We report in this paper recent progress in the AUSM-family numerical fluxes, with emphasis on their capability for resolving shock and contact discontinuities, preserving density positivity, and maintaining shock stability in multidimensions. The schemes can produce a shock without any intermediate structure and satisfies entropy condition.
