# Release_2020.09.1
(Changes relative to Release_2020.03.1)


## Backwards incompatible changes
- We've added additional allowed valences for Cl (now 1, 3, 5), Br (now 1, 3,
  5), I (now 1, 3, 5), At (now 1, 3, 5), Xe (now 0, 2, 4, 6), and Po (now 2, 4,
  6). Molecules with atoms in the new valence states will no longer generate
  sanitization errors. Note that this has an impact on the chemistry of
  molecules containing 3-valent I and at least one implict H (present 24 times
  in ChEMBL 27): previously this was incorrectly assigned two implicit Hs, now
  it has no implicit Hs. 
- Aromaticity perception of molecules like `Cc1nnc2n1c1ccccc1n1c(C)nnc12` now
  correctly recognizes the full outer envelope, i.e. the bonds joining the rings
  are now also aromatic.
- FindMCS() may return single atom MCSs, whereas previously it returned an empty
  MCS unless there was at least one commond bond across the input structures.
  So the MCS between molecules `CC` and `CO` is now `[#6]` rather than being null.
- The fontSize()/setFontSize() (FontSize()/SetFontSize()) methods in MolDraw2D
  now work in units of pixels (more or less) instead of the molecule units.
- The Open3DAlign functionality is now in its own separate library - `O3AAlign`
  in cmake. If you are working in C++ and using O3A functionality, you'll need
  to link against this library as well now.
- Due to improvements in the tautomer enumeration code, the method
  `TautomerEnumerator::enumerate` now returns a `TautomerEnumeratorResult`
  object instead of a vector of molecules. Note that if you are iterating over
  the results of a call to `enumerate()` you shouldn't need to change your code.
  If you want to invoke the old (and deprecated, see below) form from C++, call
  `TautomerNumerator::enumerate(mol, nullptr)` or explicitly pass a
  `boost::dynamic_bitset*` to capture the modified atoms.
- The default precision setting for coordgen has been changed. The new default
  was selected to greatly reduce the number of molecules for which it takes a
  very long time to generate coordinates while still producing nice looking
  structures. We may continue to tweak this default value if/when problems
  with it are reported. If you would like to go back to the previous setting, set 
  CoordgenParams.minimizerPrecision to CoordgenParams.sketcherStandardPrecision 
  when you invoke rdCoordGen.AddCoords()
- Uncharger::uncharge() will now neutralize `[Cl,Br,I][O-], [Cl,Br,I](=O)[O-],
  [Cl,Br,I](=O)(=O)[O-], [Cl,Br,I](=O)(=O)(=O)[O-], [O-]N=N[O-], [N,P](=O)[O-],
  [N+](=O)([O-])[O-], P(=O)([O-])[O-], P(=O)([O-])([O-])[O-], S([O-])[O-],
  S(=O)([O-])[O-], S(=O)(=O)([O-])[O-], S(=O)(=O)([O-])OOS(=O)(=O)[O-]`.
  Previously not all of these inorganic acid counterions were consistently
  neutralized.
- The `None` value in the `RGroupCoreAlignment` enum was renamed to `NoAlignment`
  in both C++ and Python, in order to avoid issues when attempting to access it
  from Python.

## Highlights
- There's been another big improvement in the quality of molecule drawings:
  character and font handling is greatly improved thanks to the use of the
  FreeType library
- A new feature has been added to efficiently allow tautomer-insensitive
  substructure search.
- A new, much more accurate, algorithm is available for calculating CIP labels
  on atoms and bonds.
- There's a new rdDeprotect module to allow automatically deprotecting molecules
  before putting them into reactions
- Molecule and reaction metadata can now be added to PNG files generated by
  MolDraw2DCairo

## Code removed in this release:
- To improve API consistency of the exceptions in RDKit with the default ones in
  the STL, the several `message()` methods and `Invariant::getMessage()` in RDKit's
  exceptions have been removed in favor of `what()`. 
- The old MolHash code has been removed from the C++ code, all wrappers, and the
  PostgreSQL cartridge.

