VMEC Users Group,

Happy New Year! The VMECwiki (http://vmecwiki.pppl.wikispaces.net/) is slowly growing and hopefully in 2011 more VMEC/STELLOPT users will join the site. Here at PPPL we've been using VMEC v6.9 for some time now and I've recently compiled the latest version v8.47 on the cluster. So I think one task for 2011 is to get explanations of the versions up on the site. I'm playing around with different ideas but I think I'll probably keep things mostly as they are and introduce a change log for the codes. I'll also work on getting more codes up on the site, users are welcome to contribute.
