Changeset 16030b1 in sasview

master, magnetic_scatt, release-4.2.2, ticket-1009, ticket-1094-headless, ticket-1242-2d-resolution, ticket-1243, ticket-1249, unittest-saveload

copy King's updates to README-next-release to README.txt

README.txt are the release notes. We should probably get rid of the
README-next-release. Once a release is made we can start adding notes
to README.txt for the next release I would think?

    99      some significant changes from previous versions. Further, as promised, it 
    1010      marks the end of support for 32 bit operating systems and is only 
    11       available for 64bit operating systems. With this version the change to the 
    12       new model API and plugins infrastructure begun with 4.0 is essentially 
    13       complete (though extensions are in the works and more are likely they 
    14       should remain backwardly compatible with previous versions of SasView). 
    15       NOTE: old style plugin models, including old sum|mul mocels will continue 
     11      available for 64 bit operating systems. 
     13      With this version the change to the new model API and plugins infrastructure  
     14      begun with 4.0 is essentially complete (though extensions are in the works  
     15      and more are likely they should remain backwardly compatible with previous  
     16      versions of SasView). 
     18      NOTE: Old-style plugin models, including old sum|multiply models will continue 
    1619      to be supported (i.e. SasView will be able to run them) in 4.x. However, 
    1720      the expectation is that such support will be removed in 5.0 and everyone 
    1821      is strongly encouraged to convert their custom models to the new API. 
    19       Finally, the new orientation angles and orientatinal distribution is now 
    20       also complete. 
     23      Finally, the changes to orientation angles and orientational distribution  
     24      definitions are now also complete. 
    2226      - Changes 
    2731           aligned objects has been completely overhauled. It now differs from 
    2832           previous versions. 
    29          - Plugin models, including sum/multiply models, have completely migrated 
     33         - Plugin models, including sum|multiply models, have completely migrated 
    3034           to the new infrastructure. NOTE that 3.x type models as well as early, 
    3135           intermediate 4.x type models, including those generated by sum|multiply 
    4145           understanding the new orientation framework. 
    4246         - Problems with the computation of magnetic scattering from some 
    43            objects have been rectified. Some questions however remain. 
     47           objects have been rectified. Some questions remain however. 
    4448         - The known issue with the core_shell_parallelepiped model is now fixed. 
    4549         - A number of issues and inconsistencies with the creation of 
    46            sum|product models have been rectified. 
     50           sum|multiply models have been rectified. 
    4751         - A Boltzmann distribution has been added for polydispersity/orientational 
    4852           distributions. 
    5357         - There have been numerous other bug fixes. 
    5458      - Documentation

     59           Several sections of the help documentation have undergone significant 
    5660           checking and updating, particularly those relating to orientation, 
    5761           magnetic scattering, and polydispersity distributions. Detailed 
    5862           advanced instructions for plugin writing and some scripting 
    5963           instructions have been added. 
     64           Two new tutorials have been added.
