New Diamond Version 4.6.1

November 19, 2019

A minor update 4.6.1 of "Diamond", our software for crystal and molecular structure visualization, has just become available. This new version has an enhancement and corrects some bugs:

  • The file import from Tripos MOL2 format was enhanced. Now you can import structure pairs that have been created and exported from CCDC Mercury with the "overlay molecules" function.
  • Lengthy calculations (or even hang-up or crash) in theoretical/calculated structures with high atom density (or lot of dummy atoms etc.) in examination of molecular units and Dirichlet domains (atomic environments, Voronoi polyhedra).
  • Tripos MOL2 format was not listed in File Open or Structure/Insert From File dialog. Bonds from this file format were not correctly imported.
  • Disorder informations were not correctly processed in some cases and in some file formats. For details, see the "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.
