Spring fever (learning how to test properly)

There was a little difference that made the examples run in the last release if you installed oemof locally but not if you installed it from pypi. Thus, they did not work with version 0.1.2.

Now we learned how to test them properly, applied a hotfix and released two versions again, due to superstitions (1.3 is almost a 13). The actual version is now v.0.1.4. It is not true but a nice story and due to the open philosophy errors like these fortunately show up really quick :smirk:

Have a look at the 0.1.2 release to see the real changes and stay tuned!

This week, the first version of the oemof-application renpassG!S has been released!

renpassG!S is an easy-to-use application designed to model the cost-minimal dispatch of energy supply systems. Technically speaking, it is a so-called numerical partial equilibrium model of a liberalised electricity market often referred to as fundamental model.
