The Social Network Visualizer project has released a brand-new version of our favorite SNA application. SocNetV v3.0 brings improved speed and responsiveness, bugfixes and new command line parameters.

This is the first version to support hardware accelerated (OpenGL) rendering of the networks.

The Web Crawler has been improved to test for OpenSSL support in the OS and give the user hints what to do if no OpenSSL is present. Also, the delay between requests has been fixed and it works.

Among various bug fixes: fixed a serious bug in weighted network centrality computations (see #123).

Note: To run SocNetV 3.0 AppImage in Fedora 34 which uses Wayland by default, use:

env GDK_BACKEND=x11 ./SocNetV-3.0-dev-x86_64.AppImage

The new version is now available for Windows, macOS and Linux. Go to the SocNetV Downloads page and get it!
