Does the new version supersede the previous version?: Yes

Nature of problem:
Simulation of electron energy loss spectroscopy (EELS) for plasmonic nanoparticles.

Solution method:
Boundary element method using electromagnetic potentials.

Reasons for new version:
The new version of the toolbox includes two additional classes for the simulation of electron energy loss spectroscopy (EELS) of plasmonic nanoparticles, and corrects a few minor bugs and inconsistencies.

Summary of revisions:
New classes "eelsstat" and "eelsret" for the simulation of electron energy loss spectroscopy (EELS) of plasmonic nanoparticles have been added. A few minor errors in the implementation of dipole excitation have been corrected.

Running time:
Depending on surface discretization between seconds and hours.
