Dear all,
we are in the process of testing a new sixtrack version, i.e. 5.00.00. This is a true upgrade of the code, which has been re-factored deeply - including dynamic memory allocation. Moreover, it provides fixes to the physics already implemented, e.g. solenoidal fields and online aperture checking, and brand new implementations, e.g. electron lenses and ion tracking. We are finalising the implementations, hence the version running as sixtracktest is a quick test of the main functionalities and code re-factoring.
More to come in the next days / weeks.
Thanks a lot for your precious help!
Keep up the good work, and happy crunching!
Alessio, for the SixTrack team

I got yesterday about 200 of those on one host. They took about 2-3 minutes each, so they have all finished already. Here: https://lhcathome.cern.ch/lhcathome/results.php?hostid=10509390&offset=0&show_names=0&state=0&appid=10

Nice!

A quetion just for information:
Will there be an application for Linux on ARMv7 32 bit (e.g. Banana Pi)? I only see an Android version for ARM64-v8a and a Linux one for 64 bit ARM.

I tried to compile the -dev branch (from github) a couple of days ago on my Banana Pi, but it could not compile the roundctl. Unfortunately I dont have the time to look into the code or investigate the problem if it is on my side.
Is there a way to cross-compile?

It should work - I will set up my pi again and build it in the next few days.