## Deprecated code (to be removed in a future release):
- The function `FileParserUtils::replaceAtomWithQueryAtom()` has been moved to
  the namespace QueryOps. Please use `QueryOps::replaceAtomWithQueryAtom()`
  instead. The version in the `FileParserUtils` namespace will be removed in the
  next release.
- The method `std::vector<ROMOL_SPTR> TautomerEnumerator::enumerate(const ROMol &mol, boost::dynamic_bitset<> *modifiedAtoms, boost::dynamic_bitset<> *modifiedBonds = nullptr)` 
  is deprecated and will be removed in a future release. 
  Please use `TautomerEnumeratorResult TautomerEnumerator::enumerate(const ROMol &mol,bool reassignStereo = true)` 
  instead.
- The `MolDraw2DQt` class is no longer supported since we don't think anyone is
  using it. It will be removed in the 2021.03 release unless we learn otherwise.



# Release_2020.03.1
(Changes relative to Release_2019.09.1)

## Backwards incompatible changes
- Searches for equal molecules (i.e. `mol1 @= mol2`) in the PostgreSQL cartridge
  now use the `do_chiral_sss` option. So if `do_chiral_sss` is false (the
  default), the molecules `CC(F)Cl` and `C[C@H](F)Cl` will be considered to be equal.
  Previously these molecules were always considered to be different.
- Attempting to create a MolSupplier from a filename pointing to an empty file,
  a file that does not exist or sometihing that is not a standard file (i.e.
  something like a directory) now generates an exception.
- The cmake option `RDK_OPTIMIZE_NATIVE` has been renamed to `RDK_OPTIMIZE_POPCNT`

# Highlights:
- The drawings generated by the MolDraw2D objects are now significantly improved
  and can include simple atom and bond annotations (#2931 and #3010)
- An initial implementation of a modified scaffold network algorithm is now
  available (#2911)
- A few new descriptor/fingerprint types are available - BCUTs (#2957), Morse
  atom fingerprints (#1773), Coulomb matrices (#2993), and MHFP and SECFP
  fingerprints (#2643)
- There is a new, and greatly improved, version of the RDKit Cookbook (#2884)
- There is a new version (v3) of the ETKDG conformer generator along with
  optional new terms for handling small rings and macrocyles (http://doi.org/dqnh) (#2999)

## Deprecated code (to be removed in a future release):
- To improve API consistency of the exceptions in RDKit with the default ones in
  the STL, the several `message()` methods and `Invariant::getMessage()` in RDKit's
  exceptions are from now on deprecated in favor of `what()`. Both `message()` and
  `Invariant::getMessage()` will be removed in the next release.
- The old MolHash code should be considered deprecated. This release introduces
  a more flexible alternative. Specifically the following pieces will be removed in the next release:
  - The python functionality `rdkit.Chem.rdMolHash.GenerateMoleculeHashString()`
  - The C++ functionality directly present in the header file `GraphMol/MolHash/MolHash.h`

# Release_2019.09.1
(Changes relative to Release_2019.03.1)

## Important
- The atomic van der Waals radii used by the RDKit were corrected/updated in #2154.
  This leads to different results when generating conformations, molecular volumes,
  and molecular shapes. 

