We're starting to work on the new Tkx version!

Hooray! In case you don't know why you should be excited about this, I'll give you a couple of reasons. First, it's going to make it so that it works with the default install of ActivePerl on Windows, which means no more downloading Tk to get it to run as a script. Second, it will take us much, much closer to having a Mac-friendly version, which I'm told a few people want. Finally, it looks a lot less like something you'd expect to see scratched on a wall at Lascaux. Just take a look:

Okay, so it's not Rembrandt, but it at least looks like something that was written in the last twenty years.

I'm hoping to have an alpha version of it up on the web site in a few days. The tabs are gone, replaced by a more normal-looking menu system. I'm also slowly but surely going to start adding more flexibility in how Maxent runs are conducted, with the ultimate goal being that the user can set any Maxent option from within ENMTools and apply that to all runs automatically. That's a bit of a ways away, though.
