Dear Colleagues!

The NEST Initiative is pleased to announce the release of NEST version 2.10.0. 

The most notable changes over v2.8.0 are:

* Support for simulations of gap junctions (see Jan Hahne et al., 2015)
* Framework for structural plasticity (see Markus Butz et al., 2013 and Markus Butz et al., 2014)
* Full support for the K computer (just in case you found one under your Christmas tree ;-))

All users are encouraged to upgrade and adapt their simulation scripts to the changes in the user interface at this point in time to benefit from the improvements in the new version.
