For those of you unable to attend the hackathon you might be interested
to know that we have prepared a new distribution of libSBML 3.0.0 which
we are calling the "libSBML 3.0.0 Prerelease" because it is
so very nearly done, but with the Hackathon in a few days it
seems more sensible to let Hackathon people try it first
before calling it "libSBML 3.0.0 final".
This release supports the final release candidate of the
SBML Level 2 Version 3 R1 specification. In addition, among
the updates since the libSBML beta_2 release are the
following new features:
- Java, Perl and Python bindings now available (thanks Akiya!)
- Matlab binding is now available.
- Extensive code documentation and API manuals for C++ and
Java, with more coming soon.
(These will be available as direct links from the Hackathon Wiki page
http://sbml.org/wiki/Hackathon_2007 and as a separate download
- Many problems caught and fixed.
We've tested this on a variety of platforms, and with the
following XML parser libraries. You will need one of these
with at least the version listed:
* Expat 1.95.8
* Xerces 2.3 - 2.7 (note: 2.6 does NOT work)
* libxml2 2.6.27
The main uncertainty at this point is the SBML L2v3
specification itself. We want to issue libSBML 3.0.0 so
that it supports the specification, so are holding off the
final release pending final discussions at the Hackathon.
If you try it and want to report issues, the best way may be
to use the SourceForge bug tracking page for libSBML at
Please use the "libSBML 3.0.0 Prerelease" group for reports
dealing with this release.
