I'm extremely proud to announce the release of Open Babel 2.0.0, the
latest stable version of the free chemistry file translation program
and chemistry software library. This release marks the fourth
"birthday" of the Open Babel project and a milestone for a stable,
flexible interface for developers and users alike.
OpenBabel is a project designed to pick up where Babel left off, as a
cross-platform program and library designed to interconvert between
many file formats used in molecular modeling, computational chemistry
and related areas.
Highlights of the 2.0 release include a new conversion framework
making it easier to develop new translators, dramatically improved
support for merging, splitting, and batch conversion, a framework for
molecular fingerprints, similarity searching, a fast molecular
database format, support for Perl and Python scripting "wrappers,"
automatic support for reading .gz (gzip) compressed files, support
for the new IUPAC/NIST InChI identifiers and more.
Many thanks to all the contributors to Open Babel. Particular thanks
go to (in no particular order) Jean Bréfort, Nick England, David
Hoekman, Elmar Krieger, Christian Laggner, Chris Morley, and Chris
Swain for helping to get this release out the door.
