CHIMERE bugs and updates

  • This page lists the bugs found in the current last CHIMERE version and the updates to add in order to have a more secure code.
  • Each time a bug is found, the corresponding chimere version has a new name: the letter at the end of the name version is increased by a letter (from "A" to "B" for example).
