Hi all,

I pushed 2.7 out the door on Friday. There have been over 180 downloads
and no complaints so far. The only significant change since 2.7b4 is that
the CUDA build now calculates the full pressure tensor and therefore
supports anisotropic periodic cell fluctuations. The extra bonds feature
has also been documented in the user guide.

For new information and installation at Abe, Ranger, and Kraken see

I have just discovered that since 2.7b3 the charmrun for net versions does
not tolerate being suspended with control-Z or kill -STOP like it used to.
I will update the 2.7 packages with a fixed charmrun when it is available.

Thanks for your patience and support!
