Enhancements compared to current official version

  • Indexing (unit cell parameter calculation) from marked peaks using Treor or Dicvol
  • [Windows version only] Structure solution using Endeavour
  • New command "File/Import/Crystal structure (CIF)"
  • New command "Peaks/Import from file" adds peaks from a 2-column-, Stoe peak data or PANalytical UDI-file to the current experimental pattern
  • A new button "Auto select" has been added to the "Crystallite Size Estimation" dialog, using which the automatic selection of peaks for being included in the average crystallite size estimation calculation can be triggered.
  • The 2theta values of the peaks can now be displayed close to their top in the pattern graphics, just like the d- and hkl-values.
  • Special versions for Windows 32-bit and 64-bit as well as Windows XP/Vista have become available.
  • Several bugs have been fixed:
    • Due to a bug, modifying e.g. the peak intensity in the pattern graphics using the mouse caused the calculated profile and/or the peak intensity to drop significantly.
    • A bug in the calculation of the initial scaling parameters for the Rietveld refinement has been fixed.
    • Some bugs affecting the update of the crystallite size table if e.g. peak data or selected phases have changed has been resolved.
    • Due to a bug, excluded ranges were deleted e.g. when loading a document file or running the "Undo" command.
    • An issue affecting the selection of the FullProf directory on Mac OS X has been resolved.
    • Several minor bugs have been fixed as well.
