New Match! version 3.6.0

January 17, 2018

A new Match! version 3.6.0 has just been released, providing a significantly improved peak searching and background determination, along with several more enhancements.

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

  • Peak searching is much faster and more accurate by now. Remember that you can quickly adjust the peak searching sensitivity, simply by pressing F2 (increase) or F3 (decrease), after which a new peak searching with the updated sensitivity will be run immediately.
  • Background determination has been improved: You can now adjust the flexibility of the automatically determined background by pressing Ctrl+F2 (increase) or Ctrl+F3 (decrease).
  • The background curve is now displayed by default (can be turned off in the Graphics-options).
  • New command "Peaks/Add as restraint(s)" searches for (accepts only) entries that contain peaks at positions close to the marked peaks (see restraint "Peaks/Ranges").
  • Indexing using Treor has been improved, b yactivating the Treor option "IDIV=1" (adjustment of the 7 first lines by higher order lines).
  • When displaying multiple experimental patterns at reduced pattern distance, the legend of the lower patterns is also displayed at the top (right below the one of the top-most pattern).
  • PDF subset files (*.sub, *.sea) can now be imported as an alternative to Match! answer set files (*.mta), e.g. as selection criteria on the "References" tab of the "Restraints" tab, or when running the "Import predefined selection" command in the match list.
  • The parameter "minimum relative intensity for peak correlation" (both on the Search-Match as well as the Indexing tab of the Options dialog) can now also be used to define a minimum intensity for the automatic selection of peaks for indexing.
  • Several bugs have been fixed, most of them affecting indexing:
    • Indexing was not available if only peak data but no raw/profile data were present.
    • Some minor bugs have been fixed as well.

Match! version 3 users should download and install the new version from here.
