JSmol users,

With recent improvements to jQuery, I'm happy to announce that there is no longer any need for any custom jQuery version for JSmol (JSmoljQuery.js). A new file, JSmoljQueryExt.js extends jQuery to allow synchronous binary file loading, MSIE cross-domain AJAX, and the popup menu and console.

Thanks are given to Keith Wood and to his excellent book, which I highly recommend for any power jQuery users: http://www.manning.com/wood/

A version of JSmol using this is at

   http://chemapps.stolaf.edu/jmol/zip/jmol-13.3.4_2013.08.20b.zip

and it is already in use at
 
   http://chemapps.stolaf.edu/jmol/jsmol/jsmol.htm

The extension file itself can be found in

   http://chemapps.stolaf.edu/jmol/jsmol/js

for those interested in seeing how it was done.

I'm definitely sold on jQuery!

Bob
