New Diamond Version 4.0.3

May 6, 2015

A maintenance release 4.0.3 of "Diamond", our software for crystal and molecular structure visualization, has just become available. In this new version several bugs have been fixed:

  • "Voronoi polyhedra" dialog: Voronoi polyhedra can now be created around multiple selected (central) atoms.
  • Voronoi polyhedra function sometimes found "too many" neighbouring atoms or atoms too far away and/or unreasonable edge atoms ("<vertex>").
  • Properties pane: No or wrong info for "Dirichlet domain", if table of polyhedra was active above.
  • Runtime error could occur (and terminate Diamond) when Diamond failed to restore last working directory.
  • Option "Automatically create atoms and bonds" did not work properly when importing structure data having no translational symmetry, e.g. from an XYZ file.
  • Location of POV-Ray executable (when running a POV-Ray command) showed message boxed that were "forgotten" and not addressed to end user.
  • No context menus in the tables for distances/angles as well as reflection parameters.
  • "Transform" toolbar was not available. Now accessible via "View/Toolbars" submenu.
  • Diamond could hang up, if input data contained coordinates deviating heavily from normalized coordinates, e.g. "Fe1 150 -120 170".

For details, cf. our "Known Bugs" page.

Diamond version 4 customers should use the online update function (menu "Help/Online update") or check the "Diamond Version 4 Update Page" for alternative update choices.
