Version 8.2 of deal.II, the object-oriented finite element library awarded the
J. H. Wilkinson Prize for Numerical Software, has been released. It is

This version has a significant number of noteworthy new features:
- Comprehensive support for geometries described by arbitrary manifolds
   and meshes that respect this description not only on the boundary but
   also internally
- Support for geometries imported from CAD using the OpenCASCADE library
- Three new tutorial programs on complex geometries, CAD geometries, and
   time stepping methods
- Support for users wanting to use C++11 features
- Improvements to multithreading support
- Vectorization of many vector operations using OpenMP SIMD directives
- At least 140 features and bugfixes
