WHAT'S NEW IN THIS VERSION?
See the "What's New?" section in the User Manual.

UPGRADING
Most models created in earlier versions of NetLogo will work in
NetLogo @@@VERSION@@@ with only minor updates to the code.  If
you have trouble, please consult
http://ccl.northwestern.edu/netlogo/docs/transition.html.

MAILING LISTS
We have three mailing lists for NetLogo:
- netlogo-announce: occasional release announcements only
- netlogo-users: discussions about NetLogo
- netlogo-educators: discussions about teaching with NetLogo
http://ccl.northwestern.edu/netlogo/ has info on all three.

CONTACT US!
The NetLogo home page is at:
  http://ccl.northwestern.edu/netlogo/
for contact information, or to report a bug, visit
  http://ccl.northwestern.edu/netlogo/contact.shtml
the source code is hosted here:

HOW TO RUN NETLOGO

- Windows users: Choose NetLogo from the Start menu.

- Mac users: Double click on the NetLogo icon in the NetLogo
  folder.  (You may wish to drag this icon to the dock for easy

  commands would be:
  $ cd @@@UNIXNAME@@@
  $ ./netlogo.sh
  You must have Java 6 or higher installed.
