[Chimera-users] new version available

The normal way would be for you to download the whatever extension you 
wanted to try out and to install it using chimera's python -- 
CHIMERA/bin/python setup.py install.  The tough part is to use the same 
compiler that we're using so that the runtime's are compatible (especially 
true on Windows, you need to use Visual Studio .NET 2003, not as true on 
UNIX platforms).

The alternative is use a prebuilt binary.  This works really well with
Windows, but you need to install the Windows python so the extension will 
install properly and then copy the files to the appropriate place in the
Chimera hierarchy -- CHIMERA/bin/Lib/site-packages/ on Windows, 
CHIMERA/lib/python2.4/site-packages on UNIX (and a similar place on Mac OS 

 	Does that answer your question?