## Backwards incompatible changes
- See the note about atomic van der Waals radii above.
- As part of the enhancements to the MolDraw2D class, we changed the type of
  DrawColour from a tuple to be an actual struct. We also added a 4th element to
  capture alpha values. This should have no affect on Python code (the alpha
  value is optional when providing color tuples), but will require changes to C++
  and Java/C# code that is using DrawColour.
- When reading Mol blocks, atoms with the symbol "R" are now converted into
  queries that match any atom when doing a substructure search (analogous to "*"
  in SMARTS). The previous behavior was to only match other dummy atoms
- When loading SDF files using PandasTools.LoadSDF(), we now default to
  producing isomeric smiles in pandas tables.  To reproduce the original
  behavior, use isomericSmiles=False in the call to the function.
- The SMARTS generated by the RDKit no longer contains redundant wildcard
  queries. This means the SMARTS strings generated by this release will generally
  be different from that in previous releases, although the results produced by
  the queries should not change.
- The RGroupDecomposition code now removes Hs from output R groups by default.
  To restore the old behavior create an RGroupDecompositionParameters object and
  set removeHydrogensPostMatch to false.
- The default values for some of the new fingerprint generators have been changed so
  that they more closely resemble the original fingerprinting code. In
  particular most fingerprinters no longer do count simulation by default and
  the RDKit fingerprint now sets two bits per feature by default.
- The SMARTS generated for MCS results using the ringMatchesRingOnly or
  completeRingsOnly options now includes ring-membership queries.

## Highlights:
- The substructure matching code is now about 30% faster. This also improves the
  speed of reaction matching and the FMCS code. (#2500)
- A minimal JavaScript wrapper has been added as part of the core release. (#2444)
- It's now possible to get information about why molecule sanitization failed. (#2587)
- A flexible new molecular hashing scheme has been added. (#2636)

  - Eat our own dogfood, Clone is deprecated so use copy
 (github pull #2711 from bp-kelley)

## Deprecated code (to be removed in a future release):

- The old MolHash code should be considered deprecated. This release introduces
  a more flexible alternative. Specifically the following pieces will be removed in a future release:
  - The python functionality `rdkit.Chem.rdMolHash.GenerateMoleculeHashString()`
  - The C++ functionality directly present in the header file `GraphMol/MolHash/MolHash.h`


# Release_2019.03.1
(Changes relative to Release_2018.09.1)

## REALLY IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT
- As of this realease (2019.03.1) the RDKit no longer supports Python 2. Please
  read this rdkit-discuss post to learn what your options are if you need to
  keep using Python 2:
  https://www.mail-archive.com/rdkit-discuss@lists.sourceforge.net/msg08354.html

## Backwards incompatible changes
- The fix for github #2245 means that the default behavior of the MaxMinPicker
  is now truly random. If you would like to reproduce the previous behavior,
  provide a seed value of 42.
- The uncharging method in the MolStandardizer now attempts to generate
  canonical results for a given molecule. This may result in different output
  for some molecules.
  
## Highlights:
- There's now a Japanese translation of large parts of the RDKit documentation
- SGroup data can now be read from and written to Mol/SDF files
- The enhanced stereo handling has been improved: the information is now
  accessible from Python, EnumerateStereoisomers takes advantage of it, and it
  can be read from and written to CXSmiles

# Release_2018.09.1
(Changes relative to Release_2018.03.1)

## Deprecations
- As part of the changes and cleaning up done for #1836 many of the `#defines`
  used in the RDKit have been renamed.
    - `USE_BUILTIN_POPCOUNT` -> `RDK_OPTIMIZE_NATIVE`
    - `RDK_THREADSAFE_SSS` -> `RDK_BUILD_THREADSAFE_SSS`
    - `BUILD_COORDGEN_SUPPORT` -> `RDK_BUILD_COORDGEN_SUPPORT`
    - `BUILD_AVALON_SUPPORT` -> `RDK_BUILD_AVALON_SUPPORT`
    - `BUILD_INCHI_SUPPORT` -> `RDK_BUILD_INCHI_SUPPORT`
    - `BUILD_SLN_SUPPORT` -> `RDK_BUILD_SLN_SUPPORT`
    - `RDK_CAIRO_BUILD` -> `RDK_BUILD_CAIRO_SUPPORT`

## Documentation updates
We have moved to using Sphinx's autodoc to create the Python API documentation.
`epydoc`, the tool we used to use, is no longer actively developed and only supports
Python2. There will undoubtedly be problems associated with the change; if you notice
anything missing in the documetation or something that's really badly formatted,
please either let us know or submit a PR with a fix.

