Version: March 30, 2013 Release_Notes
X-ray Detector Software for processing single-crystal monochromatic diffraction data recorded by the rotation method. For a description of the package, including references, visit xds_doc. Additional information can be found in XDSwiki.
XDS can process data images from CCD-, imaging-plate-, multiwire-, and pixel-detectors in a variety of formats as well as from multi-segment detectors assembled from several rectangular components in arbitrary arrangement (see Supported detectors). Detector specific Input file templates greatly simplify the use of XDS; they are provided as part of the documentation.
XDS runs under Unix or Linux on a single server or automatically splits its task for concurrent execution by several remote hosts in a networked (NFS) environment where each host may comprise a shared memory multiprocessor system.
XDS is free of charge for non-commercial applications and available here for downloading. Note, that the executables of the package will expire on December 31, 2013. For industrial usage of XDS a license is required (e-mail enquiry : Wolfgang.Kabsch@mpimf-heidelberg.mpg.de).
XDS-Viewer is an open source program for looking at rotation data images and
control images generated during data processing by XDS
