+Some of the aforementioned features are backward-incompatible, including:
+ 1) The global mesh is changed.
+ The coordinates of all nodes are shifted laterally slightly.
+ The change is not discernible by eyes, but does affect the solution compared
+ to previous versions.
+ 2) The convergence criterion of the Stokes solver is changed.
+ A single parameter ``accuracy'' is used to control the accuracy of the
+ continuity and momentum equations.
+ The default value of ``accuracy'' was 
+\begin_inset Formula $10^{-6}$

+\begin_inset Formula $10^{-4}$
+ 3) The input parameter ``mantle_temp'' is moved from [CitcomS.solver.param]
