Software and Ongoing Projects:
Short paper describing the planner, to be published in the 2011 International Planning Competition booklet.
This planner has been implemented on top of the Fast Downward system and was the runner up of the
optimal track of the 2011 International Planning Competition.
The planner is also incorporated in the winner of the IPC - Fast Downward Stone Soup.
