Release Notes: A new "QuickSurf" molecular surface representation allows molecular dynamics trajectories to be animated for selections of 10,000 to well over 100,000 atoms depending on the speed of the host machine. The new Force Field Toolkit (FFTK) plugin is a set of tools that aids users in the development of CHARMM-compatible force field parameters. A new graphical interface to allow results from ProPKA runs to be interactively displayed in VMD. A new Android phone/tablet remote control is included in this release. Many other new and updated plugins are described on the VMD home page.
Release Notes: Support for several new stereoscopic display modes. Improved export of molecular scenes to Wavefront OBJ format, for animation and rendering tools such as Autodesk Maya. Export of molecular scenes to X3D and X3DOM for interactive display of molecules in WebGL capable browsers. Many improvements to ray tracing and movie making features. Multi-GPU CUDA acceleration of quantum chemistry molecular orbital display. Initial support for OpenCL GPU acceleration and MPI parallel analysis of molecular dynamics trajectories. Many new and improved structure building and analysis plugins.
