RSoft Component Design Suite 2015.06 Service Release 1 Now Available

The RSoft™ Component Design Suite 2015.06 Service Release 1 (2015.06-1), now available, provides a number of bug fixes and other improvements.

Issues Resolved in RSoft Component Design Suite 2015.06-1

This service release corrects several issues, including the following:

  • Corrects an error with the installer when using SCL 11.10.
  • Corrects an issue with FullWAVE™ performance optimizations that were introduced in 2015.06 that may not be optimal for all configurations when running on multiple nodes (should be no change within the same machine).
  • Introduces an optimization to BSDF calculation with DiffractMOD™ that speeds up the calculation by nearly 2x.
  • Introduces a new file format for RSoft BSDF data which, under certain conditions, allows results of several calculations to be merged.

Please refer to the RSoft Component Design Suite 2015.06-1 readme file, available on SolvNet, for more details about these and other updates included in the release.
