Revisions of QuickWave 2017
Software for electromagnetic design and simulations based on conformal FDTD method.
What's new in Patch1 for Revision1 for QuickWave 2017 (released 2017.11.17)

QW-Simulator:
1.
'-i' command line option will run minimised QW-Simulator application.
2.
Dimensions of half cells in Z-direction are saved to *.vi3 *.ve3, *.fm3 files under "FDTD Mesh" export option.
3.
Advanced -g command line option controls the graphic card used by the QW-GPU Simulator. The card preference number (number of the card in Preference queue specified in Preferences/GPU window) is defined as parameter after space, e.g. "-g 2". This option requires Preference queue in Preferences/GPU window to be explicitly defined.
4.
Fixed crash after hiding scales values (Shift+U) in isotropic mode of 2D/3D Fields Distribution/Monitor window when Remote Desktop Connection is used.
5.
Fixed stopping the simulation on QW-GPU Simulator after memory allocation error for Volume Envelope calculations (from Patch 1 those computations will be redirected to CPU instead of stopping the simulation).
6.
Energy component in 1D Fields window is displayed for the whole circuit in QW-MultiGPU Simulator.
7.
Domain range in X,Y,Z - direction for subcircuits in the View Info window of 2D/3D Fields Distribution/Monitor window in QW-MultiGPU Simulator is displayed correctly.
QW-Editor:
1.
'-i' command line option will run minimised QW-Editor application.
2.
Effective permittivity is now assigned for PlaneTEM excitation type.
QW-AddIn:
1.
QuickWave AddIn v2017 x64 rev.2 has been released (compile number: 1.5.10.0 - 2017.11.09).
2.
Fixed rare optimization stopping bug.
What's new in Revision1 for QuickWave 2017 (released 2017.09.13)

QW-Simulator:
1.
Improvements in S-parameters extraction algorithm for TEM lines have been introduced to assure higher accuracy results near DC range.
2.
New quantities, E Max and E Rms, are now available for 3D Field Monitors. The results are available for viewing and saving from window and also appropriate tasker commands have been enabled.
3.
2D Field Monitor (recommended only for V2D projects) calculation algorithm has been enhanced with parallel computation for multiple frequencies. Faster computation is additionally achieved by enabling exclusion of selected field components (upon user request made in one of QuickWave input interfaces) from calculation.
QW-AddIn:
1.
QuickWave AddIn v2017 x64 has been released (compile number: 1.5.8.0 - 2017.09.11).
2.
Basic Heating Module settings have been enhanced with the following options: variable heating time, automatic saving of selected computation components (e.g. enthalpy, effective media parameters, etc.), suspending and freezing options for consecutive BHM steps.
3.
A new movement option has been enabled for Basic Heating Module projects. The user is now allowed to enable load translation along his declared trajectory in XY plane.
4.
Energy Stop Criterion option for activating automatic simulation suspension has been enabled.
5.
Import and export of media definition, in a format compatible with other input interfaces of QuickWave software has been enabled.
QW-OptimiserPlus:
1.
Optimisation and Grid Search problems caused by multiple dots present in *.xyp file name have been eliminated.
