New release of CrystalGrower_X_22.214.171.124 is live! Download it here.
This version fixes a few minor bugs and one more major bug from version CrystalGrower_X_126.96.36.199 whereby the energies for a “net” simulation did not update if you set these energies to “vary” using the Graphical User Interface. There is also a new version of the visualiser CG Visualiser v1.70. For those using the Command Line Interface there is a small change to the input.txt file and a suitable updated version is included.
