we (Thomas Nagel, me) would like to release a new version 5.6.0 including the following major changes and bug fixes. If there are no objections, we will update trunk and announce the version in a few days.
Since we added a new process "TES", which is a thermal equilibrium variant of the already existing TNEQ, the new OGS release will have version number 5.6.0 and not 5.5.8.
