Two new articles are online

Our new research articles (Influence of spatial structure on protein damage susceptibility – A bioinformatics approach) and (Tracking tendon fibers to their insertion – a 3D analysis of the Achilles tendon enthesis in mice) are online as preprint (bioRxiv).

Software rebuild (cloud2, master, imagexd, enzyme2, vcfdumper)

Bug fixes and new features added (28.02.2020).
Many thanks to Julian Sartori for his help!

Software

Main changes: For all, please look into the macros!
@imagexd: New image adjusts tools (image.setadjust…).
@imagexd: A new streamline condition (vector.stream.stop.contrast).
@imagexd: Diffusion calculation – 3 times faster.
@imagexd: More statistics for scalar.
@cloud2: Lines materials are now saved.
@cloud2: More tools to store additional parameters of lines (in t – angle, tortuosity, curvature or torsion).

Bugs:
@cloud2: Fixing the derivation calculation (affects curvature and torsion).
@All: PNG can now also save large images
