Diamond version 4 has been released
October 28, 2014
Today, the long awaited new version 4 of our software package "Diamond" has been released!
A lot of improvements have been incorporated in this most recent version of our
established software for crystal structure visualization:
One of the major improvements is the introduction of the so-called
Auto Picture Creator: In this
new docking pane you can easily select the section of the structure picture that shall be drawn
(e.g. unit cell range), apply design schemes and many more options with just one or two mouse clicks.
Diamond will instantly create or update the structure picture automatically according to these settings.
This new feature can be used instead or in addition to the classical step-by-step building up of the
structure picture model.
More new features also improve the
and much more.
The complete information about the new features and improvements compared to version 3
is available as function list and
