The Avogadro project is proud to announce the availability of Avogadro 0.9.6. This is a bug fix release, primarily to address a change in behavior of the Qt library. Avogadro 0.9.5 suffered from a bug that caused data loss on all platforms using Qt 4.5.0 or earlier. This bug did not affect Avogadro users linking to Qt 4.5.1, and so the Mac binary package was not affected.
Avogadro is an advanced, cross-platform molecular editor designed for flexible use in computational chemistry, molecular modeling, bioinformatics, materials science, and related areas. Packages are available for Linux, Mac OSX and Windows, as well as source code provided under the GNU GPL.
This release includes numerous enhancements and fixes from previous releases. The major improvements include:
Fixed bug causing data loss on file saves when using Qt 4.5.0 or earlier.
Windows release now handles chemical files with Unix and Windows line endings.
We hope you will contact the development team with any questions, comments or concerns. In particular, if you would like to contribute, or find out how to use Avogadro to fit your needs, we hope to hear from you.
