CosmoMC and CAMB with early dark energy and anisotropic stress

This code is a modified version of CosmoMC and CAMB that implements several dynamical dark energy models, incl. forms of early dark energy and models with anisotropic stress perturbations. Details can be found in the readme.txt files included in the release.
