openModeller 1.0 is available

This release contains only a few adjustments and minor feature enhancements, but it consolidates all work that was done during the last 4 years as part of a thematic project funded by Fapesp. Some people are still working on additional features that will hopefully be incorporated in future releases, such as a new version of the maximum entropy algorithm (Maxent), a new algorithm called Niche Mosaic and paralellized versions of GARP.

Version 1.0 includes adjustments in algorithms (ANN and SVM), command line tools (om_model and om_niche) and ROC curve procedures. It also contains improvements in the modelling protocol, and model statistics (possibility to use lowest presence threshold).

More details about this release can be seen here.
