Qucs 0.0.2 has been released.
The Qucs project (Qucs = Qt universal circuit simulator) today
announced the immediate availability of Qucs 0.0.2, a Qt-based
advanced and powerful microwave circuit simulator for GNU/Linux and
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 provides a GUI based on Qt for setting up microwave circuits, a
simulator, which is able to simulate the small- and large signal
behaviour of microwave circuits. The results can be shown on a
special presentation page in different formats (rect, polar, smith,
Compiling Qucs 0.0.2
The complete source code for Qucs 0.0.2 may be freely
downloaded. Instructions on compiling and installing Qucs 0.0.2 are
included in the software archive. Only Qt-Libs > 3.1 and the glibc
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.
Changes in this release
The new release includes lots of feature enhancements. There are now
translations into German and Italian, some new components and
paintings, deleting and renaming of documents, support of equations,
diagrams can show independent and more-dimensional graphs, markers can
be set on graphs and a (very modest) help system has been included.
The simulator supports now the DC analysis, the S-parameter analysis
can handle arbitrary port impedances and parameter sweeps are
possible. This release comes also with some documentation concerning
the know-how implemented in the simulator.
