    1313   * 11-May-2009 [[br]] New subversion of [https://cp3.irmp.ucl.ac.be/projects/madgraph/wiki/MadWeight MadWeight] (now in subversion 2.2) See [http://madgraph.phys.ucl.ac.be/Downloads/MW_UpdateNote.txt  MadWeight Update Notes] for more information.

    15    * 21-Dec-2008 [[br]]A bug has been recently discovered that might have affected xsec calculation and event generation starting from the second run in a given process directory if particular cuts (pt,...) have been lowered in run_card.dat after a first integration, or if the PDF/collider params have been changed. In many cases, ME forced the grid reset, but not systematically.[[br]]

    3737   * 08-Dec-2007 [[br]] A bug was discovered and fixed which affected the downloaded MG/ME package version 4.1.45-46 (on the UCL cluster 22 Nov - 8 Dec).

    5252
    5353   * 01-Mar-2007 [[br]] New functionalities added to the results web page. The full generation chain can be performed one step at the time. [[br]]
     
    5959   * 9-Feb-2007 [[br]]  New standalone version of MadGraph available. This is the current official version of the original program which is mostly meant for "theorists". Given a model and a (multi-)process, MadGraph Standalone creates the corresponding code for the matrix element squared. The resulting file is easily exportable to other codes, since the dependencies are kept to a minimum. The only libraries needed are for HELAS (libdhelas3.a) and for the MODEL (libmodel.a). These are automatically built and available in the libraries directory (lib). Parameters of the model are passed in a standardized format (LesHouchesII-like) through the param_card.dat. A sample program, check , that generates random points in phase space and returns the corresponding value of the matrix element is provided. Detailed instructions can be found in the README file.

    6060
    61    * 19-Dec-2006: [[br]]
    62       Improved structure of the simulation chain (MadGraph -> Pythia -> PGS):[[br]]    Events are available as:  parton-level (Les Houches event file format), hadron-level, after showering and hadronization done in Pythia (stdhep), reconstructed objects after detector simulation (PGS4), with the new LHC Olympics format. Events at the three levels are also available as root files. Events can be traced from one stage to the other, since numbering is kept consistent along the simulation chain. A series of standard plots is provided at each step. [[br]]
