DataMelt is a successor of the popular jHepWork (2005-2013) and SCaVis (2013-2015) programs. These programs have been under intensive development since 2005. DataMelt is fully backward compatible with jHepWork 3.9 and SCaVis 2.3.
The original author of DataMelt ("DMelt") is Dr. Sergei Chekanov who has started this project in 2005 at the DESY laboratory (Germany). At that time it was called jHepWork (2005-2013), and later - SCaVis (2013-2015).
