Comsol expects 1-based indices, as opposed to Python’s 0-based indexing.
Adds missing built-in group
mph.start()now returns existing client instance on subsequent calls.

Assigns more typical tag names when creating new model features.
In most cases, tags are now named like they are in the Comsol GUI.
Node.retag()allows post-hoc modification of a node’s tag.
Adds missing built-in groups, e.g. evaluations and tables.
Improves performance of node navigation in client–server mode.
The internal type-casting converts
Nodeinstances to their tags.
The internal type-casting handles lists of numbers.
Node.type()now returns nothing if node has no feature type.
Moved tutorial model to
Added demo script
create_capacitor.pythat generates the tutorial model.

We now offer you the best API Comsol has ever seen! 🎉
See “Creating models: Python style” for a feature demonstration.
Nodeclass allows easy navigation of the model tree.
Modelclass relies internally on
Nodefor most functionality.
Feature nodes can be created with
Node properties can be read and written via
Feature nodes can be removed with
Nodeclass has additional functionality for modifying the model.
All feature nodes can now be toggled, not just physics features.
Nodeclass instead to access that functionality.
Parameter descriptions should now be accessed via
This is a breaking change, but in line with other parts of the API.
mph.start()now picks a random free server port in client-server mode.
This avoids collisions when starting multiple processes on Linux and macOS.
Models may be saved as Java, Matlab, or VBA source files.
mph.tree()helps developers inspect the model tree in the console.
Known issue: Navigating the model tree is slow in client–server mode.
It is much faster in stand-alone mode, the default on Windows.
Made folder search case-insensitive on Linux/macOS, as requested in #31.
Published on March 24, 2021.
Added documentation chapter “Demonstrations”.
Added demo script that runs parallel Comsol sessions.
mph.start()to allow hand-selecting the server port.
This makes the demo script work reliably on Linux and macOS.
Improved error handling at server start-up.
Relaxed log levels during discovery of Comsol installations.
This suppresses possibly confusing log messages as described in #28.
Published on March 10, 2021.
mph.start()is now the preferred way to start a local Comsol session.
On Windows, it starts a lightweight, stand-alone client.
On Linux and macOS, it starts a thin client and local server.
This is due to limitations on these platforms described in issue #8.
Configuration options are exposed by
An in-memory cache for previously loaded model files may be activated.
Selection names are returned by
Feature names in physics interfaces are returned by
Feature nodes in physics interfaces can be toggled on or off.
Parameter descriptions can be modified.
Parameter values may be returned as evaluated numbers instead of string expressions.
Custom classes derived from
Modelcan now be more easily type-cast to.
Users are warned if log-in details for the Comsol server have not been set up.
Fixes issue #23 regarding discovery with older Python versions on Windows.
Fixes issue #24 regarding localized server output messages.
