Qucs 0.0.7 has been released.
The Qucs project (Qucs = Quite universal circuit simulator) today
announced the immediate availability of Qucs 0.0.7, a Qt-based
advanced and powerful microwave circuit simulator for GNU/Linux and
Qucs, including all its libraries and its applications, is available
as free (as in speech) software 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,
tabular, 3d-cartesian, locus and polar-smith combinations).
Compiling Qucs 0.0.7
The complete source code for Qucs 0.0.7 may be freely
downloaded. Instructions on compiling and installing Qucs 0.0.7 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
Qucs is now known as 'Quite Universal Circuit Simulator'. The GUI
additionally supports text painting rotations in subcircuit symbols,
Latex-like mnemonics (e.g. \tau) in graphic texts and diagram labels
and a new tool was born: a library manager already including some
transistors, diodes, substrates, etc. Several small improvements and
bug fixes have been incorporated. The simulation backend supports
some new functions in the equation solver, i.e. unwrap(), rad2deg()
and deg2rad(). Also a heavy bug in the non-linear operational
amplifier model has been fixed.
A lot of thanks go to the translators and to the supportive user
responses so far encouraging us to improve the software. We couldn't
have done it without you!
