It enables you to load various types of data from different sources into a fast, flexible, and functional editable grid supporting sorting, grouping, reporting, creation of banded columns, drag’n’drop for buttons, and plenty of other handy functions. This data grid helps novice and experienced Qt developers with Delphi and C++ backgrounds to use the same comprehensive advanced editable grid capabilities that they’ve grown accustomed to in corresponding IDEs and that are not part of the standard Qt library.
Release Notes: This version fixes several mission-critical errors and improves rendering of the grid's UI primitives if the Office2007/Ribbon styles is used.
The massXpert software package is a mass spectrometry environment for linear (bio-)polymers. It inherits all the innovations of GNU polyxmass. It allows the detailed definition of new polymer chemistries in the XpertDef module. These chemistry definitions are then used in the desktop calculator-like mass calculator (XpertCalc) and in the sophisticated polymer sequence editor and (bio-)chemical/mass spectrometric simulations module (XpertEdit). Available simulations include polymer and monomer chemical modifications, polymer sequence cleavage, gas-phase fragmentation, m/z ratio calculations, and more.
Release Notes: This release fixes a serious bug that seems to have appeared while upgrading the Qt library version. That bug would make the program crash when computing cleavage oligomers in "stacking oligomers" mode. It improves the way cleavage and mass calculation options are provided as feedback when selecting oligomers in the list of oligomers. It changes the cleavage oligomer display from a tree view to a table view, which is simpler both programmatically and functionally (for the user).

Seed7 is a general purpose programming language. It is a higher level language compared to Ada, C++, and Java. In Seed7, new statements and operators can be declared easily. Functions with type results and type parameters are more elegant than a template or generics concept. Object orientation is used when it brings advantages and not in places when other solutions are more obvious. Although Seed7 contains several concepts of other programming languages, it is generally not considered as a direct descendant of any other programming language.
Release Notes: Declarations were moved from "seed7_05.s7i" to new libraries. This libraries are included from "seed7_05.s7i", so this causes no change in existing programs. Declarations were moved between some libraries. Documentation comments were added or improved in various files. The function 'read_zip_dir' was added to the "zip.s7i" library. Checks for 'length', 'tell' and 'seek' with STD_NULL were added to "chkexc.sd7". The interpreter, compiler, and runtime library were improved to support searching for a string from a given position to the left. Checks for the function 'rpos' were added to "chkstr.sd7".
