Today we have released version 2.0 of ATLAS simulation. The main addition to this version is a graphical interface which can be launched with the "show graphics" button on the BOINC manager. The interface explains a bit more about why we do ATLAS@Home, some background information on basic particle physics, some examples of what simulation looks like and links to where you can find out more about the ATLAS experiment.

Please allow the task to run for up to a minute before launching the graphics as it requires some processes to start inside the virtual machine. The interface was created by Giulio Isacchini, a student at the University of Oslo in collaboration with the rest of the ATLAS@Home team. Please ask questions, give comments and suggestions for improvements, extra features etc on the Graphics forum. The graphics are currently only available on the single-core version, we will add it to multi-core soon.


EDIT:There is a small configuration issue stopping the pages loading on Mac hosts and possibly Windows hosts too. This problem will go away in the next 3-4 hours.
