iDynoMiCS download page

iDynoMiCS is open-source and freely available under a GNU GPL type license called CeCILL. More information on this software licence can be found from the link in the box to the right. There are two ways to obtain iDynoMiCS:

1. The latest stable release

iDynoMiCS remains in constant development. Nevertheless, every so often we release a new stable version of the software. If you are purely interested in running iDynoMiCS rather than contributing to its ongoing development, we recommend you download this version.

Details on the latest stable release version and the download link can be found here.

From the summer of 2013, versions of iDynoMiCS will be able to detect whether a newer version of the simulation has been released. Should this be the case, you will be informed of this when the simulation is launched, and the tool will give you the opportunity of automatically upgrading to the latest version.

2. GitHub: The 'bleeding edge' development of iDynoMiCS

The GitHub repository houses the most up to date version of the iDynoMiCS codebase, with new features or bug fixes added by the development team and collaborators. This version is available to download, but cannot be classified as a stable release. If you are comfortable with using this developmental version, you can download the repository straight from our GitHub repository.

If you would like to contribute to the future development of iDynoMiCS, we recommend obtaining the code from GitHub via Forking our repository. This gives you your own copy of the repository which you are able to modify as you please. Should you wish, you can then submit your changes to the developers via a 'Pull Request', which allows the developers to examine the changes you have made and, if suitable, commit these to the main iDynoMiCS repository. Detailed instructions on how to do this can be found on the iDynoMiCS wiki within the GitHub repository.

iDynoMiCS Tutorial and Help

The iDynoMiCS tutorial has now been relocated to the iDynoMiCS wiki within the GitHub repository. Should you prefer a PDF copy, you will find a PDF Tutorial within the codebase (both in the stable release and that downloaded from GitHub).

Instructions on how to report software errors (bugs) or suggest improvements can also be found on the iDynoMiCS wiki.
