Votca 1.4

posted Oct 29, 2016, 11:35 AM by Christoph Junghans

Votca 1.4 was released under the name 'SuperKurt'.

A detailed list of changes can be found here:

Many many changes happened since 1.3.1, most importantly one new
iterative methods:  coordination iterative Boltzmann inversion. In addition,
we also added regularization to IMC, a  full featured XML Topology Reader
and, dihedral support in csg_fmatch.

Thanks to everyone, which contributed new features and bug fixes for this
release! Details here: 

Due to a lack of developers we will NOT fix any bugs in votca 1.3.X
anymore, so we encourage everyone to update and use the new version.

Votca 1.3.1 was released.

It will most likely be the last version of the Votca 1.3 series as we are working heavily on Votca 1.4. The 1.3.1 release contains some minor bug fixes, most importantly a fix in the histogram class of tools and an improvement for cmake's detection of libgromacs in csg.

Finally, after a long time, the first release candidate of Votca 1.3
("SuperUzma") was pushed out.

A detailed list of changes can be found here:
(btw. we moved to github)

Many many changes happened since 1.2, most importantly two new
iterative methods: relative entropy and simplex optimization got added
and more simulation back-ends (incl. hoomd-blue and dl_poly) are
supported.

A paper going along with the release can be found here:

Due to a lack of developers we will NOT fix any bugs in votca 1.2.X
anymore, so we encourage everyone to update and use the new version.

Google Code is closing its doors and as a result of that VOTCA's
project page and source code repositories on Google Code are now
read-only.

Repositories, Issue tracker and Wiki have been moved to github.

Votca 1.2.4

posted Aug 31, 2014, 4:01 PM by Christoph Junghans

Votca 1.2.4 was released. It will (again) most likely be the last version of the Votca 1.2  series as we are working heavily on Votca 1.3. The 1.2.4 release contains mostly installation improvements (support for Gromacs 5.0 & Boost 1.53), better support for MacOs and some minor bug fixes, most importantly a fix for the calculation of the thermodynamic force in the Xsplit case.
