Hello everyone,

We are almost done preparing the last of the McStas 1.x releases, McStas 1.12b, should be ready next week.

If you have useful self-written components among your files, now would be a good time to contribute them. Contributed components go in the contrib/ part of the library. The only 'requirements' for contributing are:

1) Well-written component header (have a look at existing comps for the formatting).
2) An example instrumentfile, with reasonable default input parameter values, generating data on monitors.

McStas 2.0 is expected around new year 2011, and will break certain backward compatibility. By contributing now, your components will be included and working in the McStas 1.12b release - and ported by the development team to McStas 2.0.

Best regards,

Peter Willendrup
