in any publications arising from the use of wien2wannier. For details see the file COPYING.


2.0.0 is included in the WIEN2k_16.1 distribution; to use it, simply install the latest Wien2k version. -specific documentation is included in SRC_w2w/.

This version introduces backward-incompatible changes in the format of case.inwplot. Several outdated options have been removed (see NEWS for a description of the changes, and SRC_templates/case.inwplot for an example), as has write_inwplot.

The new script checkinwplot converts old-style input files. x wplot calls this script automatically.

In spin-polarized cases, x w2w -up|-dn now expects separate input files case.inwfup and case.inwfdn.

For some other enhancements and bugfixes in this release, see the file NEWS included in the distribution.

For their valuable comments on past versions we thank
