As it was announced here, the new Input/Output interface has been merged into the master branch, and it is ready to work.
In an user point of view several advantages could be considered:
- More intuitive XML input.
- XML backup saved in all the printed frame (so the simulation can be continued).
- Per fluid output files.
But the main benefits are for the developers due to now several base classes may be used and new readers/writers could be easily registered.
Anyway some work must be done, like moving the reports stuff which still be inside the server.
