We are happy to announce the first beta release of Brian 2.0! This is the first version of Brian 2.0 we recommend for general use. From now on, we will try to keep changes that break existing code to a minimum. If you are a user new to Brian, we’d recommend to start with the Brian 2 beta instead of using the stable release of Brian 1.

What's new?

Several new features have been added: For a full list of changes, see the release notes. In addition, a large number of bugs have been fixed, we therefore recommend all users of Brian 2 to upgrade. How to get Brian 2: follow the installation instructions in the documentation Further information about Brian2: brian2.readthedocs.org This is still a Beta release, please report bugs or suggestions to the github bug tracker (https://github.com/brian-team/brian2/issues) or to the brian-development mailing list (brian-development@googlegroups.com).
