The presently available stable version of pyMelt represents a largescale reorganisation of the previous version of the module. The syntax has remained similar, but lithologies are now stored in separate sub-modules.
Hydrous melting is now supported via the hydrousLithology class
The chemistry module has been added for trace element calculations
By default, adiabatic decompression calculations will now start at the solidus with a fixed pressure decrement.
This is essentially a move to v2.0, which is reserved for the version of pyMelt that coincides with manuscript publication.
The MeltingColumn class has been condensed and all geological-setting specific functionality removed. It has also been renamed from MeltingColumn_1D to MeltingColumn
There is a new geosettings module containing the geological-setting specific functionality removed from the MeltingColumn class.
The default number of steps has been increased back to 1001 for the melting calculation.
The calculation of crustal thickness in geosettings.SpreadingCentre now has a much smaller pressure decrement, so that small differences in crustal thickness can be determined more precisely.
