LIGGGHTS 2.0.5: (released 3 August 2012)

+ Fixed an issue with fix insert/pack where option "n_particles_in_region" with "all_in yes" did not work correctly due to a round-off issue when the insertion volume was the whole box.
+ Performed a small re-work in container classes to make mesh communication more efficient.
+ Fixed an internal bug in mesh communication.
+ Fixed a bug in particle-wall heat transfer. Thanks to Kirk A. Fraser (Roche Consulting Group) for letting us know.
+ Fixed a bug in fix move/mesh that resulted in wrong mesh position for consecutive runs. Thanks to Chris Stoltz (P&G) for providing a script that showed the issue.
+ Improved random generation for parallel particle insertion. Now random seeds are different for each process, making the insertion look "more random".
+ Couple of low-level bug-fixes.

However, there are some restrictions in 2.0.5 (see below) which will be relaxed over time:
+ region tetmesh is not yet available
+ 'all_in yes' is not yet available for fix insert/stream
+ fix breakparticle/force is not yet available
