  1. Number of cases has been increased from 999 to 99999.

The name of the variable is itout and it tells number calls since last tout-output step. itout equal to "0" indicate this timestep will be stored on id- and gp-file. The variable can be used by users that writes own source code, for making printouts to external files.
