Name: Social Networks Visualizer
Version: 0.6.0
Type: KDE Scientific
Depend: Qt 4.x
License: GPL
More Info:

 SocNetV is a cross-platform, user-friendly,
graphical application for Social Networks Analysis
and Visualisation, developed in Qt4.
It helps you construct social networks (aka
mathematical graphs) with a few clicks on a
virtual canvas or load networks of various formats
(GraphViz, GraphML, Adjacency, Pajek, UCINET, etc)
and modify them, or compute basic network
properties, such as density, diameter and
distances (shortest path lengths), as well as more
advanced structural statistics, such as node and
network centralities (i.e. closeness, betweeness,
graph), clustering coefficient, etc.

SocNetV supports various layout algorithms (i.e.
Spring-embedder, circular and in levels according
to various centrality indexes) for meaningful
visualisations. Furthermore, it can create random
networks (Erdos-Renyi, Watts-Strogatz, ring
lattice, etc) with a few clicks. 

SocNetV is licensed under the GNU Public License
version 3 (GPL3).

Caution: from v.0.45 and onwards, SocNetV needs
QtWebKit to compile. In other words, you cannot
compile 0.45 on distros with older version of Qt
(i.e. Ubuntu Hardy).

 Version 0.70 - June 29  2009
Codename: "Summertime"
- First web Crawler implementation. Use Shift+C to
test it. Doesn't support frames yet...
- Fixed bug #379204 which was crashing SocNetV
when creating small worlds above 201 nodes
- Fixed bug #381096 crashing SocNetV in Edge
Filtering when an edge was reciprocal.
- Fixed bug #381094 weight changes not recorded
correctly in symmetric edges.
- To speed things up, the on-the-fly Clustering
Coef. and Average Distance
calculation was removed from random network
creation routines.
- Random Layout is back!
- Speed improvement in FindNode method.
- Progress Bars now appear whenever a
distance-related calculation is
happening, so that the user knows what is
happening and how long it will take.
- Tom Tryfonidis prepared Arch PKGBUILDs for
SocNetV. You can install it from
