With the inclusion of the phonon-module and some minor fixes and extensions to existing code, the hive 3.x program now counts over 40.000 lines, spread over 60 files. 8% of all lines are blank lines, 71% of all lines contain code, and 21% contain comments, an indication of the extent of the documentation of the code.
The code now provides access to 33 command line options of varying complexity. The simplest options (extracting a geometry, or creating a cif-file) are nearly instantaneous, while more complex options (such as Hirshfeld-I calculations) can take up to several hours.
Also from this point onward, HIVE will require to be linked with a lapack-library during compilation, to allow for the efficient solution of eigenvalue-problems.
Time for a little celebration.
