XLiFE++ is a Finite Element library written in C++ based on a variational approach and standard finite element methods, boundary element methods, spectral approximations. It allows to mix these different methods in a easy way to deal with complex models. A new version (v1.5) has been released in November 2016. This year, many bugs have been fixed and many improvements have been done. The main new features are: introduction of hierarchical matrix, new development for BEM computation (2D Helmholtz is now available), re-engineering of the automatic installation and compilation and connection to a Jenkins test platform. Two training days gathering thirty people have been organized in June 2016.
