 FET 5.10.1

FET is an evolutionary program (using a genetic algoritm) for automatically generating the timetable of a school, high-school or university.

FET is free software (open source). You can freely use, copy, modify and re-distribute it, as GNU/GPL permits (but please consider a donation)
Localized to English, French, Catalan, Romanian, Malay, Polish, Turkish, Dutch, German, Hungarian and Macedonian (maybe incompletely)
Fully automatic generation algorithm, allowing also semi-automatic or manual allocation
Platform independent implementation, allowing running on GNU/Linux, Windows, Mac and any system that Qt supports
Powerful flexible modular xml format for the input file, allowing editing with an xml editor or by hand (besides FET)
Possibility to view the currently generated timetable without stopping the ongoing simulation
The resulted timetables are exported into xml and html formats
Very flexible students (pupils) structure, in years, groups and subgroups. FET allows overlapping years and groups and non-overlapping subgroups
Possibility to consider a weight (percentage) for each constraint
Maximum total number of hours (periods) per day: 30
Maximum number of working days per week: 14
Maximum total number of teachers: 700
Maximum total number of subgroups (sets) of students: 5000
Maximum total number of subjects: 1000
Virtually unlimited number of subject tags
Maximum number of activities: 2000 (you can compile or ask the author a version with more activities allowed)
Maximum number of rooms: 300
Maximum number of buildings: 100
Maximum number of equipments: 300
Adjustable duration for each activity (each activity can have duration of 1 hour, 2 hours, 3 hours or more)
Possibility of adding multiple teachers and students sets for each activity. That is, each activity can have specified at most 400 students subgroups (sets) and 100 teachers
Maximum number of time constraints: 3000
Maximum number of space constraints: 3000
A large and flexible palette of time constraints
A large and flexible palette of space constraints

What's New
Speed improvement if user has constraints activities same starting time. Idea and partial code by Volker Dirr.
Added possibility to print activities with same starting time in the html timetables (suggested on the forum, implemented by Volker Dirr).
Minor interface improments under GNU/Linux. The combo boxes are now smaller.
Modified the main menu arrangement of constraints (suggested by Massimo Mancini).
Crash bug fix (very rare, if user pressed cancel immediately after hitting generation start in timetable generate dialog).
Added another sample file (by T. Renganathan).
