  • You can now select which columns shall be displayed in the match list on the "Match list" tab of the "Options" dialog.

  • A new release 2022.06.29 of the COD reference database has become available.

    • The calculation of the intensity scale factors using profile data did not work if no experimental peak data were present, also affecting semi-quantitative analysis using RIR-method.
    • Due to a bug, the manual adjustment of the phase amounts by using the mouse wheel over the "Amounts" column in the match list did not work properly.
    • Alpha2-stripping did not work for match list entries if only raw but no exp. peak data were present.
    • The sorting of the match list did not work properly.
    • When importing crystal structure data from CIF-files, the selected maximum 2theta-value for the diffraction pattern calculation was not applied.
    • Some minor bugs have been fixed as well.
