New developments and releases

8th Mar 2022 New release versions of applgrid,
Fixes an issue with the hoppet initiualisation for some grids with very
large internal scales
24th Apr 2021 New release versions of applgrid and appl-conv standalone convolution code ...
Simplifies configuration of applgrid without root ...
- adds a configure option --without-root
to disable root support

21st Mar 2021 New release versions of applgrid and appl-conv standalone convolution code ...
Adds a new applgrid native indexed file format to replace the root storage
- allows applgrid to be compiled and used completely free from root
- adds a new applgrid-convert utility to convert bewteen the root and new native appl
- builds with root by default if root is installed, in which case can read
and write root or native appl formats interchangeably, compiles without root if
root is not found
16th May 2019 New release versions of applgrid and apl-conv standalone convolution code ...
New version of applgrid capable of running NNLO grids with full NNLO factorisation and
renormalisation scale variation
17th Feb 2015 New release versions of applgrid and the mcfm interface ...
mcfm-bridge 0.0.28
mcfm-patch 0.0.8
Adds minor new internal features and fixes for some newer processes
12th May 2014 Fix fresh compilation failure in mcfm-bridge, new tag ...
mcfm-bridge 0.0.28
11th May 2014 New versions of mcfm bridge code, and applgrid code with enhanced features for combining bins, and reducing the number of
sub processes.
mcfm-bridge 0.0.27
New atlas inclusive dijet (2011) grids released including nonperturbativer and Electroweak corrections. NB: require applgrid-1.4.56
or higher.
16th Apr 2014 New applgrid intermediate version of applgrid released 1.4.50 released
