Announcement for Dynare 4.2.5 (on 2012-03-14)
=============================================
We are pleased to announce the release of Dynare 4.2.5.
This is a bugfix release.
The Windows package for the new release is already available for download at
the official Dynare website <http://www.dynare.org>. The Mac and Linux packages
should follow soon.
All users are strongly encouraged to upgrade.
The new release is compatible with MATLAB versions ranging from 7.0 (R14) to
7.14 (R2012a) and with GNU Octave versions ranging from 3.0 to 3.6.
Note that GNU Octave users under Windows will have to upgrade to GNU Octave
version 3.6.1 (MinGW). The Octave installer can be downloaded at:

Here is a non-exhaustive list of the problems identified in version 4.2.4 and
that have been fixed in version 4.2.5:
* The MATLAB optimization toolbox was sometimes not correctly detected even
when installed
* Using the inverse gamma distribution with extreme hyperparameter values
could lead to a crash
* Various issues in the accelerated deterministic solver with block
decomposition
* Various issues in the parallelization engine
* Compatibility issues with the Global Sensitivity Analysis toolbox
* The Dynare++ binary was broken in the Windows package because of a missing
dynamic library
