Good luck with GTOC. Do you intend to use Orekit for this or do you use
your own flight dynamics code ?

Some parts are undergoing changes but this happens mostly on the trunk
where 3.0 is developed. FastMath has been added to both the branch and
the trunk. There was also some changes in the optimization framework for
convergence criterions, but we hope to have done this with compatibility
in mind in the branch (not in the trunk).

For what it's worth, I currently use the 2.x branch in the yet
unreleased version of Orekit and it works well (and yes, FastMath
improves computation speed for this type of problems).
