The Qucs project (Qucs = Qt universal circuit simulator) today announced the immediate availability of Qucs 0.0.1, the first release of a Qt-based advanced and powerful microwave circuit simulator for GNU/Linux and other UNIXes.
Qucs, including all its libraries and its applications, is available for free under Open Source licenses. Qucs can be obtained in source code from <http://sourceforge.net/projects/qucs>.
Qucs 0.0.1 is the first official release which provides a GUI based on Qt for setting up microwave circuits, a simulator, which is able to simulate the small signal behaviour of microwave circuits. The results can be shown on a special presentation page in different formats (mag, polar, smith, tabular ...).
Compiling Qucs 0.0.1
The complete source code for Qucs 0.0.1 may be freely downloaded. Instructions on compiling and installing Qucs 0.0.1 are included in the software archive. Only Qt-Libs > 3.1 and the glibc are essential.
Besides the superb and invaluable efforts by the Qucs developers themselves, significant support for Qucs development has been provided by sourceforge.net and TrollTech. Thanks!
Qucs is an independent project of only a few developers, translators, etc, collaborating over the Internet to create and freely distribute a sophisticated, customizable and stable microwave circuit simulator. For enhancing the development speed we are looking for more developers, who want to support the Qucs Project.
