The ROOT team is happy (and a bit proud!) to announce the release of
ROOT v6.20/00! It took a while - but now it's ready for you!
* The new prompt functionality `root .help TTree::Draw` does what
you'd expect it to do: open ROOT's documentation on TTree::Draw in a
browser window (or, if remote, show the URL so you can click it.) We
hope you'll enjoy that!
* RooFit has lots of improvements in this release, from considerable
speed-ups to a myriad of fixed bugs.
* ROOT does not show its splash screen during start-up anymore. In case
you miss it, just run root -a.
* PyROOT receives a major upgrade in v6.22. You'll need to get prepared
by a couple of Python code changes on your side, notably when
instantiating class templates from Python. The release notes spell out
And many, many bugs were fixed! See
<https://root.cern/content/release-62000> for details such as release
notes and downloads.
As always, thank you very much for your reports, patches, reproducers,
and simply for using ROOT!
Please come to the *ROOT workshop*, June 8-11, 2020, at Fermilab
Submit your abstract soon, and please spread the news about the
