> Greetings PyMOLers,
> I got back from my trip last night and immediately started putting the
> new features into the open source branch as promised. I've finished
> the merge, pushed the changes to SourceForge (revision 3938), and
> uploaded a tar file
> (https://sourceforge.net/projects/pymol/files/pymol/1.4/). I'm
> calling this v1.4b1 (beta one) on the SourceForge site.
> We will collect bug reports from you, the community, and then release
> the stable v1.4 official code once the serious bugs are fixed.
> Additionally, in order to improve communication and openness, I've
> re-enabled the SourceForge bug tracker
> (https://sourceforge.net/tracker/?group_id=4546&atid=104546). If
> someone would like to act as a good steward and help manage the
> tracker, please let me know. This will help us stay on top of the
> open-source bugs.
> For those adventurous enough to try the new code please give it a
> shot. If you're not familiar with building PyMOL, please wait for the
> stable v1.4 release. For those wishing to try the new beta release
> these following notes might help:
> (1) If you're building from source, please install
> * glew
> * glew-devel
> as they're new dependencies. I'm using glew 1.5.8 on OpenSuSE 11.3.
> (2) This update requires your hardware to support OpenGL 2.0+. There
> are known problems running this from within a VM. I think Parallels
> does handle openGL 2.0+, but VMWare does not yet support it.
> (3) Please update your video card drivers. My build just failed to
> compile shaders (at run time) because I had the wrong drivers
> (4) Volumes don't yet ray trace, but they will soon. For a nice
> image, "set use_shaders" and also try,
> Display > Quality > Maximum Quality
> before using the png command to save the image.
> (5) cealign is properly integrated and memory leaks and crashing
> should be fixed.
> (6) I only made changes to the Linux portion of the setup.sh file. If
> you're daring enough on Mac/Fink feel free to try get the build
> working there, too.
> (7) The 'svn diff' from the last revision is 12000+ lines long, so
> there's quite a few changes.
