I have just released the version v0.3 of the VI-Suite. Important changes compared to the previous 0.2 release are:

- Experimental support for Radiance’s new Photon Mapping capabilities.
- Specification of heating, cooling, occupancy, equipment and infiltration for EnVi zone is now done within the EnVi network node tree.
