As some of you have probably guessed, Visual PROMETHEE 2.0 is now in the works. It will be a completely new release available for both Windows and OSX computers.
As our team of programmers is revisiting every window in Visual PROMETHEE it is a good time to send you a CFS (Call for Suggestions).
Indeed PROMETHEE would not be what it is today without you: over 900 published papers, thousands of downloads, ...
We are dedicated to providing decision-makers, researchers, consultants, friends of PROMETHEE with the best experience. We are listening to you.
Please tell us what feature you are missing, what feature could be improved. We will do our best to take your advice into account and to integrate your suggestions in Visual PROMETHEE 2.0
Best of all, Visual PROMETHEE will always be free for all non-profit research and teaching.

I will regularly post information about the new Visual PROMETHEE 2.0 version (VP2).
Here are some of the new features being implemented:
- VP2 will be available for both MS-Windows and Mac OSX. It is not rocket science but it is amazing (for me) how computer languages have evolved since I started to program PromCalc back in the 1980's. Choose the right computer language and there are no limits to what can be achieved ;-)
- Redesigned spreadsheet.
- The hierarchy of criteria is completely redesigned. Much easier to use.
- The menu structure is simplified. More functions, less menus!
- Improved actions/criteria identification: more shapes, more colors.

- Developing a much improved system for the management of categories of actions.

- The user interface and the new data model of VP2 take shape. It looks very nice on OSX too!
