Release Notes: New features include graphical output (via gnuplot), reproductive isolation and speciation, an extra demo, and documentation changes. Several bugs have been found and fixed, and the problem of demos and test pointing at the wrong place has been fixed.
Release Notes: The changes in this release make the package easier to install, easier to make and rate your phenotypes, and easier to converge. New features include two types of mutation rate, multiple per-genotype mutations, optional phenotype files, and path structure changes.
Release Notes: Users can now specify crossover methods, and there are more choices with a small mutation language. Reproductive physiology can be evolved. This is all fairly new and exciting, but very experimental. A reorganisation of the Genotypes.pm tidies it up considerably, making it easier to edit and browse. Reter is now less memory hungry. In Genotypes, compound mutations can now be specified, such as reverse intron, reverse outron, repeat plasmid, etc. Defining a crossover rate is now possible.
Release Notes: The Rater now allows genotypes to breed within groups, much akin to village selection. This powerful tool increases variation, and avoids convergence on local optima. A new frontend has been added that take cares of the setup and running of your population. A new module, named MyBeasties::Simple, has been added. A lot of extra functionality was added with the recursive groups_mating method.
Release Notes: This release contains full functionality for Genetic Algorithms (evolving with binary strings). Medelevian emulations are now possible with binary parts. The genetic programming tutorial is now included in the distribution.
