NICOS 3.2 has been released
NICOS 3.2 is now available for download.
Changes in this release series:
The “center()” and “checkoffset()” commands can now use any defined fitting function, or “center_of_mass”, to determine the peak center.
Fitting commands output the relative error as a column.
The collector service can now forward cache values to multiple different backends (NICOS cache/webhooks).
Tango VectorInput/VectorOutput are now supported.
Added a device to read out the absolute Q value for TAS instruments.
The generic detector can now calculate post-processed values from scalar-valued PassiveChannels.
Added an image sink for writing multiple arrays from a single detector.
Each setup can now name a “representative” device to show in the device tree when the setup is collapsed.
The history panel can now save multiple displayed curves in one data file.
The selection of a fit function, and whether to pick initial fit points, has been reworked in the scans and history panels.
All available fit functions can be used in the scans and history panels.
Fitting by default uses the currently viewed range to limit the fit range.
Custom function presets can be added to the “Fit arbitrary function” dialog in the GUI config.
Instrument configurations can now include custom dialogs to show on NewExperiment and FinishExperiment (if triggered through the proposal window).
Some minor visual enhancements in the plot displays.
- The “nicos-demo” command now always starts with the demo instrument. To use an instrument selected by nicos.conf or the INSTRUMENT environment variable, pass the “-O” option.
