Subject: Fungimol0.4 can do hydrocarbon chemistry

Announcing Fungimol version 0.4.
Fungimol is a extensible system that allows one to design atomic-scale objects. It's written in C++, and presently runs only under Linux.
It comes with source and binaries for Brennermd, a Fortran public domain molecular dynamics system for hydrocarbon chemistry produced by Donald Brenner, J.A. Harrison, S.B. Sinnott, and O. Shenderova.
Changes since version 0.3:
* Fungimol now includes Brenner's molecular dynamics code as a plugin. Peter McCluskey did the vast majority of the port of Brenner's Fortran code to C; some Zyvex code was used. Although this version can do interesting physics, it still is missing required features because it has no convenient way to edit the velocities of atoms in the scene.
* DesignAtom's now deal with Nitrogen, Oxygen, Sulphur, and Phosphorus. They used to only do Hydrogen and Carbon. Peter McCluskey contributed the code.
* There is now a choice of integration techniques. The default is now third-order Adams-Bashforth instead of Runge-Kutta.
