I propose locking in the current release candidate for 11.0 as "11.0".
There has been very little action on this lately, and the bug fixes are
quite minimal. I believe 10.2 can be considered completely deprecated.
Also, 11.1.14 is SUCH a big addition, with all the arithmetic/variable
processing (see accompanying Jmol-users posting), I propose we copy it
as 11.2.RC1 in a new branch for bug fixes only and release it as such,
and rename it 11.3.1 in the trunk for continued development.
I note that the actual amount of Jar space due to these additions is
only about 6K, because I was able to improve code efficiency in other

I'd like us to seriously consider releasing 11.2 by, perhaps, May 25.
I'll be done with my sabbatical for the most part and seriously into
summer research after that, so it would be a good time to wrap this
version up and perhaps slow down a bit. I think there have been plenty
of additions to Jmol to justify a release, and I don't foresee anything
major being added any time soon. (Of course, I didn't see that language
business coming, either, so who knows?) In all, it's been quite a year,
I must say. Perhaps hard to believe that last year at this time Jmol...
...was already an amazing applet, but it...
...couldn't load multiple files
...had only CUBE file support for isosurfaces
...only included pmesh support for planes
...couldn't do a thing with molecular orbitals
...didn't include the concept of crystallographic symmetry
...had essentially no variables or arithmetic operations
...oh, I'm too tired to list any more!
Anyway, that was Jmol 10.3 and, believe it or not, 2506 revisions ago!
Thanks to all for making this such a great year for me. And I think the
real fun will be at the Gordon Research Conference on Molecular
Visualization in Science and Education in July, where I guess I'll be
"Mr. Jmol" for a week. :)

OK. I update the NL translation yesterday, and will check every now and then.
The next two weeks I will be in Sweden, first week for a holliday, second week
for the Bioclipse workshop (where I will demo the Jmol view).

A freeze so to say. Sounds good. On the other hand, I won't be able to do
anything in the next two weeks.
BTW, I tried putting Jmol trunk/ in Bioclipse, but failed with a number of
problems. Bob, I need your help there at some point.

not surprised. The interfaces have changed a bit. How about skype for
that, when you are ready?
