AnyLogic 6.8 is released


Our enhanced Pedestrian Library will now have agents seeking alternate routes based on congestion on the most direct pedestrian path. Version 6.8 also adds Subversion revision and version control features to enable collaboration among developer teams. You may now upload source models, and applets containing 3D animation to RunTheModel.com. And our new runtime toolbar control makes it easy to tailor specific runtimes and stops/starts/pauses. And we've added a half dozen new example models including a great new version of the classic beer distribution game! Read full list of new features...
