Dear all,

I finally spared some time to install foam-extend 3.2 and test IHFOAM in it. Happily enough, everything compiles out of the box without any changes from previous versions.

I also encountered the same problems as in versions 3.0 and 3.1: running in parallel fails due to commsType being set to blocking. (See ). The solution that I have been using until now is the one outlined here:

Basically, changing in the commsType in $WM_PROJECT_DIR/etc/controlDict by nonBlocking, used to make the trick. However, in version 3.2, controlDict has been replaced by controlDict-EXAMPLE. Changing the value there, does not work, copying the file over and naming it controlDict does not work either.

Any solutions to set commsType in 3.2?
