Abstract. This article describes the latest stable release (version 2.2) of the Atmospheric Radiative Transfer Simulator (ARTS), a public domain software for radiative transfer simulations in the thermal spectral range (microwave to infrared). The main feature of this release is a planetary toolbox, that allows simulations for the planets Venus, Mars, and Jupiter, in addition to Earth. This required considerable model adaptations, most notably in the area of gaseous absorption calculations. Several other new features are also described, notably radio link budgets, back-scattering radar simulations, and the treatment of Faraday rotation and Zeeman splitting.

Short summary
The Atmospheric Radiative Transfer Simulator (ARTS) is a public domain software for simulating how radiation in the microwave to infrared spectral range travels through an atmosphere. The program can simulate satellite observations, in cloudy and clear atmospheres, and can also be used to calculate radiative energy fluxes. Main feature of this release is a planetary toolbox, that allows simulations for the planets Venus, Mars, and Jupiter, in addition to Earth.
