Release Notes: A new model of gamma nuclear interactions using the Bertini cascade was added. The Bertini model for pi-, K-, and Sigma- for nuclear capture at rest was introduced, along with the WentzelVI model for multiple scattering of e+ and e- above 100 MeV in all physics lists for HEP applications. Shen and Ion/proton cross-sections for ions are used. The cross-section for light ions including deuteron was improved. The INCL cascade model can now handle heavy-ion collisions. A new electro-nuclear interaction model has been added. A combination of FTF and Precompound models is used for anti-proton and anti-Sigma+. There were other enhancements and bugfixes.
Release Notes: This release adds assorted bugfixes and enhancements.
Release Notes: Numerous enhancements and bugfixes.
Release Notes: This release adds experimental multithreading support.
Release Notes: The CMake system for installation has been now extended to cover all features. A new "Base-material" approach allows sharing internal tables between similar materials. Reviewed and updated body tissue compositions according to ICRU Report 46 (1992). Most data is updated to ENDF/B-VII. Data has been added for Zinc and Tantalum. Anti-triton has been added to anti-barions. A new Bremsstrahlung model based on Penelope v2008 has been added. GCC 4.6 issues have been fixed.
