Bug Fixes:
  • [Tracker issue #3137967] Namespaces in the sbml element were incorrectly parsed, some known namespaces like html were not kept for examples. This is fixed, thanks to Paulo Maia for reporting this.
Known issues:
  • problem of output indentation for notes, when there is several top level elements.
  • the method SBMLDocument.checkConsistency() is not working. There is a problem in the parsing of the XML return by the validator.
  • dependency on the validator which might not be robust enough (you cannot submit a file bigger 15MB for example). It would be better to be able to install your own localy or at least have several mirrors. We will have to see how it performs.
  • in a mathML block, if one 'ci'element is suppose to represent a functionDefinition but the id is not a valid id, the type of the ASTNode is not set properly, so there are some errors when trying to use the corresponding ASTNode tree. (cf model generated by COBRA)