## Backwards incompatible changes
This release includes a set of changes to make the default arguments to common
functions less error prone (github #1679).
- GetAtomSmiles() now generates isomeric SMILES by default.
- The ringMatchesRingOnly option to the FindMCS() function now applies to
  atom-atom matches as well as bond-bond matches.
- The Python functions EmbedMolecule() and EmbedMultipleConfs() now use the
  ETKDG algorithm by default instead of standard distance geometry.

## Highlights:
- This release includes two contributions from the Google Summer of Code:
   - A new generalized fingerprint generator.
   - An integration/port of MolVS to the core RDKit.
  The API on both of these may change a bit with future releases.
- The rdkit.Chem.Draw module now includes functions for depicting fingerprint
  bits. Morgan and RDKit fingerprints are currently supported.

# Release_2018.03.1
(Changes relative to Release_2017.09.1)

## C++11 notes

Starting with this release, the RDKit core C++ code is written in modern C++;
for this release that means C++11. This means that the compilers used to build
it cannot be completely ancient. Here are the minimum tested versions:
- g++ v4.8: though note that the SLN parser code cannot be built with v4.8. It
  will automatically be disabled when this older compiler is used.
- clang v3.9: it may be that older versions of the compiler also work, but we
  haven't tested them.
- Visual Studio 2015: it may be that older versions of the compiler also work,
  but we haven't tested them.

## Backwards incompatible changes

This release includes a set of changes to make the default arguments to common
functions less error prone (github #1679).
- MolToSmiles() now generates isomeric SMILES by default.
- The embedding code now uses the ETKDG method by default.
- MolToMolBlock() will now by default generate a set of 2D coordinates for
  molecules when the includeStereo option is set to True. The changes are made
  to a copy of the molecule; the molecule itself will not be modified.
- The Mol file (and SDF) parser now determines atomic stereochemisty based on
  the 3D coordinates provided (if 3D coordinates are provided).
- The SMILES parser now supports CXSMILES by default (assuming that additional
  text that looks like CXSMILES extensions is there).

In every case the old behavior can be obtained by providing an optional argument
to the function(s) mentioned.

# Release_2017.09.1
(Changes relative to Release_2017.03.1)

## Important
- The fix for bug #1567 changes the way fragment SMILES are canonicalized.
  MolFragmentToSmiles() and canonicalizeFragment() will now often return
  different results
- The fix for bug #1604 changes the behavior of QueryAtom::setQuery(), which
  now deletes the current query before setting the new value. If you are using
  QueryAtom::setQuery() from C++ (or possibly Java), be sure that you are not
  also deleting that memory.

## Deprecated code (to be removed in a future release):
  - rdkit.VLib python module
  - SanitizeRxn parameters "ChemDrawRxnAdjustParams" has been renamed to
    "MatchOnlyAtRgroupsAdjustParams".  These settings did not reflect
    how integrations with SciQuest or the Perkin Elmer ELN behaved and
    were confusing to users (especially since they were not explicit)

## Removed code:

## Contrib updates:
  - added an implementation of the Gobbi Atom-Atom-Path (AAP) similarity
 (github pull #1015 from Richard-Hall)

## Other:

# Release_2016.03.1
(Changes relative to Release_2015.09.2)

## Important
In order to build the RDKit, it is now necessary to have at least v1.7 of numpy installed.

## Acknowledgements:
Note: The RDKit has the wonderful "problem" that there are a lot of
contributors and it's tough for me to capture them all to put together release
notes. I don't even know many of the contributors (which is *awesome!*)
The names here come largely from what I pull in an automated way from github.
In cases where there's no real name listed in github, I either guessed
or used just the github alias in quotes. If I got it wrong, please let me know!

