Systems Biology Workbench (SBW) 2.8.1 Release

We are pleased to announce the a release of the Systems Biology Workbench 2.8.1, available from:

http://sys-bio.org

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 other's 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. ... read more

Re-release of SBW 2.7.9

This release is a re-release of SBW 2.7.9, that was necessary because some windows machines

- all C++ modules and libraries have been recompiled with MSVC7

- JacobianViewer: The JacobianViewer was recompiled to run on 64bit systems in the 32bit
sub system.

- C# Inspector: BugFix: some UI-controls would not align properly when the window was resized.... read more
