We are proud to announce version 4.0.0 of Mantid.
This release sees the introduction of a brand new graphical user interface, Mantid Workbench, which will eventually replace MantidPlot. The Mantid Workbench has been built from the ground up to allow more automated testing in an effort to vastly improve on the stability of MantidPlot. In addition it offers:

  *   matplotlib<https://matplotlib.org/>-based plotting: Matplotlib is the de-facto standard plotting package for the scientific community and one of its core goals is to produce publication-quality plots
  *   cleaner interface: MantidPlot had many toolbars, buttons and menus that would confuse new users.  Mantid Workbench aims to have a simpler interface and removes many legacy tools that were unused from MantidPlot
  *   support for high-dpi displays: Based on Qt5, allowing for improved handling of high-resolution screens such as retina displays
Please see the full workbench release notes<http://docs.mantidproject.org/nightly/release/v4.0.0/mantidworkbench.html#workbench-v4-release-notes> for more information along with the new documentation<http://docs.mantidproject.org/nightly/workbench/index.html#workbench>.
This is just one of the many improvements in this release, so please take a look at the release notes, which are filled with details of the important changes and improvements in many areas. The development team has put a great effort into making all of these improvements within Mantid and we would like to thank all of our beta testers for their time and effort helping us to make this another reliable version of Mantid.

Throughout the Mantid project we put a lot of effort into ensuring Mantid is a robust and reliable product. Thank you to everyone that has reported any issues to us. Please keep on reporting any problems you have, or crashes that occur to the Mantid Forum<http://forum.mantidproject.org/>.
