New Match! version 3.15 (Build 247)

November 21, 2022

Today we have released the new version 3.15 (Build 247) of Match!, our software for phase analysis using powder diffraction data. The new version facilitates the handling of license files quite a lot and also provides improvements and bug fixes.

Here is the full list of improvements in the new version:

  • The installation and registration of your Match! license file is much easier by now, due to the new license manager program (that you can e.g. run in Match!'s "Help" menu ("Install new license..."), or by double-clicking "LicenseManager" in Match!'s program directory).
  • Match! can now import Rigaku RASX as well as Thermo Fisher XML diffraction data files.
  • New edition of the COD reference database dated November 7, 2022
  • Several bugs have been fixed:
    • A bug has been fixed that caused a wrong background when re-calculating the profile from experimental peaks, after shifting or deleting one of the background control points.
    • Due to a bug, adding individual entries to the current reference database manually (using 'Database / Add entry to reference database') corrupted the reference database, so that e.g. entries could no longer be selected as 'matching'.
      Please note that you have to re-create the corresponding reference database(s) in order to finally resolve this issue!
    • Several bugs affecting the element selection logic in the periodic table on the "Restraints" tab have been resolved.
    • When importing crystal structure data from a CIF-file into a manual entry, a bug caused the radiation to change from X-ray to neutron in certain circumstances.
    • Some minor bugs have also been fixed.

Match! version 3 users should check their update permission time (e.g. in "Help / About Match!") and then download and install the new version 3.15 Build 247 from here.
