May 26th, 2014: alphaMELTS 1.3.2
« on: May 26, 2014, 10:12:43 am »
Version 1.3.2 was posted on May 26th, 2014.

Versions 1.3.1 and 1.3.2 are mainly bug-fix releases, though there is now an option to return to the menu if you have forgotten to turn off phase diagram mode when you choose menu option 4 (not that I ever do that!).

A new version of VM (virtual machine) alphaMELTS is also available, including alphaMELTS 1.3.2 and rhyolite-MELTS 1.0.2. As of v1.3.2 we are using the Open Virtualization Archive (.ova) format, which has a much easier installation process and should avoid the problems some users were having with very large zip files generated on Linux. We have done most of the setting up of a folder to be shared between the guest (MELTS Lubuntu) and the host system (i.e. probably Windows), and made a few tweaks so that VM alphaMELTS is more user-friendly. See the Download page for more information, including how to complete the Shared folder set up.


P.S. As of v1.3.1, support for Mac OS X Leopard was removed, based on Poll results. There are several other platforms that alphaMELTS should work on but that we cannot actively test, including Vista, Lion, and Mountain Lion. We will continue to support XP for the time being but testing is limited to virtual machines. Remember, if you would like your operating system to be supported then Please vote!
