I'm delighted to announce that the Incentive build of PyMOL v1.4
has been released. Current subscribers can download the binaries
for Windows, Mac and Linux from http://pymol.org/dsc/ip and
access documentation and videos from
As you will see, the PyMOL builds are much larger. This is
because we're shipping a newer and much fuller version of Python,
optimized libraries for map generation, and chemistry libraries
for the new stereochemical labeling and atom typing.
Here's the Incentive PyMOL v1.4 feature list:
• New 64-bit MacPyMOL allows Mac users to access more than 4 GB
• Volume visualization for unique display of volumetric data and
simultaneous visualization of multiple iso-surfaces (see
• Electron density map generation from reﬂection data (Mac and
Linux only, Windows coming soon)
• Stereochemical labeling
• Improved Atom Typing; SYBYL/MOL2 and MacroModel support
• OpenGL Shaders (GLSL) for improved on-screen rendering
(cartoons, sticks, surfaces, volumes).
• Dynamic measurements (distances, bond angles and dihedral
• File > Save Molecule now allows saving of multiple ﬁles,
multi-state PDBs to a single ﬁle, and multi-state PDBs to
• Improved State Handling makes operations on multi-state objects
• Built using updated and Schrödinger-compatible distribution of
• PyMOL Web GUI (PWG)
• Several bug ﬁxes
Many of these features are already in the open-source code.
Within the next few weeks, we will put the volume visualization and
shaders into the open-source code. Stereochemical labeling and map
generation are not in the open-source project, but we are working on
adding them to the open-source project.
I will send an update soon when the volume visualization is in the
