Hey, thanks for this release!

Did you change your GitHub strategy from having separate repositories for each version to a single "OpenFOAM-dev" repository for new releases (with version-3.0.0 tag):

https://github.com/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-dev

This change would be very welcome because it's helpful for keeping track with changes, investigating when a dictionary key has been introduced etc.

So - as there's currently no "version-3.0.1" tag - could you please also tag future versions?

Hi,

There is version-3.0.1 tag in OpenFOAM-3.0.x repository (https://github.com/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM.../version-3.0.1). Guess, the next release in OpenFOAM-dev would be 4.0.0.

Took me a while to get my head around this... until I remembered that the OpenFOAM-dev repository isn't part of the standard download list. The reason for this development repository is detailed here: http://www.openfoam.org/dev.php
For another description on this topic, please read this post of mine from March of 2015: http://www.cfd-online.com/Forums/ope...tml#post537720 - post #2

I was going to report this on the bug tracker, but when I started thinking about which exact commit it corresponds to, when it hit me... and Alexey's post does hint at the reason:

The idea is that:
  1. 3.0.1 is a stable patch-release from the 3.0.x repository.
    • This repository for OpenFOAM-3.0.x branched out from OpenFOAM-dev at the tag "version-3.0.0".
  2. OpenFOAM-dev continues with new developments, therefore there is no specific commit that fully correlates to the 3.0.x repository.
  3. This is because 3.0.x is the bug fix version for OpenFOAM 3.0, as explained in the respective installation instructions page: http://www.openfoam.org/download/git.php
    Quote:
    This page describes how to download and compile the very latest source code of OpenFOAM that includes fixes for all submitted bugs.

I've also reported just now that the README.org file at the OpenFOAM-dev repository should be a bit more detailed about what it's for: http://www.openfoam.org/mantisbt/view.php?id=1962

Best regards,
Bruno
