What happened to DIALS 1.13
We decided to use the release number 13 as a reference marker for developers to help migrating code changes to the upcoming DIALS 2.0 release.

DIALS 1.14.0 (2019-03-18):

  • dials.image_viewer can stack images without having to restart the viewer.
  • dev.dials.generate_shadow_mask is a new (unsupported) tool to create HDF5 shadow masks from the DIALS model of the goniometer shadow
  • dials.apply_mask now works with experiments (#673)
  • dials.scale general improvements to algorithm stability, speed and memory performance improvements
  • DIALS 1.14 is the final DIALS 1 release, and will be supported for a longer period than usual.

xia2 0.5.871:

  • This is the final xia2 0.5 release, and will be supported for a longer period than usual.

Mar 1, 2019
To celebrate the many achievements since the 1.0 release.

To make a release you need to
 - make a new release branch (git checkout -b dials-2.0)
 - make any change on that branch (this is important),
   recommend changing the default version number in util/
 - commit this change, preferably with a useful release message
 - tag this commit (git tag -a v2.0.0), again preferably with a useful message

DIALS 1.13 branch point
This does not mark the start of a release branch.
It serves as a reserved branch point in case someone needs to refer
back to, or build on, the codebase before the DIALS 2.0 commits but
outside of the supported DIALS 1.14 release branch.
