RE: NAMD 2.7?

Hi all,
   for those interested in metadynamics in general me and some of
my mates (joint project ETH Zurich and University of Milan, Grometa-
project) are working actively in developing a metadynamics
implementation from Parrinello's group which should be patchable
into namd2.6 code
and currently patches with no problem in the actual cvs version.
We hope it will be released in few months from now (already working,
still under testing)
If any of you is in interested please feel free to contact me!

Hi Chris,

Thank you for your reply. One of the features I'd like to see is the
scalability improvement in the new version of NAMD. Browsing the web I
found an interesting report on this issue using NAMD 2.7

Another thing I'm intrigued about is the possibility of including
metadynamics and/or accelerated molecular dynamics in the code. I know
Andy McCammon's group has already implemented the later in the AMBER

Please don't feel under pressure to release anything that shouldn't be
(yet) released :)
