ATK 11.2 released
« on: March 3, 2011, 15:32 »
ATK 11.2 is is a major update compared to ATK 10.8 (not to mention 2008.10), and we urge all users to upgrade.

For more detailed information on new features etc, see the release letter.

Risk-free upgrade
Please note that upgrading from 10.8 to 11.2 is <i>risk free</i>, as there is 100% compatibility with 10.8 input and output (NC) files. Thus you will be able to enjoy the improved performance, not least memory-wise, and new features like transmission pathways and classical potentials, without worrying about upgrading your scripts etc.

A compact list of some new features include
  • Improved performance and lower memory consumption
  • Preconditioners, a new Poisson solver, and scattering states
  • LDOS
  • Transmission eigenchannel analysis
  • Transmission pathways (local currents)
  • Complex band structure
  • Improved optimization via stress
  • GUI updates
  • Ghost atoms
  • Molecular dynamics
  • New engines: ATK-Classical and ATK-PlaneWave

We hope you all will enjoy ATK 11.2, and look forward to your feedback, and not least requests for new features in future versions!
