We would like to announce the release of the next
version of Framsticks, v2.7. Framsticks is a versatile
simulator of artificial life forms, used for research
and education in many fields of science, including
evolutionary computation, artificial intelligence,
neural networks, robotics, biology, cognitive sciences,
and neuroscience. It uses advanced 3D visualization methods
and allows to export individual simulation frames in a few
graphics formats (POV-Ray, dxf, etc.)
Version 2.7 fixes a few problems, mainly in Windows GUI.
A new experiment definition is added, which generates
a log file with all the genetic operations performed
during evolution. It may be used to externally analyze
this process. In v2.7, neurons are described in more detail and
the neural network drawing can be configured in Body windows.
The free FramsView program has also been updated.
Framsticks Graphical User Interface for MS Windows can
be downloaded directly from
and the full list of downloads (including Linux versions)
