Here are the main changes since the last release (3251).

Move rate caching and interpolation from net to rates to make them available for more general use.

Add Traxler option for thermohaline (not verified yet)
         thermohaline_option = 'Kippenhahn'
            ! determines which method to use for calculating thermohaline diffusion coef
            ! if == 'Traxler', use method of Traxler, Garaud, & Stellmach, ApJ Letters, 728:L29 (2011).
            ! if == 'Kippenhahn', use method of Kippenhahn, R., Ruschenplatt, G., & Thomas, H.-C. 1980, A&A, 91, 175.

Bug fixes for element diffusion -- now gives smoother brunt (see attached slide)

As usual, let me know if you run into problems.   I've checked this with ifort and gfortran, but you never know....
