The Biochemical ALgorithms Library (BALL) is a
framework for rapid application development in
molecular modeling and structural bioinformatics.
BALL provides an extensive set of data structures
as well as classes for molecular mechanics,
advanced solvation methods, comparison and
analysis of protein structures, file
import/export, NMR shift prediction, and
visualization. Its extensibility results from an
object-oriented and generic programming approach.
This version finally brings full support for
Python, DLLs, and nmake Makefiles under Windows. A
large number of prominent fixes were made,
especialy for g++ 4.x. Some new functionality was
added to BALLView.
BALL and BALLView are now licensed under the
Lesser GNU Public License (LGPL) and the GNU
Public License (GPL), respectively. New models
(ribbon mode, cartoon models for nucleic acids)
and new coloring methods (by chain) were added.
Some major bugfixes were done.
