since there are quite a few VMD users on this list,
i am forwarding john's announcement about the
third (and hopefully final) beta release of VMD 1.9
VMD-1.9 includes significant updates for LAMMPS related features,
most prominently triclinic cell support for the molfile plugin for lammps
atom style and custom dump files and the topotools plugin.
that - among other functions - supports reading lammps data files in
a similar fashion as dump files and can be used to create data files.
for more details on topotools see:
please send bug reports to [email protected]
and/or to me.
