Fixed a broken Zip-file (Win32)

The zip-file for the Win32 version was damaged, after decompressing it showed duplicate files. We replaced it with an (hopefully) undamaged version.

NeSSi2 beta.6 released (part 1)

Dear NeSSi2 users,

we are happy to announce the first part of new NeSSi2 release. The main changes in this release are:

Support for simulation artifact repositories: This feature is based on Maven and is still experimental.
Support for multiple networks in one project.
Plug-in API for defining termination conditions for simulations.
Support for synchronizing simulations.

The upcoming part two of this release will also allow simulating energy networks. Currently we are in the process of creating icons for the editor, than can be distributed with NeSSi2. Also this part is developed in an ongoing research project, so there still may be some last minute changes required, if discover problems in running our experiments. So hopefully, the second part will be available within the next three months.... read more
