|15-Aug-17||The Database of Zeolite Structures continues to develop|
Several features have been added to the database recently:
|The origin of the type material name and the derivation of the associated three letter code has been added to the Type Material page.
|The number of topologically distinct T-atoms in the idealized framework structure has been added as a search option on the Advanced Search/Channel System page.
|The dropdown menus now work on mobile devices as well.
|Older framework drawings are being replaced by newer ones as time permits (42 done so far).
|Many thanks to our users for the suggestions and to our Database guru Christian Baerlocher for their implementation!|
|18-Jul-17||Three new Framework Type Codes have been approved|

|1-Oct-16||20 years of Zeolite Structures on the web|
To celebrate this milestone, some significant changes have been made to the Database of Zeolite Structures.
At first glance, the new database does not appear to be any different from the old one, but it is:
|The internal organization of the database has been completely reworked and everything has been migrated to open source software. The database is now completely platform independent.
|It is now running on 3 virtual (commercial) servers situated in Europe, North America and Asia.
|These servers are run and maintained independently by 3 groups: Christian Baerlocher and Lynne McCusker (ETH Zurich), Christine Kirschhock and her team (KU Leuven) and Wei Wan and Xiaodong Zou (Stockholm University), respectively.
|The basic layout has been retained for the time being, but a few new features have been added, including a more interactive XPD pattern display. Further additions/improvements are planned, so watch this space.
|Although we have done our best to check that the database is working properly before putting it online, we realize that some errors may have gone undetected. If you run into any difficulties, please send a short e-mail message describing the problem to Christian Baerlocher.|
