Enhancements and known issues resolved in ANSA
━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━
<Known issues resolved in ANSA>
Graphics
ANSA might abort launching when executed via VirtualGL on remote
environments.

GUI
ANSA would cease to respond, when loading specific types of .xml files.
Indicatively, such .xml files would contain GUI Settings saved with any
list windows(e.g. Properties, Materials) visible, affecting ANSA response
even upon initial launch.

Database Browser
Unexpected termination could occur upon deletion of solid elements
when deleted directly (e.g. through the Database Browser list of solids)
or indirectly (e.g. through the deletion 
of other containers like includes
or Model Containers).

Shell Mesh
Unexpected termination could occur when projecting points to open holes
via Project [Holes].

Pasting nodes that lie on boundary of volumes in light volume representation
mode via Grids > Paste [Auto] function would lead to erased volumes.

Laminates
Laminate Convert would occasionally lead to unexpected termination.

Optimization Tool
Unexpected termination could occur when Cross Sections were morphed
and recalculated during a DOE run, or when Simulate was used and the
Design Variables modified cross section 
thickness and shape.

<Enhancements in EPILYSIS>
NVH
DMIG coupling generation weighing factors would not be correct
when the coupled Fluid and Structure surfaces were parallel.

SOL200
Topometry optimization would stop in first cycle, when a PCOMP
property was used.

━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━
<Known issues resolved in META>
General
Certain settings in "Fraction Plot Options" of FRF Assembly might not be
initialized correctly after Ctrl+N.

Certain settings in Modal / FRF Correlation Tool would not reset to their
default values with Ctrl+N.

"Output in Unv58" settings under Modal Response would not be restored
correctly.

Read Results
PAM-CRASH MTOJNT elements, as well as PERMAS EKINMASS scalar
results, were not read correctly. Marc Element Type 84 was not read at all,
whereas unexpected termination could occur when 
reading Marc Logarithmic
Stress results.

NASTRAN
When multiple META sessions were using femzip NASTRAN models to
read results simultaneously, META could become unresponsive. In addition,
unexpected termination could occur when coordinates 
systems were defined
with mixed single and double precision.

States & Animation
Unexpected termination would occur when Time was shown on the Animation
Bar and the selected States Method was Interpolate.

Identification of Entities & Data
Parts identify function failed to exclusively identify the picked part in the GL
area and, consequently, indicate it in the list.

Math Operations on Field Data
Unexpected termination could occur when reading scalar nodal results
in Fourier Transformation for Abaqus.

NVH Calculators
FRF Assembly: When modal participations were requested for a single
component, with no connections, the calculated results would be zero.

Modal Response: If the method without large masses was used to calculate
enforced motion for ASCII modal models, the enforced motion displacement
at the excitation points was calculated as zero.

Project Files & METADB
Unexpected termination could occur when reading element thickness.

File Export
Unexpected termination could occur while exporting a video with animating
cycles.

GUI
Thanks to the "Compare Containers" option, available under the Context
Menu when selecting Parts, the properties and attributes of multiple Parts
can be successfully compared.

DM Schema Editor
Clicking OK in the "Accepted Values Editor" window would lead to
unexpected termination.

━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━
<Known issues resolved in ANSA>
General
Unexpected file size increase was encountered upon execution of 
File > Save as or File > Save visible, in combination with the changeset 
functionality.Through this fix, a reparation routine will now return the initial
file size, when opening affected ANSA databases.

ANSA_TRANSL.py: Running a pre- or post-output function with three
arguments would erroneously raise an exception and unexpected termination
would occur on Windows machines, when the script function session.Quit()
was used.

Data Management
Input model definition of a PLMXML, previously exported by ANSA, would
lead to erroneous hierarchy, in case of empty groups or in case of multiple top
level items.

Connections & Assembly
ANSA would unexpectedly terminate when selecting a Model Container with
hundreds thousands of elements as connectivity of a GEB or Connector,
while "highlight" was activated.

Unexpected termination would also occur upon connections realization,
when Node-to-Node FE Representation type (RBE2, CBAR, etc.) was
used on Linked Faces.

Shell Mesh
The Macros functionality has been enhanced, when the option Reconstruct
is active. Joining, now, two unmeshed Macro areas updates the segmentation
of the perimeters of the new Macro area, whereas joining one unmeshed and
one meshed Macro area can now successfully be performed.

Safety
The Dummy Marionette tool for Radioss has been enhanced in various
aspects, such as:

Imposed displacements come in the correct direction, whereas a relaxation
time parameter has been added. ANSA.defaults values of the tool are saved
in [tonne], [mm], [sec] units and, when reading from ANSA.defaults file,
values are converted to the tool's active units.

The tool allows from now on the selection of deformable nodes for the application
of the loads - functionality available also for LS-DYNA and Pam-Crash, apart from
Radioss.

Scripting
Various fatal error cases in TOPO-related functions have been combatted,
including:

Unexpected termination could occur, when other entities (instead of CONS)
were provided as input arguments to the base.ConsToCurves() function.

