Herwig++ is a completely new event generator, written in C++. It is built on the experience gained with the well-known event generator HERWIG. The aim is to provide a multi purpose event generator with similar or improved capabilities (like angular ordered parton evolution and the cluster hadronization model). At some point the ongoing development of the Fortran version will terminate and Herwig++ will take over.
Herwig++ is based on ThePEG.

A small number of modules in Herwig++ use LoopTools. The required code is included in the Herwig++ tarball.
