We are preparing a new major release, which will greatly expand on the current capabilites of the toolkit. A web-based demo of the new version will be made available by the end of April. Since the new version significantly differs from the version previously published here, we unfortunately have to discontinue support for the previous versions of Turbine. The program will still be available attached to the Supplementary Information of the introducing article for reproducibility of the published research.

Release 1.4 is out! The Windows versions are already available, the Mac and Linux files are coming later. Changes include a redesign of the viewer, a package manager for installing plugins, support for OS X, and many smaller improvements.

UPDATE: The Mac and Linux versions are delayed a bit, sorry for the inconvenience. In the meantime, I have added the MinGW libraries to the Windows installer, so it runs out of the box even on a fresh Windows install.

Site overhaul
