Change Logs

* Mon Apr 30 2018
- Update to version 7.1.3:
  * Dipole Shower
  - Changed default phase space limits
  - g -> gg splitting function asymmetrized
  - Initial retune supplied, given the visible changes
    to LEP observables
  * Added new Baryonic colour reconnection model (arXiv
  * Added Schuler-Sjostrand Photon PDFs
  * Handling of massless taus from external sources
  * various minor fixes
  * use std::array<> where possible
Version: 7.1.2-bp150.1.3
* Thu Apr 19 2018
- Build Herwig only on x86_64 since other archs are not supported
* Sun Nov 05 2017
- Update to version 7.1.2:
  * Reduction of the default pt cut for QED radiation off leptons.
  * Inputfile changes due to new read mode in ThePEG.  ThePEG
    remains in current repo dir when reading input-file/snippet.
  * Fix for shower scale variations in qtilde shower.
  * All standard input files now use the tuned intrinsic pt.
  * Remove obsolete input files for various tunes.
  * Fix for Madgraph interface for NLO corrections with recent
  * Run file size reduction for processes using madgraph/openloops.
  * Fix in jacobian for massive dipole kinematics.
  * General improvements for UFO model handling.
- Fix env based hashbangs (/usr/bin/env python -> /usr/bin/python,
* Wed Oct 11 2017
- Use more fine-grained BuildRequires on boost* libraries for
  openSUSE > 1320.
* Sat Sep 02 2017
- Build with HepMC2-devel, since Rivet does not compile with
  HepMC-devel >= 3 yet.
* Wed Aug 02 2017
- Update to version 7.1.1:
  * Snippets are now all installed
  * Fixed broken ufo2herwig output and
  * UFO improvements
  - More robust SLHA file handling
  - option of creating diagonal mixing matrices, needed for
    ATLAS simplfied models
  - Improved warnings about resetting standard model particles
  - Fixed certain cases where the wrong lorentz structure was
    picked in VVS vertices
  * Improved error message for unhandled beam particles
  * Fix for Dipole Shower chain selection
  * Fixed crash in double diffractive delta resonances
- Changes from version 7.1.0:
  * For a more detailed overview and further references please see
    the release note arXiv:1705.06919
  * NLO multijet merging with the dipole shower
  * A new soft model
  * An interface to EvtGen
  * Improved calculation of mass effects in the dipole shower
  * Top decays in the dipole shower, and NLO corrections to the
  * An implementation of the KrkNLO method for simple processes
  * Major restructuring and cleanup of default input files
  * C++11 is now mandatory and heavily used in the code
  * Many smaller bugfixes and improvements
- Update filelist for new and dropped binaries.
- Disable for %{ix86}: no longer supported.
- Rebase Herwig-disable-repo-install.patch for update.
* Mon Feb 13 2017
- Rename from libHerWig1 to Herwig-libs as the package does not
  satisfy the SLPP guideline: there are a number of
* Wed Nov 16 2016
- Trim history lesson from description
* Tue Nov 15 2016
- Rename shared library, adding the so number from; the so numbers of the other shared libraries
  are expected to be incremented by upstream in step with this.
- Move config file to -devel pkg in keeping with shlib packaging
- Added obsoletes/provides for Herwig++ which will now be dropped
  from Factory.
* Fri Nov 11 2016
- Initial package.
- Add Herwig-disable-repo-install.patch: Disable post-install
  hooks intended to set up the Herwig repo, this doesn't work
  inside the build script because of missing LHAPDF data that
  needs to be installed by the user; the install-hook doesn't
  serve any purpose while building the rpm and users can easily
  set this up on their own.
