@martyngigg martyngigg released this Mar 25, 2019

We are proud to announce version 4.0.0 of Mantid.

This release sees the introduction of a brand new graphical user interface, MantidWorkbench, which will eventually replace MantidPlot. The MantidWorkbench has been built from the ground up to allow more automated testing in an effort to vastly improve on the stability of MantidPlot. In addition it offers:

  • matplotlib-based plotting: Matplotlib is the defacto-standard plotting package for the scientific community and one of its core goals is to produce publication-quality plots
  • cleaner interface: MantidPlot had many toolbars, buttons and menus that would confuse new users. MantidWorkbench aims to have a simpler interface and removes many legacy tools that were unused from MantidPlot
  • support for high-dpi displays: Based on Qt5, allowing for improved handling of high-resolution screens such as retina displays

Please see the full workbench release notes for more information along with the new documentation.

This is just one 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.

We are proud to announce version 3.13.0 of Mantid.

This release includes a first implementation of Project Recovery for Mantidplot, Mantid maintains a recovery script while running, in the event of a crash or unexpected shutdown of Mantidplot Mantid will attempt to recover to it's most recent recovery checkpoint. This feature may not fully recover in all situations, but we will continue to improve it in future releases. There have also been some significant performance enhancements in the instrument view, improvements in error reporting, and the peaks view within the slice viewer now handles non-orthogonal axes.

These are just some 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.

@Mantid-Matthew Mantid-Matthew released this Mar 20, 2018

We are proud to announce version 3.12.0 of Mantid.

We have included the Mantid Mslice interface with this release for the first time, this alternative to the Dave or matlab variants has been developed separately for some time, but has now been included with Mantid to make installation easier.

This version of Mantid will also go live across 6 instruments at the ILL with the startup in March.

We have also listened to your concerns about stability issues with previous releases during long experiments and have implemented error reporting into Mantidplot to capture information about crashes allowing us to quantify the problems and help track them down and resolve them.

These are just some of 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 on our forum.

Installation packages can be found on our download page.

We are proud to announce version 3.11.0 of Mantid, celebrating 10 years of the Mantid project supporting Neutron and Muon research.

This release includes improvements to allow Mantid to handle scanning workspaces, where detectors may be in several locations for different time periods, and updates to the VSI to improve the performance of slicing regularly binned data. There have also been some significant performance enhancements for various algorithms within the framework due to the ongoing efforts to improving our handling of instrument geometry.
