VMD v1.8.3 molecular visualization tool adds support for OpenGL Shading Language, new representation

VMD is an open source molecular visualization program (Windows, Mac OS X , & Unix) for displaying, animating, and analyzing large biomolecular systems using 3D graphics and built-in scripting. The new v1.8.3 adds initial support for OpenGL Shading Language for high-quality fragment-rate lighting of space-filling molecular representations, and atomic Van der Waals spheres rendered via ray tracing within the fragment shader. It also adds support for a new volumetric file formats, 3D texturing of molecular geometry by potential maps, and density maps. A new caching system accelerates interactive rotation of static molecular structures on tiled display walls and other network-connected display systems with limited bandwidth and nomrally high latency.
