Morpheus 2.3.0

Morpheus 2.3.0 release provides a parallel CPM implementation boosting simulation performance on multi-core machines considerably. Heterogeneous diffusion and flux-boundaries allow to cover a wider range of modelling applications.

For a simulation performance overview of the Morpheus 2.3 series, see this blog post or check out the changelog for details.

Note Mac M1 users: Because a required Qt5 library has not yet been ported, the documentation built into the GUI currently has a different appearance on newer Mac hardware.
