New mexfiles for Matlab 2007a on PC-platform
Matlab has changed the way mex-files work in Matlab2007a. The precompiled mex-files included in WAFO do only work for Matlab2006 and below. Thus the files has to be compiled again. The compiled mexfiles for matlab 2007a and PC-platform can be downloaded

Improvements in the Fortran routines used in trgauss/ have been made. For Unix users, the files have been compiled on the platforms sol2 and alpha. Among the new features is the possibility to choose negative values of the parameter NIT, which means that number theoretical methods are used for integration.
Find the directories exec/sol2 and exec/alpha as compressed files at the page for Bugs.
November 11
Updated versions of the modules wstats/ and wavemodels. Find compressed files to download at the page for Bugs.
Online documentation of the modules available.
