Dear colleagues,

We're happy to announce the stable release of RELION-2.0. As mentioned 
before, RELION-2.0 includes GPU-acceleration (Kimanius, Forsberg et al, 
eLife, accepted); helical reconstruction (He & Scheres, JSB, submitted); 
and a new GUI with a pipeline (Fernandez-Leiro & Scheres, Acta Cryst D, 
accepted). Bjoern Forsberg and Dari Kimanius from Erik Lindahl's group 
at Stockholm University implemented most of the GPU acceleration, while 
Shaoda He at LMB implemented most of the helical processing.

During beta-testing the community provided valuable feedback that has 
improved stability and usability. We are grateful to all who have 
provided such feedback. To encourage this, NVIDIA had kindly sent us a 
Titan-X GPU card to award to the person/group who provided the most 
applicable/workable feedback during beta-testing. We're excited to award 
this card to Dmitry Tegunov (CC; from the Cramer lab in Goettingen).

We have moved the stable code from bitbucket to 
https://github.com/3dem/relion. For those of you who participated in 
beta-testing, please download and re-install the latest version from 
there, as the bitbucket repository is no longer available. Detailed 
instructions on installation and how to use the new parts of the 
software have been added to the RELION Wiki. Please use the github site 
to continue to report issues/bugs, and the ccpem email list for asking 

Have fun,
Bjoern, Dari, Erik, Shaoda & Sjors
