ATK 11.2 released


Forum Administrator:
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
* 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!
