of processors.

    (I might or might not get around to hunting this bug down today. I’ve only checked nonlinear mode so far.)
