Hello everyone,

I am pleased to announce the release of ADOL-C version 2.5.0. The source
code is available from the SVN repository on COIN-OR in the
releases/2.5.0 subdirectory. The tarballs should be available on the
COIN-OR download server by tomorrow. (For those using git, the
appropriate commit in master has been tagged too).

The major features in this release are:
* An overhaul of the internal memory management to make it
  more efficient
* Support for the AdjoinableMPI API (thanks to Jean Utke)
* Overhaul of the external functions interface (thanks to Jean Utke)
* Support for piecewise linearizations of piecewise smooth functions
* Support for pkg-config (thanks to Oliver Sander)
* Computations on the NVIDIA-GPU in forward mode using CUDA
* Overhaul of the traceless forward mode.
* Support for sparsity in traceless forward mode.
* Fixes in higher order tensor propagation
* Fix a function name conflict
     address() -> tensor_address()
* Various other small misceleneous fixes
