So you made it through another Symscape April Fools' prank? I hope you weren't fooled into thinking that Esperanto was really mandated to be the new European language. Anyway, it's been another eventful month at Symscape with the big news being that our partner, Nimbis Services, has released their Caedium CFD Accelerator cloud service. Also we've posted another tantalizing sneak peek of Caedium v4 along with our regular blog posts.
The next version of Caedium is taking shape and, after finalizing its exciting new features, we concluded that the next release is not a mere minor version, but more worthy of a fully fledged major version. So, no more talk of Caedium v3.1, instead get ready for Caedium v4.0! As with the build up to any new Caedium release, we are providing sneak peeks of new capabilities. The twist this time around is that the sneak peeks are interspersed with our regular blog posts - see whether you can spot which ones are which :-)

The next release of Caedium (v3.1) is progressing well, so I thought this month would be a good moment for a sneak peek. Are you ready for our latest poll results and the launch of a new poll? Great, then you won't be disappointed. Also catch up on all my latest blog posts.

I trust you've had a good start to the new year - primed and ready for some Symscape news no doubt. We are hard at work on the next version of Caedium (v3.1) and as part of that effort you can read about the new release of our Windows GPL source code patch for the latest version of OpenFOAM® (v2.1.x). Also check out my latest blog posts.
It's holiday season again, so before the festivities begin here's your last Symscape update for 2011. The goodies that await include a new article on using CFD for concept design analysis, news of an art exhibit featuring a Caedium CFD simulation, and my latest blog posts. Thanks for your support and we look forward to satisfying your CFD needs in 2012.

With all the excitement of last month's Caedium v3.0 release over, now it's time to get back to earth. More accurately it should be back to sea, with a new RANS Flow example of the air flow over a sail yacht. Also back is the usual stream of blog posts.

The wait is over. Caedium v3.0 is complete and eager to take your CFD simulations to the max. We have leaked a steady stream of Caedium v3.0 sneak peeks in recent newsletters, but now it's here I can summarize the release in three phrases – hybrid CFD modeling, cloud computing and a whole lot more. We've also added three new tips to help you with the new features. So read up on what to expect and then satisfy your inner CFD geek with Caedium v3.0.

Are you interested in the preparations for the next release of Caedium (v3)? If so, then you'll be pleased to read about the update to our free Windows source code patch for the latest version of OpenFOAM® (v2.0.x). Also we have news on the new release of our free GPU linear solver library, ofgpu (v0.2) for OpenFOAM v2.0.x. And, as always, keep reading for my latest blog posts.

The next release of Caedium (v3) is progressing well, and we are almost at the feature freeze point. This month we have a sneak peek of our new double-sided face modeling capability. In other news we were thrilled to be recognized by Microsoft in their Partner of the Year awards. And to round out this monthly update we have a varied selection of new blog posts.
