The ASCO project aims to bring circuit optimization capabilities to existing SPICE simulators using a high-performance parallel differential evolution (DE) optimization algorithm. It supports Eldo, HSPICE,
LTSpice, Spectre, Qucs, and ngspice.

This release makes the "postp" tool better support Spectre, supports Spectre in the "alter" tool, support the IEC 60063 preferred number series for resistors, capacitors, and inductors (E3, E6, E12, E24, E48, E96, and E192), and cleans the code.
A multiprocessor optimization algorithm message truncation error related to the MPI_SCATTERV function was corrected. The load balancer implementation was corrected. The RF module better supports Spectre. Support for LTspice and Spectre was added in the "postp" tool. The code was cleaned up. Minor improvements were made.
