change to download options...

Dear KIM Community,

The KIM Team has decided to change the technical details of how we make Model Driver and Model content available for download on We believe most users will be unaffected by this change.

Currently there are three places you can download a tar archive of a Model:

(1) The Model's "Model page" (e.g.,

(2) The individual archives directory (e.g.,

(3) The collection archives directory (i.e., where a single tar archive of
     all model drivers and models can be obtained.

It has been decided that the individual archives directories (2) have outlived their original purpose and, thus effective immediately, they will be discontinued.

The "Model page" and "collection archives" will continue to be available for downloading content.

Please let us know if you have any questions or if this negatively impacts your use of the KIM system.
