Thermo-Calc 2019a was released in December 2018 and brings many new databases, improved tools for integrating Thermo-Calc into an ICME workflow and the first ever material-specific property model library.
Highlights of the Thermo-Calc 2019a release:
Expanded TC-Python for ICME integration, including the ability to do diffusion calculations and to access all the functionality of the Property Model Calculator including the new Steel Model Library.
Steel Model Library, with pre-configured martensite and pearlite models and for use with the Property Model Calculator.
Databases: 6 new and 2 updated. These include both thermodynamic and mobility databases for nickel-based, aluminum-based and titanium and titanium aluminide-based alloys. The magnesium-based and high entropy alloy databases are updated.
Thermo-Calc 2018b is released in June 2018 and includes the addition of three key features to the TC-Python API and two new thermodynamic databases for metal oxide solutions (TCOX8) and Mg-based alloys (TCMG5).

The Diffusion module (DICTRA), the software program for accurate simulation of diffusion controlled reactions in multicomponent alloy systems, is now available in the graphical mode beginning with Thermo-Calc 2017a, making it easier than ever for users to begin making diffusion simulations.

Beginning with Thermo-Calc 2016a the Precipitation Module (TC-PRISMA) has been integrated into Thermo-Calc, eliminating the need for users to install two separate software programs.
This integration offers a significant upgrade to the Precipitation Module (TC-PRISMA) as it gives it all the features that were already available within Thermo-Calc, such as overlaying plots and cloning systems.
Try the Precipitation module (TC-PRISMA) for Free
Users who do not have a Precipitation Module (TC-PRISMA) license can now try the precipitation calculator for free using one of the three free kinetic demo databases automatically included in the software.
Graphical mode examples 13 and 16 are available to all users, even those without a license.
Runs on Mac and Linux OS
Now that it is integrated into Thermo-Calc, the Precipitation module (TC-PRISMA) is supported on several Mac and Linux operating systems. See the System Requirements for a complete list.
