This release defines how to handle files that only contain mesh or particle records gracefully. New attributes have been defined to document software dependencies and utilized hardware. The ED-PIC extension updated values for particle pushers. It further improves wordings for consistency throughout the standard.
Changes to "1.0.1"
meshesPath & particlesPath: optional (only when needed) #171
optional attributes to document software dependencies & hardware #170
backwards compatible changes:
fix wording: meshName means mesh record #168
fix wording: root path is a "group" as well #169
particlePush: additional values defined #172
No data conversion needed.
