openModeller 1.4.0 发布，此版本更新内容如下：
A new "meta" algorithm which can use several algorithms behind the scenes to generate a consensus model.
A new commandline tool (om_evaluate) can be used to return raw model values given a set of points and an environmental scenario.
A new version of the Web service (OMWS 2.0) is also available, including new operations, one of them allowing whole experiments to be specified in a single request.
A new raster driver now allows remote files to the fetched and used.
There were also many changes in the framework itself.
openModeller是一个C + +的框架，它提供了一个统一的方法，使用各种不同的算法对分布格局进行建模。它可以用来预测物种潜在分布基于一套地理发生点和一套环境层。
