New Match! version 3.5.3

November 23, 2017

We have just released a new Match! version 3.5.3 in which we have added refinement of unit cell parameters for indexed unit cell, in addition to some other minor improvements as well as a variety of bug fixes.

In detail, the following new functions and bug fixes have been implemented:

  • Refinement of unit cell parameters (based on currently marked peaks) has been added to the "Indexing results" dialog.
  • New command "Search/Reset search-match results" clears the figure-of-merit (FoM) values and other results of the previous search-match calculation.
  • The dialog "File information" shows the information of current *.mtd file/document.
  • Match! now also works with recent (October 2017 or later) versions of FullProf.
  • Several bugs have been fixed, most of them affecting indexing:
    • The background control points were separated from the background curve if the scaling on the y-axis was set to "cts" (counts).
    • Using the command "Load as experimental" on a Match list entry caused a crash of the program in many cases.
    • The demo version did not display the information window about available updates but a false message "Update subscription has expired".
    • Miller indices (hkl) were not displayed for COD- or user database entries if a "mixed" wavelength with alpha1- and alpha2-contribution was set (e.g. the default Cu Kalpha).
    • After using Dicvol for indexing, even indexed peaks were only marked as "correlated".
    • When using Dicvol for indexing, the space group suggestion read from the Dicvol output files may not have been correct if a solution other than the first one was selected from the table of indexing results.
    • After closing the Dicvol solution selection dialog, only a single solution was taken over to the table of indexing results, even if two or more solutions (unit cells) had been marked.
    • Special characters in the sample ID (like the degree sign) switched over to an unreadable character when saving/loading documents or running the "Undo" command.
    • Pictures were not shown in the report if the corresponding path contained non-ASCII characters.
    • The report options are now preserved within the session as well as when saving and loading documents.
    • Some minor bugs have been fixed as well.
