RE: Using old versions of FLUKA

Dear all,

I'm not sure if my problem is related to this, but after installing the
latest release of Fluka/flair I'm having some problems plotting 2D-usrbin
plots in flair.

I have no problem plotting 1D-plots with the merged data, but when
requesting 2D-plots I get the standard message about using an obsolete
version of Fluka.

Does anyone have a suggestion to what might cause this error?

Best regards,
Kristian Ytre-Hauge

Dear Sebastian

I do not understand your problem. Fluka is not changing since the 2011
release, respin are just bug fixes with no other change whatsoever, and
2011.2b was just adding a functionality (dicom vs voxel processing) which
did not impact anything else

So what is your problem? Using nsew respins is simply assuring you'll not
meet an already known bug, otherwise results are unchanged.
