[Chimera-users] Thermal ellipsoids

I see thermal ellipsoid rendering was just enabled. This is another  
point (in a long list of points) in favor of using  Chimera.

Is there a plan to be able to display ellipsoid axis or octants as in  
ortep type renderings. This would be extremely useful in small  
molecule work. I've been using Chimera as an alternate when reporting  
structures in my lab and it has been very well received. The first  
question asked when I distributed a report today was about the axis  
and/or octants.

Great work. Keep it up!