## Highlights:
- Improvements to the build system: it's now much easier to build with InChI
  and/or Avalon support since cmake now knows how to fetch the appropriate
  source code for you. Building the PostgreSQL cartridge is now integrated into
  normal build process.
- Some improvements to molecule rendering and Jupyter notebook integration: The
  new `Draw.PrepareMolForDrawing()` function takes care of standard tasks like
  wedging bonds, kekulization, and adding chiral Hs. `Draw.MolsToGridImage()`
  can generate SVGs and uses the new molecular drawing code for PNGs when
  possible. The Jupyter notebook integration uses the new drawing code when
  possible.
- Error and warning messages from the C++ core can now be displayed in the
  Jupyter notebook

release, we will only support python 2.7 and python 3.4 and
higher. Python 2.6 has not been supported since October 2013. If you
believe that you are stuck with python 2.6 because of the version of
RHEL you are running, please read this post to learn about your
options:
http://www.curiousefficiency.org/posts/2015/04/stop-supporting-python26.html
  - The RDKit molecule objects (ROMol and RWMol) now require about 15%
less memory to store

   logP and MR values for some compounds.
 - The fix to Issue 254 (see below) will lead to changes in some
   descriptors and geometries for sulfur-containing compounds.
 - The fix to Issue 256 (see below) has changed the name of the
   optional argument to mol.GetNumAtoms from onlyHeavy to
   onlyExplicit. For compatibility reasons, Python code that uses
   explicitly uses onlyHeavy will still work, but it will generate
   warnings. This compatibility will be removed in a future release.

## Bug Fixes:
- The molecules that come from mergeQueryHs() now reset the RingInfo
  structure. (issue 245)
- The output from MurckoScaffold.MakeScaffoldGeneric no longer
  includes stereochemistry or explicit Hs. (issue 246)
- D and T atoms in CTABs now have their isotope information
  set. (issue 247)
- Some problems with ring finding in large, complex molecules have
  been fixed. (issue 249)
- The "rootedAtAtom" argument for FindAllSubgraphsOfLengthN is now
  handled properly. (issue 250)
- Bonds now have a SetProp() method available in Python. (issue 251)
- A number of problems with the Crippen atom parameters have been
  fixed. (issue 252)
- Ring closure digits are no longer repeated on the same atom in
  SMILES generated by the RDKit. (issue 253)
- Non-ring sulfur atoms adjacent to aromatic atoms are no longer set
  to be SP2 hybridized. This allows them to be stereogenic. (issue
  254)
- The combineMols() function now clears computed properties on the
  result molecule.
- A couple of problems with the pickling functions on big endian
  hardware were fixed.
- The molecule drawing code now uses isotope information
- Superscript/Subscript handling in the agg canvas has been improved.
- SKP lines in CTABS are now propertly handled. (Issue 255)
- The name of the optional argument to mol.GetNumAtoms has been
  changed from onlyHeavy to onlyExplicit. The method counts the number
  of atoms in the molecular graph, not the number of heavy
  atoms. These numbers happen to usually be the same (which is why
  this has taken so long to show up), but there are exceptions if Hs
  or dummy atoms are in the graph. (Issue 256)
- Unknown bonds in SMILES are now output using '~' instead of '?'. The
  SMILES parser now recognizes '~' as an "any bond" query. (Issue 257)
- Lines containing only white space in SDF property blocks are no
  longer treated as field separators.
- Transition metals and lanthanides no longer have default valences
  assigned.

