We are thrilled to announce the winter release of ENVI-met on Friday, ready to run on your desktops and servers. This new release is a game-changer for our company, and we think you’re going to be very pleased with the innovations that will come with it.
With Version 4.3 (Winter 1718) a new chapter of ENVI-met modelling will be opened with three new features that go hand-in-hand and will allow a fast an flexible computing of large areas.
64 Bit Support: ENVI-met switches the main model and main application to 64 Bit. This allows to make full usage of the computer memory and is a necessary condition to compute large areas
Free-Sized Model Domains: Starting with V4.3 there are no longer predefined maximum model sizes such as 150×150 or 250×250. The memory is allocated dynamically to fit the selected model area size and is only limited by the computer resources available.
Parallel Computing: To allow larger model areas and also to speed up the calculation process in general, many routines of ENVI-met are now parallelized to support multiple CPU cores. As parallel computing on standard computers is a relatively new field, we will continue to improve and extend the parallel routines in upcoming versions of ENVI-met.
