'dSmooth' no longer in the ABF procedure?

Hello,

In the NAMD2.7b1 implementation of ABF, I notice that neither the "dSmooth"
option, nor an equivalent, is present. It is also not included in the
revised tutorial. It's purpose was initially:

"to alleviate the deleterious effects due to abrupt variations of the force,
the corresponding fluctuations are smoothed out, using a weighted running
average over a present number of adjacent bins, in lieu of the average on
the current bin"

Does the new implementation avoid these effects without the 'dSmooth'
parameter?

Many thanks,

Hugh
