Version 8 of Jmol

Release Notes: This release adds reading of CIF and mmCIF files, a Chinese translation of the GUI, a --help commandline option, a command history for the script window, auto-decompression of gzip-ed files, and a JmolAppletProxy that allow applets to fetch remote files. It also fixes the detection of some types of MDL mol and CML files, reading crystal structures in CML2 format, the recent files window, and showing the filename in the Jmol window title.

Release Notes: This release fixes a lot of bugs, including a problem in which the SHELX reader did not read LATT records, a problem with the frame not unloading properly between models, a problem with quitting during pause, lcaoCartoon orientation problems, and a problem with alignment for the p orbitals for allene central carbon. It also adds a new "no display" mode, exporting of images from script, and a new command history that holds the last 100 commands from the menu, buttons, and console.

Release Notes: This release adds many new script commands, including "calculate" that has "surface" and "hbonds" arguments, setting of pickingStyle MEASURE ON/OFF, isosurface select(xxx) ignore(not xxx) sasurface, select carbohydrate, select/color surfaceDistance, set backgroundModel N, and set forceAutoBond. It has a redesigned applet console with command history and buttons, deuterium and tritium isotope support, and save/restore bonds and orientation support.

Release Notes: This release makes the Jmol scripting language go far beyond Rasmol script, adding commands like conformation [n], draw arrow|line|plane|point, getproperty, isosurface, lcaoCartoon, load "file" {i j k} spacegroup "[Hall Symbol]", mo (for molecular orbitals), polyhedra, and many, many more. It also adds support for new file formats, like argusFile, mol2, Wavefunction Odyssey, and Spartan 06.
