The new version of code_aster open-source, code_aster stable (13.4), is available for download.

The version 13.4 is the new branch for long-time support (2 years). The next versions 13.x will only contain bugfixes. The version 14.0 is the same as the version 13.4 and it is the start point of the version 14 that will receive improvements and bugfixes.

The distribution format remains identical: a unique archive contains code_aster and all other additional tools in the form of source code.

Apart from code_aster you will find the latest available updates: astk 1.13.10 (Aster’s GUI for calculation management), Homard 11.7 (a mesh refining tool), the med 3.2.1 library (exchange of meshes and fields with third-party codes), metis 5.1.0 (reordering tool), mumps 5.1.1 (linear solver), etc.

In addition, as for the previous version, these versions incorporate an interface to MFront, a constitutive law generator developed by CEA and EDF. The packaged version is MFront 3.0.0.

The prerequisites needed for compilation are detailed on this page.

Please read the README file included in the package before the installation, then
