After six years of development, Idaho National Laboratory is proud to
announce that the Multiphysics Object Oriented Simulation Environment
(MOOSE) framework is now available as open source software!  The main
website can be found at http://mooseframework.com and the code is being
developed on GitHub: https://github.com/idaholab/moose

Built on top of PETSc and libMesh, MOOSE provides a modular, pluggable
system aimed at accelerating the development of complex, multiphysics
applications.  Over the last six years it was licensed by over 60
institutions world-wide and has been utilized to create over 40 different
multiphysics applications simulating everything from groundwater migration
to nuclear reactors.

A sample of some of the capability within MOOSE:

* Fully-coupled, fully-implicit multiphysics solver
* Dimension independent physics
* Scalable hybrid parallelism (largest runs >100,000 CPU cores!)
* Modular development simplifies code reuse
* Built-in mesh adaptivity
* Continuous and Discontinuous Galerkin (DG) (at the same time!)
* Intuitive parallel multiscale solves
* Dimension agnostic, parallel geometric search (for contact related
* Flexible, plugable graphical user interface
* ~30 plugable interfaces allow specialization of every part of the solve
