New Endeavour version 1.8; new release 2018/19 of Pearson's Crystal Data

We have just released a new version 1.8 of "Endeavour", our software for crystal structure solution from powder diffraction data. The new version contains several improvements, the most important of which are:
  • Crystal structures containing molecules/rigid bodies can now be solved directly in a space group other than P1, even if their atoms must be placed on special positions.
  • The design of the user interface has been polished.
  • The structure solution progress graphics now appears in a docking window, displaying graphs for multiple seed values and/or documents at a time.
  • Display of overall cost function in addition to R-factor in progress graphics.
  • A new HTML-based online help system replaces the outdated "Windows Help" system that is no longer supported under Windows Vista through 10.
  • In addition, a variety of bugs has been fixed.
