I am pleased to announce release 2013.3 of SfePy.

SfePy (simple finite elements in Python) is a software for solving
systems of coupled partial differential equations by the finite element
method. The code is based on NumPy and SciPy packages. It is distributed
under the new BSD license.

Highlights of this release
- implementation of Mesh topology data structures in C
- implementation of regions based on C Mesh (*)
- MultiProblem solver for conjugate solution of subproblems
- new advanced examples (vibro-acoustics, Stokes flow with slip conditions)

(*) Warning: region selection syntax has been changed in a principal way,
see [1]. Besides the simple renaming, all regions meant for boundary conditions
or boundary/surface integrals need to have their kind set explicitly to 'facet'
(or 'edge' in 2D, 'face' in 3D).


For full release notes see
(rather long and technical).

Best regards,
Robert Cimrman and Contributors (*)
