    P.S.: Some users have experienced download problems with the Internet Explorer (specifically with the japanese version of IE8). If you run into this problem please try another browser (firefox 3.0, Chrome, etc etc).

  • Bugfix: in linear_response_NMR.F

    Unfortunately a bug was introduced in linear_response_NMR.F of VASP.5.3.3.18Dec2012:

    This bug affects the para- and diamagnetic PAW one-center contributions of the chemical shifts.

  • Bugfix: several further fixes

    Regrettably, we have to draw your attention to the fact that several additional bugs in VASP.5.3.3.18Dec2012 were fixed.

    The source of VASP.5.3.3 in the download section of the portal and on the ftp-server has been updated.

  • Bugfix: in dos.F (VASP.5.3.3.18Dec2012)

    Unfortunately a nasty bug crept into dos.F of VASP.5.3.3.18Dec2012:

    In some cases this bug affects the computation of the Fermi-level, and is to be considered severe.

  • NEW RELEASE: PAW datasets!

    After long and careful consideration we have decided to release a new set of POTCAR files covering the periodic table. This includes GW potentials for almost all elements.

    You will find the new potentials on the download-portal and on the VASP.5.X user account of the ftp server.

  • Bugfix: accumulated fixes for vasp.5.2.12

    An updated version of VASP.5.2.12 (dated 11Nov2011) is available from the download portal and ftp server.

  • NEW RELEASE: VASP.5.2.12

    A new release of VASP, version 5.2.12.26May2011, is available for download now!

  • Bugfix: use of empty spheres, et al.

    The use of empty spheres was broken, is fixed now.

  • Bugfix: VASP.5.2.11 on IBM

    Compiling with the xlf compiler (version 12.1.0.9) and running on an IBM SP6 revealed several bugs (unbelievable what the ifort compiler is able to swallow and still produce running code).

    N.B.: We recommend this update to all users, not only those using the xlf compiler.

  • Bugfix: in vdwforcefield.F

    2010-12-17

    Bugfix to vdwforcefield.F:
      ) C6 and R0 parameters can be defined per type of atoms in the POSCAR file. Previously they could be defined only per element.

     

  • Bugfix: in VASP.5.2.11

    2010-12-09

    Bugfix to mlwf.F:
      ) Projections were calculated incorrectly in the noncollinear case.

     

    2010-12-10

    Bugfix to vdwforcefield.F:
      ) A workaround so that Grimme's method works for Xe POTCAR files wrongly labelled "X".

     

    Corrected mistakes in makefile.ibm_hlrn and makefile.ibm_hlrn-serial

     

  • Bugfix: in VASP.5.2.11

    Unfortunately every new release immediately triggers a few bugfixes:

    2010-12-01

    Bugfix to nmr.F:
      ) One call to SETDIJ_AVEC_ should have been to SETDIJ_AVEC_ONE_CENTER

     

    Bugfix to us.F:
       ) An END SUBROUTINE SETDIJ_AVEC_ should have been END SUBROUTINE SETDIJ_AVEC_ONE_CENTER

     

    Bugfix to david_inner.F:
      ) Could not be compiled without scaLAPACK. Can be now, but will not work correctly [still heavily under development anyway].

     

    We are very sorry for the inconvience.
