There is a paper out describing how to use (and tune) the optimization algorithm in GenX, differential evolution. You can find it at: http://dx.doi.org/10.1107/S0021889811041446 . If you do not have access to the journal just send me a mail and I will send you a pre-print.
There are binary versions released as betas for windows and package for ubuntu compiled by aglavic. If you have one of those operating systems go to http://sourceforge.net/projects/genx/ to test the binary versions.
