Multi-Worm Tracker / News: Recent posts

New patch released, fixing critical bugs.

Dear MWT users,

I have uploaded v1.2.0.2 of the MWT, which fixes several bugs.
Most critically, it fixes a bug with advanced tap stimulus settings where changes to the characteristics of the tap signal (duty cycle, etc) were not properly handled. There was also a bug in Choreography that caused it to incorrectly read data from the MWT which has been corrected.

The full, updated, source and new executables are available.... read more

1.1.1 released.

Dear MWT community,

Thanks to user feedback, a bug involving the initial feedback and ROI specification while using binning has been discovered and corrected. This has lead to a new release of the MWT, version 1.1.1.

This new executable has been released on sourceforge and is available in the Files section. Nothing has changed about the analysis or documentation, though the new 1.1.1 archive contains those files as well. You will only really need to download the executable archive, available under 1.1.1 Release/executable.... read more

Posted by Kerr Lab @ JFRC 2009-10-27 updated with bug fixes.

I have updated the archive, which contains everything, with the updated documentation AND an updated Chore.jar that contains bug fixes.

I have also replaced the stand-alone Chore.jar in the analysis sub-directory with this updated, fixed version of Chore.jar.

Update your software as appropriate.

MWT files reorganized, documentation update.

I have reorganized the sourceforge page to make available the different pieces we have released at specific sub-folders of the 1.1.0 release folder. Thus, you do not need to download the entire archive if all you need is a particular document, such as the User guide.

I have also updated the documentation to incorporate some user feedback, but only the installation guide has significantly changed.

I have not republished the main MWT archive yet.
