BALLView is an extensible viewer for bio-molecular structures.

BALLView project provides all standard models and offers rich functionality for molecular simulation and modeling, including molecular mechanics methods (AMBER and CHARMM force fields), continuum electrostatics methods employing a Finite-Difference Poisson Boltzmann solver, and secondary structure calculation.

Since BALLView is based on BALL (the Biochemical ALgorithms Library), it is easily extensible on the level of C++ code and it has an Python interface to allow interactive rapid prototyping.

What's New in 1.1.1 Stable Release:
This version finally brings full support for Python, DLLs, and nmake Makefiles under Windows.

What's New in 1.2 Beta 2 Development Release:
Support for recording macros by storing user inputs was added.
A new "PyBALL" application for Python scripting was added.
An improved Kekulizer implementation was added.
Smaller changes include an easier installation routine, support for Qt 4.2.2, and many bugfixes.
