New Diamond Version 4.0.2

March 5, 2015

A maintenance release 4.0.2 of "Diamond", our software for crystal and molecular structure visualization, has just become available. In this new version several bugs have been fixed:

  • In the "Create H-Bonds" dialog, the "Generic" setting did not work but only the "direct definition".
  • In the "Expand" dialog, the checkboxes "Create D..A contacts from H-bond definitions" and "Create H..A bonds" did not work.
  • Invisible atoms at the invisible ends of broken-off bonds could remain as "zombies" in the structure picture.
  • In the "Broken-off Bonds" dialog, several bugs were resolved.
  • Default designs of broken-off bonds, H-bonds, and contacts were not stored in Registry.
  • Voronoi polyhedron function did not consider when atoms were disabled in the "Filter" function.
  • Some errors in context with "Undo" and "Redo" were resolved.
  • Some informations about pictures in the "Details" mode of the thumbnails preview were missing.
  • The location of the POV-Ray executable often failed.
  • "Save" dialog might not appear, if latest or working directory is a network path containing dots.

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.
