Revision 8845 has been designated a MESA release version.
The full release notes are available in this mailing list post.
- In order to improve the clarity and uniformity of MESA inlist
options, names using “cnt” were changed to use “interval” (e.g.,
terminal_cntwas renamed to
terminal_interval). For the same reasons, the option
photostepwas renamed to
photo_interval. A simple find-and-replace will bring your inlists up-to-date. If one needs to make the changes in a more automated fashion, a sample migration script is included in the release annoucement to mesa-users.
- In the binary module, adjustments were made to the Eddington mass accretion rate to take into account black hole spins.
