GAMGI 0.17.1

A program to build, view, and analyze atomic structureson the Linux operating system
GAMGI is an open source and completely free software project designed from the ground up to be used for creating and analyzing atomic structures. It features a graphical user interface that is simple, clean, easy-to-use and powerful.

Supports a wide-range of atomic structures

The application supports a wide-range of atomic structures, such as crystals, molecules, liquids and glasses. It also supports the 230 crystallographic space groups and can be used to perform 3D Voronoi analysis and point symmetry.

Supports many object types

GAMGI supports many object types, including Text, Orbital, Bond, Atom, Direction, Plane, Group, Molecule, Cluster, Cell, Arrow, Shape, Graph, Assembly, Light, Layer and Window. In addition, the program offers maximum control over low-level objects as atoms.

Build Random Close Packing structures

Among other features, we can mention that ability to build RCP (Random Close Packing) structures, crystals for any space group of symmetry, as well as coordination polyhedra and Voronoi for random structures. It can also determine any point group of symmetry.

Comes with comprehensive documentation

Another interesting feature is the ability to perform actions in a list of objects or a single object that was previously highlighted. It comes with comprehensive documentation and atomic data, including isotopic data and ionic radius. Additionally, the software can manipulate a vast amount of independent windows, lights, including spot, directional and positional, layers with various visibilities, referentials, viewports or projections, as well as 3D text fonts that can be either stroked or extruded.

It can be used in schools and universities

The GAMGI application can also be used in schools and universities to teach atomic structure of matter. It is the perfect tool for the scientists who work in atomistic modelling, as well as for those who need an open source application to study atomic structures and to prepare images for their presentations.

What's New in This Release:
  • Fixed a bug just introduced: we cannot unref the GDK visual after removing a GL context. Just removed this code. Apparently GTK does this when the widget is destroyed.
  • Improved gamgi_gtk_area.c, used in the X version of GAMGI, that replaces the GTKGLExt library by our own GLX-based code. Javier Cabezas ported this code to GTK 3 and is working fine! Back ported changes so the differences between the code for GTK 2 and GTK 3 are absolutely minimal.
  • We cannot use r,g,b colors because of a,b,c cell axes.
  • Improved Axes layout in Orbital->Create and Orbital->Modify dialogs.
