individual patch files for bugs

#1 Post by jianli_shao1 » Thu Oct 12, 2023 1:29 am

I'm not sure if posting this in this section is appropriate, but due to time constraints, I am unable to use the latest 6.4.2 version. However, there are some bugs in the 6.4.1 version. Is it possible to release separate patch files for these bugs, so that I can use a 6.4.1 version without any known issues.
Thank you.

Unfortunately your license expired so you cannot access any new releases after its end date. Of course you can continue to use all versions of VASP released before your license expiry date. Please review the release notes to judge whether the fixes in 6.4.2 are important to your work and consider updating your license if they are. Updating may also be a good idea to get access to the improved PAW potentials in particular if you work with lanthanides.
