Release of stable and validated Code_Saturne version 3.0

The new version of Code_Saturne, Code_Saturne 3.0 is available for download.

Version 3.0 is a "long-term support" version, and the 3.0 branch has undergone a full validation process. We recommend users who prefer to use the most current version to switch from version 2.3 to version 3.0. The documentation has been updated.

As with any version, in case you detect bugs, we appreciate your feedback on the forum and bug-tracker, which will help us to provide you with patch releases for this stable series, as well as improvements for future developement versions.

Reminder: current Code_Saturne developpment cycles are based on a release approximately every 6 months, including a fully validated, "long-term support" version every 2 years.
Version 3.1 is scheduled for April 2013, shifting the release cycle by a few months to synchronize with the SALOME platform, so 4.0 should be released November 2014.

For more details, the reader may refer either to the release notes of the version or to the svn ChangeLog and/or to the NEWS file.
