  101       <para>
  102     Rewrote the POSIX threading for the force calculation,
  103     resulting in a substantial speedup on multiprocessor
  104     hardware: A plot taking 10 seconds with
  105     <option>-j1</option> will now typically take 6.5
  106     seconds with <option>-j2</option> on a dual-processor
  107     machine.
  108       </para>
  109       <para>
  110     The default behaviour is now to use as many threads
  111     as there are CPUs on the system, if this number can
  112     be determined. Otherwise one thread is used.

  157       <para>
  158     Simplified the bilinear grid code and modified the
  159     radius of curvature calculation therein to use one-sided
  160     derivatives if the two-sided devivatives cannot be
  161     used due to lack of data.
  162       </para>
  163       <para>
  164     The result is that curvature data is usually available
  165     right up to edge of the boundary, improving robustness.
