Ngene 1.2 now available

Postby Andrew Collins » Fri Feb 02, 2018 1:43 pm

We are pleased to announce that Ngene 1.2 is now available.

There are several new features in this version:
  • Ability to load in user defined candidate sets when using the Modified Federov algorithm (§8.6).
  • Support for partial profile designs (see section 8.10 of the updated manual) and partial choice set/availability designs (§8.11).
  • Soft attribute level balance constraints make (near) level balance easier to implement with the Modified Federov algorithm (§8.1).
There are many bug fixes and improvements, including:
  • Numerous performance and stability improvements to the Modified Federov algorithm.
  • Additional syntax checks and improved syntax parsing error messages.
  • Additions to the manual and the demonstration project, documenting and demonstrating the new features.
  • Corrections to manual.
  • Fixed error if activating an installation that previously had a time-expiring activation.
The software has had a visual refresh:
  • Support for high resolution (high-DPI) monitors (4K etc) – Ngene will look sharp on these displays.
  • Assorted graphical user interface updates (especially with experiment formatting).
  • New icons.
  • “Check for Updates” in the Help menu provides an option to download and install latest version from within Ngene.
And there are some changes under the bonnet too:
  • New and updated software libraries for performance and compatibility improvements.
  • Now targets .NET 4.0.
  • Error log file (error.log) now only written to installation directory.
Ngene 1.2 can be downloaded from our updated website at The upgrade is free for existing users. When you run the installer, it will install over the old copy, and maintain any existing license activation. You can check for future updates by selecting “Check for Updates” from the Help menu. When these updates are available, they can be downloaded from within Ngene itself.

If you have any feedback on this version, you can provide here, or by email at Also use this email address if you have any technical problems completing the upgrade.

We hope you enjoy using this version.
