hjasak will become famous soon enough
We are proud to announce that the long-awaited next release of the
community fork of OpenFOAM(R) has finally happened! Previously known as
"OpenFOAM-extend", we intend continue the tradition and spirit of the
original FOAM code, which was released as the general purpose CFD/CCM
package by Nabla Ltd. in 2000. In this spirit, we shall revert to
original numbering scheme (foam-2.3.2, 13 December 2004) and name the
new release: "foam-extend-3.0", nicknamed "Jeju". It is distributed
under GPLv2. The release can be compiled and runs on any linux system
and Apple Mac OS X.

The release contains work by over 50 contributors. For a full list of
features and improvements, please have a look at the release notes.
This is a community effort and we welcome all your contributions: Bug
reports, bugfixes, code, documentation, and anything else you would like
to contribute.

For a detailed list of contributions, new features, capabilities,
top-level solvers, utilities and tutorials, please see the release notes.

The source code of the new release is available through git. To download
the source code for a user-space installation, please run:

mkdir ~/foam/
cd ~/foam/
git clone git://

Please refer to ~/foam/foam-extend-3.0/doc/installtationInstructions/
for the necessary steps to compile the source code on your system. If
your system is missing or if you find any errata, please contribute to
the project and submit new or updated documentation!

Binary packages for Linux Ubuntu 12.04 and 13.10, and Fedora 19 are
available for download on the project website:

The Mac OS X contribution is available as a mountable sparse disk image .

Please enjoy and join the community!

miladrakhsha is on a distinguished road
Professor jasak,
Thank you and the extend project team for supporting the OpenFOAM community. I was wondering if you can clarify what you mean by "Library-level support for Immersed Boundary Method and Overset Mesh".
I tried to port the source code that was originally made in ext-1.6 to the new release.
I compiled everything but the simpleIbFoam source code was not compiled. I came to the conclusion that this might have been the purpose of this sentence.
I would deeply appreciate if you can explain this a little bit.

Thank you in advance
