# Impact - A Modelica Package Manager

As mentioned previously, Xogeny collaborated on the development of an open source package manager for Modelica. This package manager, called impact, allows Modelica developers to easily fetch versions of their favorite libraries whether they are developed by the Modelica Association or third parties.

The latest version of the impact package manager is now available from PyPI and GitHub. Version 0.5.8 introduces, for the first time, full compatibility with both Python 2 and Python 3.

These improvements are due to the hard work of Dietmar Winkler and Matthis Thorade.
