SHARP 2.0.4 - release notes

  1. Introduction
  2. List of changes
  3. Installation


These are the release notes for the new 2.0.4 production version of SHARP. Between versions 2.0.1 and the current 2.0.4 release, only minor changes have occured - mostly invisible to the user.

The current production version of SHARP (2.0.4) is intended as a drop-in replacement of SHARP 2.0.1 (the previous production version). It can be run in the same way as SHARP 2.0.1 using the updated interface (SUSHI 3.2.x).

List of changes

  1. MTZ files

    Since this current version has been linked against the CCP4 5.0.2 set of libraries (for handling MTZ files), the MTZ files produced will have this format. Therefore, the current release has been mainly tested (and is supported) under CCP4 5.0.2 (4.2.2 might still work - but you are encouraged to update to the latest 5.0.X release of CCP4).

    Important :  Please make sure to also read the release note for the latest version of Sushi (which also contains the autoSHARP set of programs and scripts).

  2. This is a production release

    The code has been extensively tested on both simulated data and on all the real data sets at our disposal. It was in active beta testing for over 6 months. However, testing is never exhaustive and can only reveal bugs, but not the absence of problems. We would be grateful for any feedback from the users, especially those familiar with the previous versions of the program, about potential problems as well as overall code behaviour.
