- Compiler support
- OpenFOAM-1.7.1 now compiles and optimises correctly using gcc-4.5.0 following the resolution of memory aliasing issues.
- Operating system support
- OpenFOAM-1.7.1 has been verified to run on OpenSuSE-11.3 using the system gcc-4.5.0 compiler.
Bug reporting The release of OpenFOAM-1.7.1 coincides with the release of the new bug reporting system.
