We finally have a new release of the Systems Biology Workbench. Here the release announcement:
We are pleased to announce a release of the Systems Biology Workbench 2.7.9,
The Systems Biology Workbench (SBW), is a software framework that allows heterogeneous application components-written in diverse programming languages and running on different platforms - to communicate and use each others' capabilities via a fast binary encoded -message system. Our goal was to create a simple, high performance, open -source software infrastructure which is easy to implement and understand. SBW enables applications (potentially running on separate, distributed computers) to communicate via a simple network protocol.
The interfaces to the system are encapsulated in client-side libraries that we provide for different programming languages.
Of primary focus for this release was to improve performance for core SBW components. Now roadRunner as well as all AutoLayout procedures are much faster than before. The ‘Simulation Tool’ now also allows performing frequency analysis experiments. Much effort has gone into making sure that this release works on the Win64 architecture. This release includes also fixes for Jarnac, JDesigner and most other applications we deliver with the framework.
For this Windows release we switched to a new compiler. Thus it is recommended to uninstall the previous version of SBW prior to installing this release. It is also recommended to install the compiler runtime components from: http://shrinkster.com/14xc
