simulation and animation. See for details.

Release notes

   number of arrivals since last reset / duration since last reset
   number of departures since last reset / duration since last reset

If this method is used with any other file type, like .mp4, the file does
not need to exist (i.e. no action is taken then).

>From this version, salabim uses the CalVer (see standard
for the version number.
This means that versions are numbered YY.major.minor, where
  YY is the year of the release minus 2000
  major is the major version number (0 based)
  minor is the minor version number (0 based)

>From this version, legacy Python (<= 2.7) is no longer officially supported.
