Long duration gamma-ray bursts are associated with the death of massive stars as earlier observations and theoretical arguments had suggested. Supernova 2003dh observed with GRB030329 confirms this picture. Current progress in developing numerical special relativistic hydrodynamics codes with adaptive mesh refinement is allowing for high-resolution simulations of relativistic flow relevant for simulations of GRBs.
