Craig,

Maybe make a number of posts in this sub-forum for the various software programs, but don't reference the exact version number. In the first post put the link to the software download page. As new versions are released people can reply to the message with the latest release number. I'll make the posts sticky. You could edit this one by putting the link to the software in your original post. I believe that you as moderator can edit the title as well and make it say something like OpenRocket 1.x or 1.1.x. You may even be able to make the thread sticky yourself with your access.

Hooray for scaling!

This is really turning into a fantastic product.

I just got the new version, having used the older version.

It is fairly intuitive and I was able to make a rocket with several parts in less than an hour.

I'll see what I can do. It's been some time since I fiddled with any of the features of this forum, I'm a bit rusty...

At the top of the beginning of the thread page you should see a drop-down link called Thread Tools. That's where the magic happens.

What OS are you running? You should save the .jar file to your computer's hard disk before running it. It does not install to your hard disk like most Windows programs. The OpenRocket file should be in whatever directory that it was downloaded to. To make it easier to find, try copying it to your desktop.

You need a Java RTE (run time environment) to run the file. Go to the Sun Java Download Page and download the current RTE, install it. Then, you just create a desktop link to the OR *jar file. When you click the link, it will auto-start the RTE which will run OR.

OpenRocket 1.1.8 is available (as of August 25)...

Changes include:

This release contains bug fixes to the optimization methods. It also contains a workaround to a JRE bug that prevents running OpenRocket on some builds of Java 7.

The web pages have also been somewhat updated and Boris du Reau has created a separate site for coordinating the localization efforts for OpenRocket.

12.8.2011: Version 1.1.7 is released!

This release includes automatic rocket design optimization support (Analyze → Rocket optimization). You can optimize any amount of rocket parameters for apogee altitude, maximum velocity or a number of different values.

While the automatic optimization is a powerful tool, it is very easy to optimize against particulars of the simulation methods, instead of true physical phenomena. Always keep common sense at hand and take the results with a grain of salt.