Unexpected termination could occur, when a script including the
base.CurvesCreateFillet() function was run in -b mode.

The return of the base.PickPointOnSurface() function would lack accuracy
and ANSA would unexpectedly terminate when the function was applied to
a Face instead of a list of Faces.

ELEMENTs
Differences in Eigenmodes would falsely be produced, due to the CQUAD8
bending curvature evaluation.

Output
Data Recovery results, like Forces and Stresses, would be inconsistent
in case of CTRIA6 with deleted edge nodes.

Furthermore, if elements of a fluid solid mesh consist of grids with the same
coordinates, a fatal error is issued and the elements are listed in the .f06 file.

Enhancements and known issues resolved in META
━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━
<Known issues resolved in META>
Abaqus
Thanks to the implementation of ABAQUS_RESULTS_SEARCH_PATH
<directory path> that can now be added in the META_post.defaults file,
when geometry is loaded from the *.inp file, the automatic file detection will
search in the specified directory.

NVH Calculators
In case of NASTRAN FRF Components, which contained Acceleration and
Displacement results, with the latter being only Pressure, the calculated
responses would be zero.

Decks
Various cases regarding reading of files were spotted and, consequently,
fixed:

Failures were reported, when reading results from Abaqus .odb files.

Paraview .vtu files with second order elements could not be loaded properly.

Ansys Phase results could be different when read alone or together with
Magnitude.

History Variables of LS-DYNA were not read correctly from .d3plot files
compressed with Femzip, in certain cases of big .d3plot files. Additionally,
time history result files (binouts) created from *CASE were not read at all,
whereas PID thickness was incorrect, when reading geometry from d3plot file.

Displacement results were not read correctly as scalar results through
NASTRAN HDF format.

TAITherm Results in EnSight format were not read at all.

Annotations
Unexpected termination could occur when trying to create an Annotation on
Window inside a 2D plot window, without any active plots.

Managing Curve Data
Non-Linear results from NASTRAN punch files were not loaded.

Reading time history results using Follow Nodes was not recorded correctly
in session.

Project File & METADB
Unexpected termination could occur upon saving a project file, after having
deleted some PIDs from the model.

Parts might be missing, when the Read mode included Geometry.

Database Browser
Abnormal termination might occur upon deletion of solid elements,
when deleted directly(e.g. through the Database Browser list of solids)
or indirectly (e.g. through the deletion 
of other containers such as,
includes or Model Containers).

Volume Mesh
Octree algorithm:Small areas are now identified more accurately and,
therefore, the quality of volume mesh in Cavity is now improved.

Hexa Block
Unexpected termination could occur if a database containing pentahedral boxes
was meshed by the "Mesh" function from the Hexablock list.

Compare Report
Report for Connection entities would not be generated correctly.

NASTRAN
Several issues regarding B.C. SETs and specifically HEADER have been
addressed, including:
- The OUTPUT keyword would not be written, upon Case Control Command
 execution.
- The activation/deactivation of SOL400 Steps via scripting for HEADER
 [New > Loadcase] would not function properly.

Scripting
Upon base.ConsToCurves() execution, unexpected termination could occur
in case other entities
-instead of CONS- were provided as input arguments to the function.

Decks - NASTRAN
META could cease to respond if multiple META sessions used femzip
NASTRAN models to read results simultaneously.

Unexpected termination could occur when coordinates were written with
single precision.

Decks - LS-DYNA
Reading geometry from *.d3plot files resulted in incorrect PID thickness.

Results would not be correct for partially loaded geometries.

Decks - TAITherm
Results in EnSight format would not be successfully read.

NVH Calculators - FRF Assembly
When modal participations were requested for a single component with
no connections, the calculated results would be falsely zero.

Curve Functions - Contribution Analysis
Session command for creating contribution analysis plots would not accept
curve ID ranges. Moreover, the fractions plots were not created correctly
if the curve list displayed 
the curves from all windows.

Enhancements and known issues resolved in in BETA_LM
━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━
<Enhancements in ANSA>
The capability to filter the licensed features, so as to idle, limit, allow or deny 
their usage,based on user, group of users, IP address or hostname, has been
introduced.

The new time-based licensing scheme offers flexibility through a time-based
batch credit system, designed to serve a huge number of small jobs
(e.g. ANSA/META scripts in a DOE study).

New potential arises with the Virtual Machine support ? as well as with the
teamed network interface support.

Abundant developments took place providing enhanced performance, better
stability and enriched reporting, such as: BETA software suite version & GPU,
as well as detailed shared BETA software suite information in beta_lm_stat,
total clients connected and total/average waiting time in beta_lm.log and
many more.


<Known issues resolved in BETA LM>
Communication with License Manager
BETA suite would fail to cycle through all the available License Servers,
when trying to re-acquire license credits.

On top of that, as far as the Idle User Timeout is concerned, ANSA would fail
to turn in Idle Status, while remaining in Launcher window mode.

Network Interfaces
When switching network interfaces, the Shared Licensing feature would not
always be respected.

Moreover, BETA License Manager might fail to generate a valid host key,
in case of teamed network interfaces.
