This update contains several bug fixes for and stability improvements to COMSOL 4.0a.Update Details.
COMSOL programs are distributed in accordance with U.S. Export Administration regulations. They may be subject to U.S. Export Control laws or other (U.S. and non-U.S.) governmental export and import laws. It is the licensee's responsibility to comply with the latest U.S. or other governmental export or import regulations. Export or import in violation of applicable export control laws is prohibited. If you wish to submit materials to COMSOL in connection with any support request that must be restricted to U.S. persons under applicable export control laws, then you must submit such materials by email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The periodic updates are cumulative, meaning the latest update contains all previous updates for version 4.0a. The contents of each update are listed below.
