What's included

History

Ramus was originally developed between 2011 and 2012, and saw use until the following year. After a 7-year hiatus, I revived it in 2020 with new insights... then promptly set it aside for another year. Won't happen again, hopefully.

The current version is 2.5 (as of ). Older versions also remain available. For more details, see the project news history.
