ASPECT Newsletter #187

Hello everyone!

This is ASPECT newsletter #187.
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:

#5534: Improve initialization of variable (implemented by gassmoeller)
#5533: Adds an updated version of the Jupyter notebook tutorial for the onse… (implemented by ljhwang)
#5531: Add tests that combine an iterated Advection scheme with DG composition (implemented by anne-glerum)
#5530: Fastscape: Rename Qtrapez function, fix some warnings, and add stabilization flag. (implemented by Djneu; reviewed by tjhei)
#5528: Only set face properties for advection assemblers when method is fem (implemented by anne-glerum)
#5527: Remove declarations of functions that are not implemented. (implemented by bangerth; reviewed by tjhei)
#5526: Restrict the types accepted by has_matching_() and get_matching_(). (implemented by bangerth; reviewed by gassmoeller)
#5525: Fix a bibtex entry. (implemented by bangerth; reviewed by tjhei)
#5524: Bump actions/upload-artifact from 3 to 4 (implemented by dependabot[bot]; reviewed by tjhei)
#5523: Remove looping over fields in loop over fields in advection assembly (implemented by anne-glerum; reviewed by bangerth)
#5522: Tighten restrictions on when one can call plugin_type_matches()/get_plugin_as_type(). (implemented by bangerth; reviewed by gassmoeller)
#5520: Use the deepest initial lithostatic pressure on the bottom traction boundary (implemented by anne-glerum; reviewed by gassmoeller)
#5509: Update point_is_in_domain function (implemented by anne-glerum; reviewed by gassmoeller)

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

#5532 Using the DG limiter on composition in an iterative Advection scheme halts nonlinear convergence (opened)
#5529 No test with DG and iterative Advection solver scheme (opened)
