* New Features:
- Reconaissance Metadynamics
- Driven adiabatic free energy dynamics
- Python interface
- Function of CVs
- Tool for unbiasing well-tempered metadynamics calculations
- Projection of gradient of CVs
- Tool to perform bias-exchange simulations via linux shell with every MD engine
- New INTERVAL keyword to limit the sampling along a CV

* New Collective Variables:
