# Intermediate or testing releases

## The LMDZ5 testing branch

We have created a "testing" branch in the LMDZ5 svn repository. It is destined to hold releases of the code that have succesfully undergone a number of compilation, execution and convergence tests and that deliver meaningful results. It is thus possible to distribute a more up-to-date version of the code than those held in the production version while avoiding all the problems of running a developer's release.

svn checkout http://svn.lmd.jussieu.fr/LMDZ/LMDZ5/branches/testing LMDZ5

The advantage of this construction is that to update to a new version of the testing release, one only needs do:

svn update


in the working directory one wants to update.

### Code versions on the testing branch:

revision 1999

Corresponds to revision 1997 of LMDZ5/trunk. On Ada, the benchmark case in serial/MPI/OMP/MPI_OMP yields identical start files.

Main changes:

• creation of dyn3d_common
• including RRTM
• moving all phylmd routines to free form

List of changes on the trunk between versions r1921 and r1997.

revision 1921

Corresponds to revision 1920 of LMDZ5/trunk. On Ada, the benchmark case in serial/MPI/OMP/MPI_OMP yields identical start files.

List of changes on the trunk between versions r1909 and r1920.

revision 1910

Corresponds to revision 1909 of LMDZ5/trunk. On Ada, the benchmark case in serial/MPI/OMP/MPI_OMP yields identical start files. The climatology may be found here.

List of changes on the trunk between versions r1861 and r1909

revision 1864

Corresponds to revision 1860 of LMDZ5/trunk (before massive work on moving on to free format)

List of changes on the trunk between versions r1796 and r1860

revision 1796

Corresponds to revision 1794 of LMDZ5/trunk

List of changes on the trunk between versions r1745 and r1794

revision 1750

Corresponds to revision 1745 of LMDZ5/trunk

List of changes on the trunk between versions r1706 and r1745

revision 1707

Corresponds to revision 1706 of LMDZ5/trunk

• some work on the environment
• better integration of 1D model
• better integration of the "aquaplanet" cases
• including dyn3dmem, low memory parallelized dynamics

revision 1669

Corresponds to revision 1668 of LMDZ5/trunk

• some work on convection
• addition of the low memory parallelized dynamics
• addition of the stochanstics initiation of convection
• some work on COSP
• some work on the aerosols

revision 1665

Corresponds to revision 1628 of LMDZ5/trunk

We once again have 1+1=2 with the old physics (lost since the new calendar was introduced). 10 year control simulations have been done by Abderrahmane and many other tests are ongoing. See results.

revision 1664

Corresponds to revision 1575 of LMDZ5/trunk

Some tests on parallelism and results reproducibility are ongoing with this revision, on Vargas, Titane and Mercure. See test results  here.

revision 1663

Corresponds to revision 1554 of LMDZ5/trunk

This version is used for the coupled NPv3.0 simulations in IPSLCM5B configuration. See the monitoring of the v5.PicCtrlNP1 here
