OpenStudio 1.5.0 is now available for download from the OpenStudio website.
Notable new features include:
- Upgrade from Ruby 1.8 to Ruby 2.0.
- Reporting measures can now request output variables from EnergyPlus to ensure that they have the data they need to create plots or make reports. Additionally, units and descriptions can now be added to measure arguments.
- C++ SDK documentation has been significantly improved, which includes a search feature and links between all Doxygen directories. Updated C++ and Ruby coding standards can be found on the GitHub wiki.
- Previously available for Refrigeration Walk Ins and Refrigeration Cases, GridView (a grid-style interface providing detailed component views) has now been applied to the Space Types tab, as well as the Thermal Zones tab. These GridView-enabled tabs now allow practitioners to view and modify numerous Space Types (or Thermal Zones) and their objects, simultaneously.
Please see the release notes for a complete list of new features and improvements. Videos demonstrating new features will be uploaded soon to our website and YouTube channel.
