Hi all,

This is to inform you all that the next stable McStas release 2.6 will become available during January 2020.

- If you have any useful contributions to make, in the shape of instruments or components, now would be a good time. :-)

I would also like to mention that we aim to make an official beta-release of our experimental McStas 3.0 available soon.
This will happen following v. 2.6 within the first months of the new year, and be the first release to support running
simulations on Nvidia GPU processors. Probably not all of our components will be ported at release, but most of what
you do on CPU’s today will be available!

A short set of slides is available at http://www.mcstas.org/news/Porting_McStas_to_GPU_via_OpenACC.pdf that outline
what is coming, when we started and how we achieved it… :-)

Seasons greetings on behalf of the McStas team,

Peter Willendrup
