June 4th, 2004: NOBUGS conference
The next NOBUGS conference will take place
October 18th-20th, 2004 at the PSI
March 5th, 2004: McStas 1.8 is here!
The new version is finally out! Get it from the download page!
A lot of new and improved stuff is in there, have a look at the CHANGES document.
Two other important pieces of information is that
- McStas is now formally covered by the GNU General Public License
- We now offer nightly CVS
builds of what we have in the development source tree. Please note
that the CVS versions are not to be regarded as stable:
- Features may come and go
- Bugs will occur
- But you will always have the 'bleeding edge' features of McStas
The reason for providing CVS versions and licensing by the GPL is
to further encourage contributions to the project. Our policy is that
anyone who wants to contribute something useful should be allowed to,
and will be given proper credit for his work. The current release
includes work by the core developer
team as well as:
- Stuart Ansell and Dickon Champion, ISIS
- Uwe Filges, PSI
- Chris Ling, Ross Stewart, ILL
- Lise Arleth, Risø
Thank you for your contributions!
February 18th, 2004: Mailing list + new search capabilities
On February 10th, the McStas mailinglist was restored.
Today, a new search page was added to the
website. This enables McStas users to search the McStas websites at
RISØ and ILL as well
as the mailinglist
January 29th, 2004: Mailing list / website trouble
The Risø IT department has been updating the webserver
running the mailinglist and website of McStas. Because of
technical problems the website has been down for a couple of days,
and the mailinglist is still not functioning correctly. We hope to
have everything working again soon.
January 12th, 2004: SPIE conference in Denver, august 2nd-6th
Don't forget the SPIE conference:
ADVANCES IN COMPUTATIONAL METHODS FOR X-RAY AND NEUTRON
We would like to see many McStas related presentations there! :)
