2.9.x (helicity-recycling) release from the 2.0 series released 2021-01-30

Release information
Release notes:

Large focus on the speed of the LO code
- faster method to evaluate the matrix-element (thanks to a new optimization layer)
- faster integration method for VBF processes

Changelog:

      Kiran+OM: Optimization of the matrix-element at run-time using recycling helicity method
                - This fasten LO computation by a factor around 2
                - This can be turned off via the command "output PATH --hel_recycling=False"
      OM: Various optimization fot T-channel integration
          - use different ordering for T-channel. Four different ordering have been implemented
            at generation time, the code decides which ordering to use channel-per-channel.
            This can be turned off via the command "output PATH --t_strategy=2"
          - increase number of maximum iteration for double or more T-channel
          - implement an alternative to the standard multi-channel.
             instead of using the amplitude square it use the product of the denominator
             (the default strategy use depends of the process)
          - speed-up for VBF type of process are often around 100 times faster
          - This fixes a lot of issue for processes failing to generate the targetted number of events.
      OM: Better version of the color-computation (but this leads to only modest gain but for very complex processes.\
)
          This optimizations leads to a longer generation time of the code (only for complex processes).
          This can be turned off via "output PATH --jamp_optim=False"
      OM: New parameter in the run_card:
          - sde_strategy: allows to change the default multi-channel strategy
          - a new phase-space optimization parameter are now easily availabe via the command "update ps_optim"
      OM: New global parameter "auto_convert_model"
          if set on True (set auto_convert_model T or via input/mg5_configuration.txt)
          all model crashing due to a python3 compatibility issue of the UFO model will be automatically converted
          to a python3 compatible model.

2.8.x (VBF and muon) release from the 2.0 series released 2020-08-21

Release information
Release notes:

      OM: pass to python3 by default
      OM: For LO process, you can now set lpp1 and lpp2 to "4" for process with initial photon in order to get the
          effective photon approximation. This mode behaves like the "3" one: The cut-off scale of the approximation
          is taken from the fixed renormalization factorisation scale: "dsqrt_q2fact1/dsqrt_q2fact2"
      OM: The width ao T-channel propagator are now set to zero automatically.
          To return to the previous behaviour , you can use the options "set zerowidth_tchannel False"
          (to set before the output command)
      OM: Change in madevent phase-space integrator for T-channel:
            - The integration of photon/Z/Higgs are now done together rather than separatly and follow importance
               samp...

2.7.x (weakly polarized) release from the 2.0 series released 2020-01-21

Release information
Release notes:

2.7.1(09/03/20)
      OM: Fixing issue (wrong cross-section and differential cross-section) for
          polarised sample when
           1) you have identical polarised particles
           2) those particles are decays
          examples: p p > j j w+{0} w+{T}, w+ > e+ e-
      OM: In presence of identical particles, if you define the exact number of decays
          (either via the decay chain syntax or via MadSpin) then they are assigned in an ordered way:
          generate p p > z{0} z{T}, z > l+ l-, z > j j
          means that the Longitudinal Z decays to lepton (transverse to jet)
          Thanks to Jie Xiao for reporting such issues.
      OM: Effective Photon approximation is now always done with a fix cutoff. This use the FIXED factorization scale
          of the associat...

2.5.x (Interface) release from the 2.0 series released 2016-09-08

Release information
Release notes:

2.5.5(25/05/17)
      OM: Fixing bug in the creation of the LO gridpack introduced in 2.4.3. Since 2.4.3 the generated
          gridpack were lacking to include the generated grid for each channel. This does not lead to
          bias but to a significant slow down of the associated gridpack.
      OM: Supporting user function calling other non default function.
      OM: adding the command "update to_slha1" and "update to_slha2" (still beta)
      RF: some cleanup in the NLO/Template files. Many unused subroutines deleted.

            The mode can be enabled with
            > set low_mem_multicore_nlo_generation True
