ASPECT Newsletter #120

Hello everyone!

This is ASPECT newsletter #120.
It automatically reports recently merged features and discussions about the ASPECT mantle convection code.

Below you find a list of recently proposed or merged features:

#3968: Add assert and maximum to viscosity computation (implemented by gassmoeller)
#3967: Use MappingQCache for curved cells if possible to speed up particle sort (implemented by gassmoeller; reviewed by jdannberg)
#3966: Better describe the years vs seconds issue. (implemented by bangerth; reviewed by bobmyhill)
#3965: Small clean-ups in the VoF postprocessor. (implemented by bangerth; reviewed by bobmyhill)
#3964: Add benchmark tests for experimental “melt visco plastic” material model (implemented by jperryhouts)
#3963: remove trailing whitespace, ensure single newline from source files (implemented by bobmyhill; reviewed by bangerth)
#3760: Reorder particle advection for use with mesh deformation (implemented by anne-glerum; reviewed by gassmoeller)

And this is a list of recently opened or closed discussions:

#3970 Adiabatic boundary get_data_component() function assert gives an error (opened)
#3969 Chunk geometry model gives different results when not centered around zero meridian (opened)
#3952 A self-adaptive boundary velocity plugin ? (closed)
