Hello everybody,
A new version of Chimera (1.2415) is available for all platforms:

It is a candidate for a production release we plan to make in about a  
week.  Many new features have been added since our last production  
release (1.2304, October 2006), as detailed in the release notes:

Here are just a few of the changes since last October:

- embedded POV-Ray for production of glossy, shadowed images  
including labels
- ability to supersample or to use POV-Ray when recording movies
- new input formats: MDL MOL/SDF, Gromacs trajectories
- new Fetch by ID types: EDS (fo-fc) electron density difference map,  
PQS predicted biological unit
- Presets menu with display settings for interactive Chimera use or  
generation of publication images
- Side View includes "top view" for interactively adjusting stereo  
parameters and perspective
- expanded morphing capabilities
- new Fit Map in Map tool
- new windowsize command
- updates to handle new naming conventions in the remediated PDB

Enjoy! (and do let us know right away via "Report a Bug" or chimera- 
bugs at cgl.ucsf.edu if you find any problems)
