The XAS team are interested in any feedback of your experience using the software. Please send bug reports and suggestions to email@example.com
Sakura depends on Python 2.7 and the Python scientific software modules listed here to operate. However, the standalone versions for Windows and Mac OS X do not require a separately installed Python distribution. But if you decide to download the source code version, you probably also need to install a Python distribution first (like EPD free or Canopy) to satisfy the dependencies.

Recognition of NeCTAR funding
The Australian Synchrotron is proud to be in partnership with the National eResearch Collaboration Tools and Resources (NeCTAR) project to develop eResearch Tools for the synchrotron research community. This will enable our scientific users to have instant access to the results of data during the course of their experiment which will facilitate better decision making and also provide the opportunity for ongoing data analysis via remote access.
