LIGGGHTS 1.2.9 (released 26 April 2011)

+ Added a new fix transportequation/scalar that solves general particle-based transport equations, generalizing the code from the heat transfer model
+ Some improvements to heat transfer model resulting in simulation speed-up for dilute cases
+ Initial commit of the LIGGGHTS part for a convective heat transfer model in the frame of the CFD-DEM coupling, CFD part to come over the next weeks
+ Improved CFD-DEM coupling so that now particles can be inserted/deleted during a coupled run ("consecutive tags" error).
+ Added a doc and fixed some bugs with the new new pair styles pair/gran/hooke/history/stiffness, pair/gran/hertz/history/stiffness and according wall styles.
Thanks to Christine Bertsch (Züblin) for reporting this

it's meant for developers, so have a look at the code, it should be pretty clear - fix_scalar_transportequation.h/cpp.
It's not a big deal, but one more step towards encapsulating functionalities in LIGGGHTS.
