Release of version 1.0.1 of Tonatiuh

We just released version 1.0.1 of Tonatiuh. This minor release:

  • Fixes some programming bugs that, when running Tonatiuh under the MAC OS X, resulted in the user not being able to maximize the program's main window, or in some plug-ins not being loaded.
  • Improves the implementation of the ShapeFlatDisk so that now when using this shape as the starting surface from which to cast solar photons into the solar concentrating systems, the origin of the photons are much more uniformly distributed upon the flat disk surface that under the previous implementation of the plug-in.
  • Includes two new shape plug-ins (ShapeSphericalRectangle, and ShapeBezierSurfaces).
  • Includes one new sunshape plug-in (SunshapeBuie).
In future posts, the functionality added by these new plug-ins will be presented, and the use of the plug-ing explained.

As always, if you find bugs in Tonatiuh or in any of its plug-ins, please, take the time to report those errors using the "Issues" tab in Tonatiuh's website at Googlecode.

Best regards. Enjoy!
