I am pleased to announce a new beta release of Gale, an Arbitrary
Lagrangian-Eulerian code for the long term tectonics community.  You
can download the code from


You can read installation instructions in the bundled README and
INSTALL files.

Release Notes:

  * There are now examples of extension, shortening, and subduction
    that work in 2D and 3D.

  * Inflow and outflow boundaries are now supported.

  * A straightforward Mohr-Coulomb yielding model is now available.

  * Parallel is a bit flaky and may or may not work for you.

  * Narrow faults may have numerical problems

  * Binaries are available for Windows, Mac, and Linux.

This release is almost feature complete.  At this point, the only
significant steps from here to 1.0 are

  * Stress Boundaries
  * Miscellaneous bug fixes
  * Improved documentation
  * More thorough testing
