PyMOL v1.3 has been released. Current subscribers can download
binaries for Windows, Mac and Linux from http://pymol.org/dsc/ip. The
v1.3 code is open-source revision 3909.
Warren said it best, so I'll quote him here, in magnificent Python triple-quote:
As usual, I recommend caution with upgrading. Please don't upgrade
right before a major talk or presentation, unless you have time to test
everything thoroughly beforehand. There were many last-minute changes
made after the last beta, so some glitches are to be expected.
I warn you because we completely revamped the PyMOL build process.
This will no doubt cause issues. We focused on the build process
early because a clean build process will allow us to focus on
development, not dealing with cross-platform issues and lagging build
We've also pushed to ensure that AxPyMOL (http://pymol.org/axpymol) and
JyMOL (http://pymol.org/jymol) will also live on. Those will be
released in a few days, too.
Also, we'll be releasing a new PyMOL website with updated screencasts
and growing support. That seems to be a couple weeks away, though.
Finally, it has been a humbling experience to step into the shoes of
my mentor and get a glimpse of what he had been shouldering for the
past decade. He was a genius who worked and gave incessantly. While
it was easier for us when Warren was here, we still need to learn and
PyMOL v1.3 is us, moving forward.
