it is a pleasure to announce two new PLUMED releases and a new user questionnaire.
Release 2.1.3 is a maintenance release on the 2.1.x branch and solves a few bugs, including several bugs related to virial (useful for NPT simulations), FIT_TO_TEMPLATE, ENSEMBLE, and RANDOM_EXCHANGES keywords. See: http://goo.gl/22zpFI
We encourage all the users to upgrade to this version.
Release 2.2b is a brand new release that contains several new features. See http://goo.gl/2GFaco
We invite users to try it and provide feedbacks.
You can find both releases in the download section of the plumed webpage. They are also tagged on git (v2.1.3 and v2.2b).
For those of you using the master branch on git: you might want to switch to the v2.2 branch, since we will start soon to add possibly unstable features on the master branch.
Finally, we would like to hear your opinion on the work we are doing on PLUMED. Those of you who filled our user questionnaire last year might recognize that many of the changes in PLUMED were influenced by your answers. We thus decided to prepare a new questionnaire that you can fill here: http://goo.gl/forms/UNm5fXN6ax . This should take no more than 5 minutes. Please help us in making PLUMED a better tool!
