- Improved simulation debugging: the

debug = TRUEonly prints the current event (the old behaviour can be restored using
debug = "simList")
Improved useability for module developers, including:
- New RStudio addin to simplify creation of new modules;
- Modules with lots of code can be split into several files: put helper functions etc. into
.Rfiles located in the module’s
- New tools for performing heuristic optimization using pattern orientated modelling (see
- Improved support of parallel computatations
