We are very excited to announce the release of PreonLab 4.0. This major release expands, improves, and accelerates the core capabilities of PreonLab, highlighted by the following features:
- Snow solver: PreonLab continues to push the boundaries of particle-based simulations with the introduction of a semi-implicit snow solver.
- More accurate fluid solver: The updated Preon solver is able to capture even more phenomena and requires less parameter calibration.
- Implicit thermodynamics solver: The thermodynamics solver now supports much larger timesteps via implicit integration, greatly improving performance.
- Local fluid refinement (experimental): It is now possible to use two particle sizes in the same simulation, reducing computation time and the amount of generated particle data.
