    v1 v1  
     1= EXPGUI: work in progress =
     3Lots of work is taking place on the development version of EXPGUI. These changes will appear in the standard release, sometime soon (August/September?)
     5New capabilities in EXPGUI
     6 * Interface to distance-angle (DISAGL) parameters*
     7 * Distance soft-contraints [restraints] module*
     8 * Rigid body module (not documented, yet.)*
     9 * Interface to fix atom coordinates*
     11New capabilities in LIVEPLOT
     12 * Publication quality PDF export (all platforms)
     13 * Pagnification regions: multiply intensity as a function of 2theta, Q,...
     14 * Plot I/sigma(I)
     15 * Edit title
     16 * Improved placement of automatic tick marks (now the default)
     17These changes are intended to make LIVEPLOT more useful for preparing diffraction figures for presentations and publication.
     19Diagnostics/Error Recovery
     20 * Blowup detector: EXPGUI warns when a corrupt .EXP file is encountered
     21 * Revert menu: Eases returning to a previous refinement
     23In addition, significant revisions have been made to the documentation and there have been many smaller bug fixes. I hope more bugs have been fixed than introduced.
     25bug fixes:
     26 * InstEdit bugs have been addressed and a new menu item makes creating a new file more clear.
     27 * Fixed bug in setting the max 2theta value for CW data (caused by a TOF fix).
     28 * On Windows 7 -- some systems -- EXPGUI fails to expand itself after a run of GENLES, etc. The "Iconify during GSAS" option has been removed on this platform, since that prevents the problem.
     30Note, items marked with a * are thanks to a large extent to the efforts of Charles Lake of Indiana University of Pennsylvania. Thanks to also Vince West who implemented a gnuplot export in CMPR that I ripped off for LIVEPLOT.
