Subject: AMBER: Release of version 1.2 of AmberTools

From: David A. Case (

We have prepared a new version of the AmberTools package, version 1.2.

This is mostly a bug-fix release to version 1.0, fixing compilation problems
on some machines as well as incorporating bugfixes 1-7 from the Amber web
page. There are other small fixes as well, and version 1.2 improves the SCF
convergence in mopac calculations for some compilers.

If you have not had obvious problems with AmberTools 1.0, you probably don't
*need* to upgrade (although you are welcome to do so). The upgrade will be
most useful to Linux users with older compilers, and users running BSD,
MacOSX, and Solaris.

To find out more about AmberTools, and to download version 1.2, please visit:

[Note for the curious: version 1.1 of AmberTools was posted on the web
site, but never "advertised", since we found the additional mopac problems
immediately after that version was made.]
