A Chimera production release candidate (version 1.5.3) is now available:


Please try it and report any problems. The 1.5 series includes 64-bit versions and will be the last for X11 on Mac (not to worry, the native Mac versions will still be supported).  See the release notes for changes relative to previous versions of Chimera:


Relative to 1.5.2, version 1.5.3:

- corrects line width in saved images 
(affects mesh, silhouette edges, and other lines such as H-bonds)
- fixes error on Windows associated with non-Unicode usernames
- turns multisampling off by default on Macs 
(it was associated with bad behaviors on some Mac systems)
