Release 2.1.0 of SimPy simulation package

Project description

SimPy 2.1.0 is a major re-release of SimPy 2.0. It repairs a number of errors in SimPy 2.0.1 libraries, models and documentation. There has been significant code refactoring in,,,, and This resulted in a significant reduction of code to be maintained.

Documentation/tutorials on using the advanced OO API have been added.

SimPy is a process-based discrete-event simulation language based on standard Python and released under the GNU LGPL.

It provides the modeller with components of a simulation model. These include processes, for active components like customers, messages, and vehicles, and resources, for passive components that form limited capacity congestion points like servers, checkout counters, and tunnels. It also provides monitor variables to aid in gathering statistics. SimPy comes with extensive plotting capabilities.

The distribution contains in-depth documentation, tutorials, and a large number of simulation models.

Simulation model developers are encouraged to share their SimPy modeling techniques with the SimPy community. Please post a message to the simpy-Users mailing list,

Software developers are also encouraged to interface SimPy with other Python-accessible packages, such as GUI, data base or mapping and to share these new capabilities with the community under the GNU LGPL.
