* DORiE now depends on [`yaml-cpp`](https://github.com/jbeder/yaml-cpp/), a
    library for reading YAML files. The version required is >=5.2.0.

* Added an abstract base class
    [`SimulationBase`](dune/dorie/interface/base_simulation.hh)

    that models the concept of simulation steps so that they 
    can be later coupled with other simulations.

Lukas Riedel committed
13 14 15
* New classes representing parameterizations. Every parameterization must now
    derive from `RichardsParameterization`, and return function objects
    representing parameterization functions.

* CMake module `DorieTesting.cmake`. The module contains multiple functions
    which facilitate registering tests in the two new testing categories:
    System tests and Unit tests. Unit tests are compiled with appropriate flags
    for code coverage reports.
* Code coverage reports for unit tests. Detailed reports can be retrieved from
    the artifacts of the `test:unit-tests` test in the folder
    `build-cmake/test/coverage`. The total coverage is reported to GitLab.

25 26 27 28 29
* `Simulation` is renamed `RichardsSimulation` and moved to 
	[richards_simulation.hh](dune/dorie/interface/richards_simulation.hh).
* `RichardsSimulation` now has its own `RichardsSimulationTraits` derived from
    `BaseTraits`, which defines all its member types. `BaseTraits` now have
    reduced content and are intended to be shared between models/simulations.
30 31 32
* Grid adaptation now is done in two steps: (1) mark entities of the grid to 
    refine/coarse and (2) adapt the grid and project the degrees of freedom on 
    the new grid.

33 34 35 36 37 38 39
* Data structures for storing and accessing parameters. The new class
    `FlowParameters` maps parameter sets and scaling factors to every grid cell
    on the coarsest grid level, and only stores one set of parameters for
    each soil layer. Before querying the parameterization functions, users need
    to call `FlowParameters::bind` with a grid entity to cache the appropriate
    data. All classes and functions querying parameter data have been updated.

* `RichardsSimulation` now uses one vector of coefficients instead of two, which
    now is a `shared_ptr` instead a `unique_ptr`.
* Every `VTKAdapter` is now able to be used as `GridFunctionAdapter` of the
    solution vector.
* `GradientFluxAdapter` was reimplemented and renamed `WaterFluxAdapter`.
* Every grid function adapter has its own file and are gathered in the 
47
    subdirectory [dune/dorie/solver/adapters](dune/dorie/solver/adapters).

48 49 50 51
* `VTKAdapters` are now managed with `shared_ptr` instead of references.
* `OutputWriter` class is deprecated in favor of an minimal extension of the 
    usual `VTKSequenceWriter` for grid functions called
    `GridFunctionVTKSequenceWriter`.
52 53 54 55 56 57 58 59
* `RichardsSimulation` now models the `SimulationBase` class (See details in
    https://ts-gitlab.iup.uni-heidelberg.de/dorie/dorie/issues/94). For this, 
    several methods were renamed with basically no change in behaviour.
* `RichardsSimulation` and `TimeController` are able to receive a suggestion for
    the next timestep.
* Static const `bool`s for adaptivity and output writing in `BaseTraits` were 
    removed in favor of run-time policies (See details in
    https://ts-gitlab.iup.uni-heidelberg.de/dorie/dorie/issues/94).

* Swich to the stable release branch `releases/2.6` of `dune-testtools`.

* The `build` CI stage now explicitly builds system tests and unit tests. The
    job `build:main` has been removed. The `build:debug` jobs now build the
    unit test targets.

64
* Merge Python packages into single new package `dorie`.
65
* Executables and files of unit-tests and system-tests are now located in 
66
    [`dune/dorie/test/`](dune/dorie/test/) and [`test/`](test/) respectively.

* The `dorie` CLI has been moved into the DORiE Python package. It can now only
    be invoked after activating the DUNE virtual environment. The usage
    instructions in docs and `README.md` have been updated accordingly.

* Soil architecture and parameter input has been completely revised.

    DORiE now expects a YAML file containing parameterization data and separate
    domain mapping data which can be supplied through the input GMSH file, or as
    H5 dataset. See the documentation for more information. Several keys in the
    main routine config file have been changed.

    See [#86](https://ts-gitlab.iup.uni-heidelberg.de/dorie/dorie/issues/86).

* The Parameter Field Generator (PFG) module has been revised and does not
    write parameterization data anymore.
    
    It can be used to create mappings for heterogeneous media through the
    binary converter, or continuous scaling fields (feature pending).
    Several keys in the PFG config file have been changed.

    See [#86](https://ts-gitlab.iup.uni-heidelberg.de/dorie/dorie/issues/86).

* Improved and refurbished `Dorie::H5File`.

    The source file was renamed to `dune/dorie/solver/util_h5file.hh`. The
    `read_dataset` function is now capable of directly opening dataset paths
    that contain groups.

* The following changes were done in order to have a consistent API to support 
    different models:

    * Folder structure has changed to a model based structure: in the main 
        [c++ source directory](dune/dorie/) there now is a `common` folder, and 
        a folder for `models`. Each model has its own folder in `models` (i.e 
        `richards`).

    * The API has been updated to support several models: from now, categories 
        that  target a specific model has to be preceded by a keyword 
        identifying the  corresponding model (e.g. `richards.initial`, 
        `richards.output`, etc.),  while common categories stay with no prefix 
        at all (e.g. `grid`, `adaptivity`, etc.).

    * The parameter scraper now accepts the argument `--model <model>` which
        adds the prefix `<model>.` to every category in the scraper. This helps
        to be able to use the method `sub()` from the `ParameterTree` object. 

    * Parameter documentation has been split as it was done for folders 
        (see [source folder for documentation](doc/default_files)).

### Deprecated
* The configuration file key `[parameters.interpolation]` is deprecated due to
    the new scheme for storing parameterization data. DORiE now only supports 
    nearest-neighbor interpolation of parameters and scaling factors.

* The `adaptivity.useAdaptity` keyword is deprecated, please use the new keyword
     `adaptivity.policy` (see the [DORiE Configuration File Guide documentation]
     (https://dorie-doc.netlify.com/quickstart-parameters.html#main-routine)
     for details).

## 1.1.1 (2018-08-21)

### Added
* Documentation of Docker images and their usage in the CI/CD pipeline.

### Changed
* Rebuilds of the DUNE environment Docker image are now triggered by setting the
    CI variable `REBUILD_BASE_IMAGE` to a non-empty value. Previously, the
    builds in stage `setup` where triggered by any manual pipeline run.

    cause the corresponding test to fail if the designated output directory did
    not exist.

* VTK output is now written _before_ the grid is adapted. Previously, the output
    displayed the adapted grid and not the one the solution was computed on.
* Grid adaptation is skipped after computing the final solution.
