This is more of a “fun” thing. But Avogadro just passed a million downloads on SourceForge.
One million downloads.
Considering the recent community survey indicated ~40% of users install through package managers, that’s a huge number. At the moment, we also have >1500 citations on Google Scholar for the paper.
Thanks to an amazing community, from all the contributors, to the users, testers, bug reporters, … it’s amazing to pass this milestone and we couldn’t have done it without all of you. That’s the wonderful thing of open source.
We’ve got lots more planned for 2018!
