LifeV 2.2.0 is out!

The newest release of the LifeV library is out, so come get it while it's hot!

Or the Bzip2 for the bandwidth conservative ones:

 This new release brings some changes and additions:

* A monolithic solver for fully coupled FSI problems, a 1D model and solver, an experimental 0D solver, to mention just a few. In addition, it comes with a plethora of bugfixes and enhancements to enrich your LifeV experience!
* This will be the last release of the 2.X.X series. It will be followed by the 3.X.X series which will be the first to offer a new modular structure of the library, allowing you to enable and disable individual components at will.
* You can configure the library either with the traditional configure && make && make install approach, or with CMake. The CMake scripts, while already fully functional, will receive a facelift before the next release and we will work to improve their features and robustness as they will become the prefered method to configure LifeV, while the autotools scripts will become deprecated. For now, you should check README_CMake in the root folder of the distribution for instructions
on how to use the CMake scripts.

As usual, please come to with any suggestions, feedback or should you encounter any problems. The developers of LifeV are there to help! We also encourage registered users of LifeV to use the mailing list as a place to share experiences and discuss.

We hope you will find this release useful and get some good science out of it!
