That's weird about the coincidences issue. Are you sure you typed the command correctly? It should be


(notice the "s")

I'm using v6.2 with the coincidences command and it's working fine.

As for the ascii output, I answered this question somewhere on the mailing list, but the subject of the message was not very descriptive (so it's probably hard to find). Here's how to add the ascii output back:

In the GateConfiguration.h.in file found within the home folder of Gate, change this line:

#cmakedefine GATE_USE_FILE        @GATE_USE_FILE@

to this:


Recompile Gate and it should now work.

As for the changes between each version, you can refer to the Release Notes included with each Gate distribution. However, this will not tell you about the bugs that people find in the current release!

I know the Gate group has thought of ways to improve the development and bug reporting of Gate, so hopefully we'll see a more robust system someday.
