Fixed Windows Distribution

I have uploaded a corrected windows distribution for Cain 1.4. The previous installer did not include the wxPython package. The installation worked when upgrading from version 1.3, but not when performing a clean installation.

Refreshed Cain 1.4 distributions.

I have updated the distributions for version 1.4. These releases fix a glitch in the documentation. The current version of wxPython does not properly display tables in HTML help files. I have replaced the tables with formatted text.

Cain 1.4 Windows installer

I released a new version of the Windows installer. The one that I posted before had an unusual error: The application only worked if Python was installed. (Thus I initially did not notice the error.) The problem was due to a corrupted installation of Python on my Windows machine. In any case the updated installer should work correctly.

Cain 0.8

Cain 0.8 fixes some errors and adds support for Python 2.4. There is a new solver that generates histogram output.

Cain performs stochastic and deterministic simulations of chemical reactions. It can spawn multiple simulation processes to utilize multi-core computers. It stores models, simulation parameters, and simulation results (populations and reaction counts) in an XML format. In addition, SBML models can be imported and exported. The models and simulation parameters can be read from input files or edited within the program.

Cain 0.7.1

Version 0.7.1 is released. This release introduces the ability to duplicate models to obtain large problems with which to test the scalability of algorithms. I have also added to the documentation.
