Github download links

As a maintainer at SBo, a thing that frequently makes me want to pull my hair off is providing a proper download link for sources hosted at Github. I really should not list all the issues that I have had, because I will get angry. So, straight to the point. Continue reading

Ratiometric flow cytometry plot

One thing that I do not like is that by default, the program has black interface and black background. Continue reading
