BALLView 1.4.0

BALLView is an extensible viewer for bio-molecular structures.
BALLView is an extensible viewer for bio-molecular structures.

BALLView project provides all standard models and offers rich functionality for molecular simulation and modeling, including molecular mechanics methods (AMBER and CHARMM force fields), continuum electrostatics methods employing a Finite-Difference Poisso

Since BALLView is based on BALL (the Biochemical ALgorithms Library), it is easily extensible on the level of C++ code and it has an Python interface to allow interactive rapid prototyping.

What's New in This Release:

· An integrated molecule editor, the Merck Molecular Force Field (MMFF 94), and an automated download of structures from PDB and PubChem were added.
· The visualization was extended with volume rendering and field lines for electrostatics, improved cartoon and ribbon models, non-photorealistic shading, and off-screen rendering.
· In addition, numerous improvements to the interface were made.
· A new autobuild script now allows a much simpler installation of BALL and BALLView.
· Support for the PowerPC architecture (on Linux) was added, and the support for MacOS was improved.
