    Good news everyone!

    JTango has finally made it into maven central:

    Special thanks to Reynald Bourtembourg! He has made a considerable input to the process.

    There is a few things to note though:

    JTango artifact type is now pom as it is a meta artifact that aggregates all the JTango related dependencies. So define it as follows in your pom.xml:


    Tango Controls bintray repository for JTango has been changed from maven to jtango (link) as it was not possible to sync old repo with maven central

    jtango-maven-archetype has been upgraded to 1.4 to use maven central. Use

    mvn archetype:generate -U ...

    to force update.

    JTango fat jar is now deployed to a dedicated repo:

    Stay tuned:

    A new era has about to start in the Tango Controls community with the Tango Controls Collaboration Contract! Four institutes, Elettra + Solaris + MAX IV + ESRF + ALBA,  have signed the Collaboration Contract. They will soon be joined by three other institutes. The Collaboration Contract will allow the Tango Controls community to have funds to maintain the common core of Tango. The signatories of the Collaboration Contract will together form the Executive Board which will be in charge of deciding what the finances should be spent on. The budget will help ensure the sustainability of Tango. Tasks which are lacking resources today can now be addressed in the interests of the whole community. The new contract is another step of Tango Controls in the direction of a long life with continuous improvements!

  • 100mA1.5GeV.png

    Dear Tangoers,

    I'm happy to announce that the Solaris finished the first stage of the commissioning. We have injected 200mA into the storage ring as well as ramped the beam to full 1.5GeV energy at more than 100mA. So, the Solaris future shines brightly :).

    Thank you All !!!

    Coming two months we have upgrade shutdown. We will install some additional RF cavities (so called Landau) into the storage ring, finish construction of the PEEM beamline and upgrade the control system to Tango 9. Next year we will proceed with commissioning of beamlines .

    After having commissioned the linac in the spring and getting up to 10 turns a few times in recent weeks, we have now completed the crucial step of keeping electrons circulating in the 3 GeV ring while they lose energy and produce light.

    The control system, powered by Tango on steroids, has proven to be highly stable and scalable, controlling more than 7651 devices from hundreds of classes.

    We would like to thank the entire Tango community for their excellent work, as well as all of our industrial partners.

    The Prevac is a next company who would like to use TANGO CS for integration of their systems. They are a Polish company specialized in precision UHV technology.

    Month ago (16-20.07.2015), the Solaris has provided training to them. It is a part of collaboration on migration of their software platform to Tango. The migration has been triggered by MAX-IV who contracted to Prevac delivery of an UARPES end-station. It is then continuation of collaboration between Solaris and MAX-IV, too.
