Dear users,

MBDyn 1.5.3 is out.  The tarball is available at

<http://www.aero.polimi.it/masarati/Download/mbdyn/mbdyn-1.5.3.tar.gz>

The main change is related to handling of nodes and elements exactly in
the order they are input.  This change *should* be harmless, but please
check carefully and report any issue you may encounter.  By design, there
is no means to reproduce the old behavior; the new behavior should be more
intuitive, since it is what one would expect.

The complete changelog is:

MBDyn 1.5.3
    Enhancements:
	- added forces NetCDF support (Louis Gagnon)
	- added support for modal damping matrix in modal joint db
	- femgen(1) more user friendly (and documented)
    Backward compatibility issues:
	- nodes and elements now handled in strict input order
    Known issues:
	- Schur solver is broken
	- TotalPinJoint inverse dynamics support is broken
	- RTAI and multithread support incompatible
	- module-octave and multithread support incompatible
    Bug fixes:
	- fix multiple statements bug in string drive caller
	- fix (harmless) memory issue in structural mapping force
	- fix integer division bug in aeromodal element

Enjoy!  Sincerely, p.
