One particular aspect of this release we would like to highlight is that it is now possible to install a Python package, called mantid, that gives access to the Mantid algorithms and workspaces without bringing along the GUI. The package is available through the widely-used package manager Conda thereby making it easy to install mantid alongside other Python packages. Please see the Conda installation instructions for how to access the packages.
Please take a look at the release notes, which are filled with details of all of the changes and improvements in many other areas. The development team has put a great effort into making all of these improvements and we would like to thank all of our beta testers for their time and effort helping us to make this another reliable version. Thank you to everyone that has reported any issues to us and please keep on reporting any problems you have on our forum or by email on firstname.lastname@example.org.
