The KIM development team is pleased to announce the release of version 1.9.0 of the KIM application programming interface (API). By conforming to this API, an atomistic simulation code will seamlessly work with any KIM-compliant interatomic model written in any supported language. This release includes dramatic simplifications to the build sysem including a new
collections-management user utility to help install and manage models and model drivers.
Version 1.9.0 has the following main features:
Added collections-management user utility to manage build and install of OpenKIM Models and Model Drivers.
Added support for "Simulator Models". (More information on this will be released in the future.)
Incorporate fix to configure script contributed by Christoph Junghans
