We are pleased to announce the release of Dynare 4.6.1.
This maintenance release fixes various bugs.
The Windows, macOS and source packages are already available for download at the Dynare website.
All users are strongly encouraged to upgrade.
This release is compatible with MATLAB versions ranging from 7.9 (R2009b) to 9.7 (R2019b), and with GNU Octave versions 5.2.0 (under Windows) and 4.4.1 (under macOS).
Here is a list of the problems identified in version 4.6.0 and that have been fixed in version 4.6.1:
- Installation on macOS would fail if the GCC compiler was supposed to be installed and
www.google.comwas not reachable or blocked
- Dynare++ was missing the
- The parameter vector
M_.paramswould not be correctly updated after calls to
stoch_simuland discretionary_policy` if parameters had been modified in a steady state file
stoch_simulcommand with both the
TeXoptions would crash
stoch_simulcommand with the
noprintoption would crash
prior momentscommand would crash if the used parameter vector triggered an error code
- In case of problem, the
discretionary_policycommand would crash instead of aborting with a proper error code
- Computing of prior/posterior statistics would not work in parallel
- Closing of parallel estimation on GNU/Linux could crash
histvalcommand would not work in combination with the
- Ramsey optimal policy with multiple instruments would crash if a steady state file returned complex values, instead of providing an error message
model_diagnosticscommand would not correctly update the parameter vector if the latter was set in a steady state file
model_diagnosticscommand would ignore the
nochecksteady state flag
As a reminder, the list of new features introduced in versions 4.6.x can be found in the release notes for 4.6.0.
