1. Vensim 9 Release
—————————————————————————————————

Vensim 9 was launched last week at the System Dynamics conference.

Licenced users can download if they have active maintenance from
https://www.vensim.com/php-bin/download.html

Academic PLE users can download from
https://vensim.com/free-download/

We have completely re-written the user interface using the latest graphics engines available on both MacOS and Windows. This future-proofs Vensim and ensures it will remain the fastest and most advanced simulation package on the market today.

We have a set of videos that introduce the new interface and how to use it. These are available as a complete playlist, or you can view individual videos if you need to. All of them are available at the foot of our System Dynamics conference page at
https://www.ventanasystems.com/conference/

The new interface is similar in many ways to the old one so existing users should have no trouble migrating. And we hope it’s more intuitive than the old interface, so new users should find learning how to build models in Vensim a faster process.

And there is a lot more to come including new output tools, as well as integration with Forio to allow you to put your simulations online. Visit the site above and see how the new Vensim looks.

6. Applications
—————————————————————————————————
We regularly see impressive applications of Vensim and note them at Vensim.com or on social media. If you’ve developed something cool, drop us a note and we’d be happy to share your news! Here are two that you can run online:

C-ROADS
The latest version of the award-winning C-ROADS climate change policy simulator is powered by Vensim, using Todd Fincannon’s open SDEverywhere transpiler to run in a browser with an elegant interface and speed and interactivity rivaling Synthesim. Its companion En-ROADS is even more elegant.

Energy Policy Simulator
Energy Innovation has an Energy Policy Simulator that lets users explore what it takes to achieve energy and emissions targets, in detail. The simulator has a custom HTML5 interface that runs a Vensim model on servers using the Multicontext shared library. The interface was developed by Todd Fincannon. It has extensive documentation, and the Policy Design Guide explains many energy system policies in the internally consistent framework that a model provides. You can also download and run the open source model on your desktop.

7. In the Forum
—————————————————————————————————

The Vensim support forum at http://www.ventanasystems.co.uk/forum provides quick-turnaround help on a variety of Vensim questions. It now has over 2000 successfully answered queries, and also contains the archive of the SD mailing list.

A sample of recent topics:
Optimization Constraints using non-constants, percentages summing to 1.0?
Can I use LOOKUP SLOPE to access point to point slopes as rate data?
Optimization:  data import format?  
Sensitivity Graphs and confidence Intervals?  
Why are vdfx double the size than vdf files?  
Specify sheet for MENU>VDF2XLS?

8. System Dynamics Conference News
—————————————————————————————————

Ventana Systems thanks the SD Society for another great conference. We enjoyed meeting new and old friends and seeing new developments in the field. We were happy to see many papers providing runnable models, with many high-quality papers powered by Vensim..

We look forward to seeing you in Frankfurt next year!
