Toutatis last news:

05-08-2022: Toutatis 2.0 is back for download with macOS versions as bonus

04-08-2022: Toutatis 2.0 is not available for download for maintenance purposes. It should be back within a week. 

28-07-2022: Toutatis 2.0 is available for download. Many new features with the GUI version that uses now pyqtgraph. 64 bit console version are also available. Toutatis 2.0 has been compiled for Windows and Linux machine only. MacOS version are being cooked. 

16-02-2022: bug has been fixed when exporting ascii files in scatter plot windows

16-02-2022:  DW_LIMIT x  is now used for arbitrary defining longitudinal losses (energy spread acceptance).  x  is expressed MeV. For filtering particles for the emittances and halo parameters estimates. the DW_FILTER  is used instead. DW_FILTER  is equal to 1MeV by default while DW_LIMIT is equal to 1E12 MeV by default is then very permissive

18-01-2022:  The flag TheAcceleratedFlag is obsolete and will be ignored by Toutatis. It is replaced by the command DW_LIMIT x that defines the energy window for filtering particles for the emittances, halo parameters estimates. x is set by the user and is in MeV. It is equal to 0.02 MeV by default. This filter is also used for selecting particles in .dst file at exit. 

04-01-2022:  Reference particle is now estimated based on the channel data in .inp file. Discrepancies between this particle and the beam center may result from discrepancies between Toutatis fields and field assumptions used for setting the .inp file  or for example voltage changes (phase shift to get the same beta evolution).
