Latest Version:

Latest version is McPhase 5.3.
Known Bugs:
- mcdiff: for nonmagnetic atoms usedadbdc=1 fails, workaround: set usedadbdc=0 and enter atomic coordinates dr1 dr2 dr3
- cpso1ion (outdated): does not read correctly more than 9 energy levels, workaround: use singleion and cpsingleion instead
