kfile_chemical is a set of kfile plugins for chemistry documents. It has support for XYZ, PDB, MDL mol/sd, Mol2, CML, ShelX, SMILES and CIF files.

kfile_chemical is currently in alpha stage: 1.0 will be alpha too; it will be feature complete, i.e. proving plugins kfile plugins for all files mentioned at the official chemical mime page (and a few more).

Version 2.0 will be beta, and feature a more organized set of extracted pieces of information.

Version 3.0 will be beta too, and mime magic, which is a method to detect the mime type not from the file extension, but from the content.

Verion 4.0 will be the first stable release and is aimed to be ready with Kubuntu 6.04 and KDE 4.0.

What's New in This Release:
This release adds support for chemical-mime-data, thus synchronizing with the main MIME type library for chemical data.
It also fixes QChar / QString conversion, the FSF address, and the contact email address.
