Dear All,

 A new version of Wannier90 (v2.1.0) is now available.
 As usual you can download it from http://www.wannier.org

 This release has contributions from many people, and the list of new features and their authors can be found in the  changelog for v.2.1.0 
 see  http://www.wannier.org/doc/CHANGE.log

 To highlight a few new features:
  * Implementation of the symmetry-adapted Wannier functions (see R. Sakuma, Phys. Rev. B 87, 235109 (2013), courtesy
   of R. Sakuma (Lund University, Sweden), T. Koretsune (Riken, JP),  Y. Nomura (U. Tokyo, JP), Y. Nohara (Atomic-Scale Material 
   Simulations, Co., Ltd.), R. Arita (Riken, JP)). Note this is currently only implemented in the PWSCF interface.
 * Added the use_ws_distance flag to improve the interpolation of  band structures (courtesy of L. Paulatto, UPMC Paris).
 * Non-collinear spins with ultrasoft pseudos now implemented in the pw2wannier90 interface with Quantum ESPRESSO, working
  also in parallel (courtesy F. Thoele (ETHZ, CH), T. Koretsune  (Riken, JP), L. Paulatto (UPMC Paris))

 The inclusion of features from the wider wannier community has been facilitated by moving the development of Wannier90 to Github.
 At our GitHub page https://github.com/wannier-developers/wannier90 you will find information on contributing to Wannier90 as well as details of projects already underway. So if you have a new feature you want contribute you can fork the project, add the feature and when ready submit a pull request for inclusion in the next release of Wannier90.
