  • #3035 Cell separation on division in center based models. We have corrected a bug where cells were incorrectly placed on division in centre-based models using RandomDirectionCentreBasedDivisionRule This will change the exact cell location results in ALL centre-based simulations but it will not change the tissue level behaviour.

Jan 2020

  • Git submodule - concerns all users/developers: a new git submodule has been introduced to contain some CellML-related stuff which we share with other projects. This means that from now on, when cloning chaste, you have to add the --recursive flag. e.g. git clone --recursive -b develop https://chaste.cs.ox.ac.uk/git/chaste.git Chaste. If you already have a clone locally, you'll need to run git submodule update --init after pulling the latest develop branch. Occasionally you will need to do a submodule update too, but a test has been introduced which should fail and tell you when this is the case. So if you ever see heart tests failing for no apparent reason, run heart/test/ionicmodels/TestMetadataSubmodule.hpp to see if it just needs an update. Details in #3024.

Changes before this point were released in version 2019.1 or earlier and can be found in OlderNews
