thanks a lot for this new version and for your engagement in the Free
Software cause. Your softwares Athena, Artemis and Atoms have been a
corner stone in my research in the last 10 years. Thanks a lot also to
Matt Newville for IFEFFIT.
Kind regards, Ismael Graff.
> Hi everyone,
> Today I am announcing my first official release of my latest version
> of my XAS data processing and analysis software. The package is
> called Demeter, the version number is 0.9.9, and it includes new
> versions of Athena, Artemis, and Hephaestus. In many ways, these are
> much like the versions of the software that have been in use for
> almost a decade. In many ways, however, they offer important
> improvements, including better plotting, prettier GUIs, and lots of
> new analysis features.
> For those using Windows, you can download the installer package from
> For those using Linux, installation instructions can be found at
> I am hoping that installer packages for the Mac and for specific Linux
> distributions will become available in the coming months.
> The Demeter versions of the programs can coexist on a computer with
> the old versions. New Athena and old Athena peacefully coexist,
> indeed, they use the same project file format. The project file
> format for new Artemis is different, however new Artemis can import
> project files from old Artemis.
> I am no longer developing the old versions. I will no longer fix bugs
> or add new features to the old versions. All of my future develop
> efforts will be devoted to the new versions.

> It has been a joy to develop and support my software over the years.
> My interactions with the kind, engaged people in the community of
> Ifeffit users have been among the high points of my career. I hope
> that you enjoy my new software as much as I enjoyed writing it.
