The first version of VMD's APBS Plugin is ready for release. This plugin
makes it much easier to get started with APBS, a powerful
Poisson-Boltzmann solver. The plugin has been tested with VMD >1.8.1 on
Windows, Mac OSX, Linux, and SunOS, and should work on all platforms
supported by these versions of VMD. More information on APBS and this
plugin is available at

A gzipped tar file of the plugin can be downloaded from
To install, download the file and unpack it to
<vmddir>/plugins/noarch/tcl, replacing <vmddir> with the location of the
local vmd install (typically /usr/local/lib/vmd). Further instructions
can be found in the README file included in the archive.

Thank you,
