- 4.62 vs. 4.71 (summerschool version) vs. 4.71 (final version)
We will be using a pre-release version of the Daylight 4.71 software
release for this course. It may change substantially between now
and release time. So, we will be teaching 4.62, and mentioning
likely new 4.71 features and programs. The reason for using this
pre-release version is to demonstrate very-likely and nearly-ready
new features of 4.71 (e.g., JavaGrins w/ SMARTS, the
Linux port, new ClogP, Daliserver).
- Fun stuff:
- Banquet Wednesday night at 6:30PM, leaving hotel at 6:00PM.
