We are proud to announce version 4.2 of Mantid.
THIS IS THE LAST RELEASE THAT WILL SUPPORT Python 2
From v4.3 onwards Mantid will no longer support Python 2 and scripts run in Mantid will have to change to reflect this. Time is Ticking!
NB. Mantid v4.3 will be released near the End of February 2020.
Interfaces, interfaces, interfaces! Hard to say but easy to use! One of the major changes for this release is the new Direct ALF View GUI for aligning samples on the ALF Instrument. There have also been serious developments in the Indirect Interfaces: The Analysis and Bayes Interfaces have been introduced to Mantid Workbench and all interfaces will accept lists to plot multiple spectra. Generally, usability has been improved, such as the cleaner ISIS SANS Interface and the multiple improvements in Workbench. The Script Repository has even been added into Workbench !
These are just a few of the many improvements in this release, so please take a look at the release notes, which are filled with details of the important changes and improvements in many areas. The development team has put a great effort into making all of these improvements within Mantid, and we would like to thank all of our beta testers for their time and effort helping us to make this another reliable version of Mantid.
Throughout the Mantid project, we put a lot of effort into ensuring Mantid is a robust and reliable product. Thank you to everyone that has reported any issues to us. Please keep on reporting any problems you have, or crashes that occur to the Mantid Forum.
