First, let us at Peltarion thank all of our customers for making 2008 a great year. The number of Synapse users nearly doubled and it is always great pleasure to see how people use the software to solve problems in a way we couldn't have imagined. We feel truly privileged to be able to help provide solutions across so many interesting domains. We hope that 2009 will be even better and promise to continue improving Synapse making sure it stays the best development environment for adaptive systems.
Now, for the updates: We've released Synapse 1.3.5. It's mostly a collection of under-the-hood changes that improve performance and usability:
- Improved GUI performance
- Multi-threading improvements
- Full 64-bit support
- Extended validation data set support
- New functions in the sensitivity analyzer and probe postprocessor.
- Algorithmic improvements in control systems and learning rules
- Faster data processing with SQL and CSV formats
A number of bug fixes are included as well.
If you have Synapse installed and automatic updates enabled, you'll get the latest version by just starting up Synapse. Customers can as always download the full installation package from the customer area. A 30-day evaluation version can be downloaded here.
We are already working on the next release which will include fully multi-threaded optimizers, new powerful adaptive systems blocks and new advanced learning algorithms.
Happy New Year! / The Peltarion Team
