Dear ADDA users,


ADDA contributors are working hard to bring ADDA out of stagnation, and we expect a new release (v1.4) by the end of this year. Meanwhile, we are finishing migration of ADDA to GitHub, and it brings several changes:

- We have moved the wiki pages to its designated position at https://github.com/adda-team/adda/wiki. The previously used branch "wiki" will soon be removed to avoid confusion. If you used or saved the links to wiki pages at this branch, having ".../adda/blob/wiki/<WikiName>.md" in their address, update the latter to ".../adda/wiki/<WikiName>".

- All downloads and release notes are now in one place at https://github.com/adda-team/adda/releases. In particular, there is a permanent link to the latest release https://github.com/addateam/adda/releases/latest .

- The version 1.3b4 (released in 2014) has been retroactively designated as a stable one, since it stood the test of time. It has solid release notes https://github.com/adda-team/adda/releases/tag/v1.3b4 and up-to-date description of features https://github.com/adda-team/adda/wiki/Features.

- We have made available version 1.4.0-alpha of the manual at https://github.com/adda-team/adda/tree/master/doc (both .docx and .pdf). The main difference from 1.3b4 is updated links to wiki pages, issues, etc.  But please do not refer to it (e.g., in publications), since it does not have a permanent address (until the release is ready).


If you have any questions, do not hesitate to send them to adda-discuss@googlegroups.com


Best regards, Maxim Yurkin.
