Version 2.0.4 released as a stable version

Dear colleagues,

The new version 2.0.4 of the C-Munipack software is available for download. The status of the 2.0.x branch has been changed to 'stable'. It means that it has been tested, it should not contain significant bugs and it is intended for ordinary users.

The main goals of this version was to allow one to define and work with multiple datasets (they are called projects). In previous versions, when you wanted to start a new task, you have to remove the frames that were registered in the application while deleting all temporary files (photometry files, etc.). Now, each task (project) has its own directory and the temporary files as well as the configuration is kept in it. One can easily switch between tasks easily or even work on multiple tasks at a time.... read more
