Minsky 1.0 now available

We finally have a version of Minsky that I'm happy to regard as a 1.0 release. It will be permanently available on our SourceForge page, and the only changes that will be made to it will be bug-fixes and, when I get the time, a complete help file.

The main issue that this latest release addressed was the speed of plotting. We were using a Tcl/Tk layer for rendering plots, and it was impossibly slow. Russell has bypassed this with his own code and the speed of updating plots is now extremely high--so high that it's advisable to set the simulation speed to well below maximum unless you  have an extremely complicated model (and we now save the selected simulation speed as part of the model schema).

You can download this release from SourceForge:

I'll also try to get a "push" mailing system going for regular updates from now on.

Thanks again for your financial support, without whch we wouldn't have been able to get to this point.
