New in version 14.4

(June 2014 - October 2015)

  • New MUTATE command allows easy modification of protein residues, which along with set picking dragMinimize allows easy tweaking of the mutated group.
  • Biomolecule annotations including DSSR, RNA3D, EBI sequence domains, and PDB validation data.
  • Additional math functions for working with arrays, data tables, planes and polyhedra.
  • Simplified JmolSQL for working with annotations and other array-based data.
  • New DRAW and CGO options, including simple PostScript graphics reading.
  • New capability to display images in pop-up windows or within locations on a web page.
  • Integration into NBO (still in development).
  • Several important new load options, including volume filling (rather than unit cell filling) of crystal data, lattice scaling.
  • Significant enhancements in relation to polyhedra, including extension of stereochemical SMILES and SMARTS to atom environments, polyhedra matching, and the polyhedra() function.
  • Addition of Legendre polynomials for modulated structure CIF file loading.
  • Integration into AFLOW computational solid state physics project.

  • Easier zoom, perspectiveDepth on or off switching
  • 'hbonds on' does not calculate hbonds anymore. Instead, use 'hbonds calculate'. This enables the separation of hbonds data present in the pdb file (e.g. calculated by a separate algorithm) and hbond information as calculated by the Jmol hbond algorithm.
  • Extended label formatting options, printing three-letter, one-letter amino acid codes possible, also including all available atom information (e.g. coordinates) in the label.
  • The pop-up menu when right-clicking the applet can be disabled with 'set disablePopupMenu TRUE'. The pop-up menu itteself also can be tweaked.
  • An advanced selection option based on connectivity is introduced: select connected It can for example select based on the amount of connections an atom has, or to which atom it is connected.
  • Default atomtype coloring within a running applet can be changed by e.g. 'color hydrogen yellow'. Coloring of specific selections overrides the default coloring, as before.
  • Complete control of drawing bonds between (selected) atoms is now possible with the 'connect' command. Drawing of hydrogen bonds, double, triple, aromatic bonds is possible.
  • Orbitals and electron density and other information can now be drawn as isosurface or pmesh.
  • Advanced polyhedra bonds are introduced.
  • The stars command creates better visibility of selected atoms.
