kim-api-v1.9.1 released — minor improvements and bug fixes


The KIM development team is pleased to announce the release of version 1.9.1 of the KIM application programming interface (API). This release includes minor improvements to the installation process and bug fixes.

Version 1.9.1 includes the following changes:

  • Adjustment to build config flags to make cross-language compiling a bit more flexible

  • Fixed subtle Fortran implementation bug associated with non-short-circuit conditional Fortran behavior

  • Removed 'make install-set-default-to-v1' target and updated INSTALL instructions. This means that routines like kim-api-build-config now explicitly include the major version number. For example, kim-api-v1-build-config. This simplifies the installation process, and With the upcoming release of version 2.0.0, makes it easy to have simultaneous installations of different major versions of the API.

  • Made some shell code more portable

  • Fixed some other installation details

  • Fixed missing semicolon in makefile
