November 29, 2018: PLATON v3.0 is out! Please check the release notes on GitHub for the list of new features. Our paper actually describes v2.1, but v3 has a substantial number of improvements, and we strongly recommend everyone use it.

NEW (October 1): Version 2 is out, with a huge number of changes! Make sure to check out the release notes, and upgrade.
