Alpha Release 3 (October 3, 2017)

Alpha Release 3 uses a new session format. Old session files should still work, but sessions saved using this release will not open in earlier releases. Some other additions include limited undo capability, support for surface textures, atom specification by distance from other atoms, and Colorbrewer color palettes.

Alpha Release 2 (August 15, 2017)

Alpha 2 release sessions save the state of atomic structures, volume maps and map series, sequences and alignments, surfaces, pseudobonds (e.g., hydrogen bonds), labels, and camera views. They do not save integrative hybrid models or results created by most tools (e.g., BLAST results from the blastprotein command). Alpha 3 will be introducing a new session format, but should still read alpha 2 sessions.
