Hello again,

A quick note for those running on Debian-type systems:

Please note that an apt-get dist-upgrade should automatically update your installed mcstas to 2.1rc1!

Dear all,

A public beta-release of the forthcoming McStas 2.1 is now available.

As this is a beta-release that will be replaced by the official McStas 2.1, it is available via a special download page:


The public beta includes an updated model for the ESS moderator (ESS_moderator.comp), including the "pancake" brilliance model and vertical assymetry of the cold moderator brilliance. (Special thanks to Troels Schoenfeldt and Esben Klinkby!) The final McStas 2.1 may still include further improvements of this new source component.

Please also consult the new platform-oriented installation pages:

• Linux (and general Unix) Installation page at http://www.mcstas.org/download/install_linux/
• Mac OS X Installation page at http://www.mcstas.org/download/install_mac_os_x/
• Windows Installation page at http://www.mcstas.org/download/install_windows/

If you are on Unix (Linux/Mac) and want to keep your McStas 1.x or 2.0 alongside McStas 2.1rc or the forthcoming 2.1, please use our migration scripts

• mcstas 1.x migration script from http://trac.mccode.org/browser/trunk/tools/migration-tool/migrate-mcstas-1.x.sh
• mcstas 2.0 migration script from http://trac.mccode.org/browser/trunk/tools/migration-tool/migrate-mcstas-2.0.sh

Best regards,
