COPASI 4.3 (Build 25)

Version 4.3 (Build 25)

Release Date: March 12, 2008

New Features

  • Model
    • Metabolites are now called Species, in line with the terminology used in SBML.
    • The scope of local reaction parameters is now limited to the reaction which defines them. This is in line with the SBML specifications.
  • Graphical User Interface (CopasiUI)
    • Improved display and reporting of mass conservation analysis results.
  • Command Line (CopasiSE)
    • Added a mass conservation analysis task has been added to the command line version.
    • Added option --nologo, which suppresses COPASI version and license statement.
    • Added option --validate, which only validates the input files (CopasiML, Gepasi, or SBML).
  • SBML
    • Import SBML Level 1 Version 1, 2 and Level 2 Version 1 - 3.
    • Export SBML Level 1 Version 2 and Level 2 Version 1 - 3.
    • Added support for initial assignments.

Bug Fixes

  • Results
    • A bug that produced incorrect stochastic simulation results in models with changing volumes has been fixed.
    • Fixed problem calculating Jacobian and MCA for SBML models whose reaction kinetics were defined without explicit dependence on species (ie through expressions that involved these species).
    • Fixed numerical problem in stochastic simulations, which could interrupt the integration.
    • Improved numerical differentiation, which would lead to incorrect results for changing compartment volumes close to zero.
  • Graphical User Interface (CopasiUI)
    • Fixed occasional access violation when closing COPASI under Windows.
    • Fixed problem where changes to local parameter in the reaction display were occasionally ignored.
    • Models with circular dependencies can now be saved.
    • The histograms have now the correct bin size for the bin at zero.
    • The time series displayed in the time course and optimization result does no show the values for the individual task instead of the result of the last executed task.
    • Changes to the mapping of the kinetic function parameters in the reaction display are now preserved when the reaction is committed.
    • Changes to the initial particle number of species are now preserved.
    • The MathML saved in the ODE display is now a valid XML document.
    • Fixed the scaling of plots, which failed when the first value to be displayed was missing or invalid.
    • Fixed problem editing initial values when disabling an initial assignment.
    • Fixed occasional crash when enabling an initial assignment.
    • Added a column for initial assignments to the tables of compartments, species, and model quantities.
    • Saving extremely large time series in memory will no longer lead to a crash. Instead an error message will be displayed.
    • The time series shows now the correct species concentration for models with changing compartment volumes.
    • Fixed occasional crash occurring when constraints are used in optimization or parameter estimation.
    • The object selection for constraints show now additionally transient values.
    • Results are now cleared when a new model is created or loaded avoiding confusion and occasional crashes.
    • The quantity conversion factor can now be used in initial assignments and has been added to the object selection.
    • Disabled editing the initial concentration for metabolites where this would lead to circular dependencies due assignment rules for the containing compartment.
  • Command Line (CopasiSE)
    • Error messages are now printed to std::error when CopasiSE fails.
    • The --verbose options prints now all internal messages whether they are errors or not to std::out.
  • SBML
    • Fixed problem importing compartments without the volume attribute set from SBML level 1.
    • Export of models using COPASI's uniform and normal distribution functions will create now proper error messages
    • Species with the hasOnlySubstanceUnits flag set to true are now handled correctly in kinetic laws.
    • Fixed problem where every second SBML export failed.
    • Improved export of models with changing compartment volumes.
    • Fixed import and export of piecewise defined mathematical expressions.
  • ODE Export
    • The C code export of models using COPASI's uniform and normal distribution functions expects the user to provide these functions instead of failing the export.
