[EnergyPlus_Support] New EnergyPlus V1.2.1 build available.

To EnergyPlus_Support at YahooGroups...

Good news and bad news....

Bad news--we found a few bugs in Version 1.2.1 that you need to know about...

- COMIS results were not correct in the V1.2.1.012 release.  This has been 

- DOE-2 Translator: The conversion in the DOE-2 Translator for Specific 
Heat is incorrect. The translated value is a factor of 1000 too small. The 
conversion should be J/Kg-K = 4186.8 * Btu/Lb-F. This has been corrected.

- In the eio output, the section "Zone Internal Gains/Equipment Information 
- Nominal" reports "Floor Area {m2}, # Occupants, Area per Occupant 
{m2/person}". The value being reported for "Area per Occupant" is the 
inverse {persons/m2}. This has been corrected.

- Several new error detections were added and other parts of the install 
cleaned up.

All addressed issues have been uploaded to the Updates area (important 
issues are highlighted in red):
File        : /Updates/Addressed_Issues-V1-2-1-022.htm

issues is now available from the EnergyPlus web site.
