After a long wait, ReX 0.8.0 is finally out! This version contains major internal changes, mainly regarding the program architecture. From a user interface point of view, not much has been modified, except that now “instrument”, “sample”, and “dataset” objects are now independent from “analysis” objects and are consequently shown in the project tree as separate nodes; this will support more flexible analysis definition in future versions.
Additional changes involve diffraction data manipulation and minor graphical improvements. Stand-alone packages are now available for the windows platform; these already contain a working Java runtime, and, although bigger, should solve a lot of compatibility problems due to Java installations.
