New Diamond Version 4.3.0

November 29, 2016

A minor update 4.3.0 of "Diamond", our software for crystal and molecular structure visualization, has just become available. This new version offers some new functions as well as some improvements and bug fixes:

  • The following functions have been added:
    • A small database with the most common inorganic structure types has been added. You can use the new command "From Structure Type Database..." in the "Structure" menu to browse through a list of structure types and insert a dataset from this database into the current document. (The datasets have been taken from latest COD ("Crystallography Open Database") version.) A structure picture for that dataset can be created automatically or by an assistant.
    • Besides the options "brief" and "comprehensive", the data sheet can now be customized by the user (i.e. the selection and order of the items as well as a few more options can be changed) in the new "Data sheet settings" dialog. This is available through the new command "Configure [Data Sheet]" in the data sheet's context menu or from the dropdown menu in the title bar of the data sheet.
  • Some minor bugs could be resolved.

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.
