There is a lot of improved functionality in GEM-Selektor v.3.3 compared
with v.3.2. For backward compatibility, all modelling projects created
in GEM-Selektor v.3.2.x or earlier, will open and work normally in
GEM-Selektor v.3.3.x; accordingly, GEMS3K I/O files exported from
GEM-Selektor v.3.2.x are readable and will work in coupled codes and
examples using GEMS3K v.3.3.x.
Immediate extension of old modeling
projects in GEM-Selektor v.3.3.x with newly created Phase records,
remaking existing Phase records, or via Project remake/extension wizard
is possible. Before doing that, the user needs only once to open the
project; switch to Database Mode; open the Phase window; and remake
one-by-one all Phase records available in the project (saving each
record back after remake).
Note that if some Phase records remain in
the "old" format (i.e. not remade) then this will lead to errors or
crashes during calculations of equilibria in systems from this project.
So, it is essential that ALL Phase records go once through the Phase
remake wizard! Even opening and closing a modeling project once in the
GEM-Selektor v.3.3.x will render this project unusable in earlier
versions of GEM-Selektor (3.2.x or less).
For these reasons, if you
have used GEM-Selektor v.3.2.x or earlier, we recommend not to upgrade
it, but to install GEM-Selektor v.3.3.x to a new location in your PC,
check it, and then copy your old modelling projects into the work
project directory of the new version (usually like

If, in Windows or
you have a previously installed GEM-Selektor package older than rev.
2370.830, then we recommend installing the current package to a
location and copy your modeling projects over. There are two
reasons: (i) some files in /Resources/DB.default have been renamed in
preparation of an updated PSI-Nagra thermodynamic database; (ii) the
Project record format has been extended, so a newly created or expanded
project will not be readable by earlier revisions of
GEM-Selektor. In Mac OS X, first back up your project directory
(/users/<home>/Library/Gems3/projects); then move Gems3.app
from /Applications to trash, and put a new one from dmg to
