New ESTEEM Website

1 Februari 2009

This new website has been developed by Mark Freese currently working at EMAT. The website has undergone a major graphical upgrade and contains a few new features. From now on, you will need to register before downloading giving us the opportunity to track how many users and which labs are using our code. The program will remain under a GNU public license (link) as before. We are working on an improved tutorial to make life easier for first time users.
