Olex2 Versions

If you are new to the processing of crystal structures, we have the official release version of Olex2.

This version is the most stable of Olex2 and is regularly updated. If you want earlier access to new features, you can try out the Beta or even Alpha version.

Be careful, sometimes vicious bugs make their way into these versions, but get usually dealt with rather sooner than later!
