We are pleased to announce the release of Kwant 1.4, the result of a year and a half of development.
.. TEASER_END
Highlights of the new release:
* Adding magnetic field to systems, even in complicated cases, is now specially supported.
* The KPM module can now calculate conductivities.
* The `Qsymm library <https://gitlab.kwant-project.org/qt/qsymm>`_ for Hamiltonian symmetry analysis has been integrated.
* The handling of system parameters has been improved and optimized.
* Plotting has been improved, most notably through the addition of a routine that plots densities with interpolation.
* Installing Kwant on Windows is now much easier thanks to Conda packages.
All these and other improvements that are detailed in the `what's new in Kwant 1.4 </doc/1/pre/whatsnew/1.4>`_ document. The new version is practically 100% backwards-compatible with scripts written for previous versions of Kwant 1.x.

* Anton Akhmerov
* Paul Clisson
* Christoph Groth
* Thomas Kloss
