Release Notes on openEMS v0.0.28

Post by thorsten » Wed 13 Jun 2012, 12:26

It has been more than 3 month and now it is finally here: a new openEMS version 0.0.28!

Most noticeable changes:
  • Lots of updates to the drude type material model: e.g. support for multiple plasma frequencies and losses
  • New conducting sheet model. Have a look at an example in "Matlab/examples/microstrip/MSL_Losses.m"
  • Use of matlab private folder for openEMS internal functions (make sure to install into a clean directory!)
  • The graphical structural viewer AppCSXCAD has been enhanced to better support cylindrical meshes (in 3D mode only)
  • A lot of bug fixes and internal enhancements...
As usual, checkout the installation guide:

Furthermore the source-code of openEMS is now also available on github.
Please checkout:
Warning: On github I will push up the most recent (possibly unstable) development versions of openEMS etc.
If you want the more stable version, use the git repositories hosted on

Please register to this forum and give some feedback, e.g. on how you are using openEMS.

best regards
