OpenSim Beta Testers -

We need your help testing the new release of OpenSim - version 4.0. Even
testing just one or two tasks is a big help to us. The new release is a
major upgrade. OpenSim 4.0 includes a new visualizer and support for Mac OS
X. For Matlab, Python, and C++ users, the API upgrades include new methods
to extract results from models/simulations and a new data interface that
makes it easier to get data in and out of OpenSim.

We created a google doc that lists a variety of testing tasks, including
the new features to try out. Please review the instructions, register,
choose some tasks by marking your name in the sheet, and report back on the
doc. You can also try out the new release with your own research workflow
and report any bugs on the "Bugs" sheet.

Beta Testing Tasks

You can find the beta of 4.0 on the OpenSim downloads page. Scroll down to
"OpenSim Release Betas". Grab the latest installers/distributions (121517),
for either 64-bit Windows or Mac OS X, depending on which platform is on
your machine.

Software Download links:

OS X:  download

Please don't hesitate to send any questions or feedback via email as well.
Thanks in advance for your help!

The OpenSim Team
