Jmol 11.2 released -- over 50 new features

Jmol is a Java molecular viewer for three-dimensional chemical structures. Features include reading a variety of file types and output from quantum chemistry programs, and animation of multi-frame files and computed normal modes from quantum programs.

Jmol 11.2 introduces many new capabilities, including "flying" through the molecule in "navigation mode", internal (arbitrary plane) slabbing, surface cavity depiction, mapping of user-derived data onto surfaces, loading of files without replacing already-loaded files, variable translucency, the translating, rotating and inverting of selected atoms, the use of calculated mathematical values in all commands, and the writing of JVXL surface data directly to files.