## New Features:
- The RDKit now has a maximum common substructure (MCS) implementation
  contributed by Andrew Dalke. This is currently implemented in Python
  and is available as: from rdkit.Chem import MCS Documentation is
  available as a docstring for the function MCS.FindMCS and in the
  GettingStarted document.
- A few new functions have been added to rdkit.Chem.Draw:
  MolsToImage(), MolsToGridImage(), ReactionToImage()
- CalcMolFormula() now provides the option to include isotope
  information.
- The RDKit and Layered fingerprinters both now accept "fromAtoms"
  arguments that can be used to limit which atoms contribute to the
  fingerprint.
- Version information is now available in the Java wrapper.
- The descriptor NumRadicalElectrons is now available.
- The PyMol interface now supports a GetPNG() method which returns the
  current contents of the viewer window as an PIL Image object.
- Molecules (ROMol in C++, rdkit.Chem.Mol in Python) now have a
  getNumHeavyAtoms() method.
- Component-level grouping (parens) can be used in reaction SMARTS.

## New Java Wrapper Features:

Deprecated modules (to be removed in next release):
 - Support for older (pre9.1) postgresql versions.

Removed modules:
 - rdkit.Excel
 - the code in $RDBASE/Code/PgSQL/RDLib

   in a more useable manner from rdkit.Chem.Descriptors

## Other:
 - Similarity calculations on ExplicitBitVectors should now be much faster
 - Use of [Xa], [Xb], etc. for dummy atoms in SMILES is no longer
   possible. Use the "*" notation and either isotopes (i.e. [1*],

 - Initial work was done towards make the RDKit work on big endian
   hardware (mainly changes to the way pickles are handled)
 - Canonical SMILES generation is now substantially faster.

# Release_2011.12.1
(Changes relative to Release_2011.09.1)

## IMPORTANT
 - The functions for creating bit vector fingerprints using atom pairs
   and topological torsions have been changed. The new default
   behavior will return different fingerprints than previous RDKit
   versions. This affects usage from c++, python, and within the
   postgresql cartridge. See the "## Other" section below for more
   details.
 - Due to a bug fix in the parameter set, the MolLogP and MolMR
   descriptor calculators now return different values for some
   molecules. See the "## Bug Fixes" section below for more details.
 - To make storage more efficient, the size of the fingerprint
   used to store morgan fingerprints in the database cartridge
   has been changed from 1024 bits to 512 bits. If you update
   the cartridge version all morgan and featmorgan fingerprints
   and indices will need to be re-generated.

## Bug Fixes:
- molecules with polymeric S group information are now rejected by the
  Mol file parser. (Issue 3432136)
- A bad atom type definition and a bad smarts definition were fixed in
  $RDBASE/Data/Crippen.txt. This affects the values returned by the
  logp and MR calculators. (Issue 3433771)
- Unused atom-map numbers in reaction products now produce warnings
  instead of errors. (Issue 3434271)
- rdMolDescriptors.GetHashedAtomPairFingerprint() now works. (Issue

- ReplaceSubstructs() now copies input molecule conformations to the
  output molecule. (Issue 3453144)
- three-coordinate S and Se are now stereogenic (i.e. the
  stereochemistry of O=[S@](C)F is no longer ignored). (Issue 3453172)

## New Features:
- Integration with the new IPython graphical canvas has been
  added. For details see this wiki page:
http://code.google.com/p/rdkit/wiki/IPythonIntegration

- rdkit.WebUtils
- rdkit.Reports
- rdkit.mixins

## Other:
- Improvements to the SMARTS parser (Roger Sayle)
- The atom-pair and topological-torsion fingerprinting functions that
  return bit vectors now simulate counts by setting multiple bits in
  the fingerprint per atom-pair/torsion. The number of bits used is
  controlled by the nBitsPerEntry argument, which now defaults to 4.
  The new default behavior does a much better job of reproducing the
  similarities calculated using count-based fingerprints: 95% of
  calculated similarities are within 0.09 of the count-based value
  compared with 0.22 or 0.17 for torsions and atom-pairs previously.
  To get the old behavior, set nBitsPerEntry to 1.
- Optional support has been added for the Avalon Toolkit
(https://sourceforge.net/projects/avalontoolkit/) to provide an
alternate smiles canonicalization, fingerprint, and 2D coordination
generation algorithm.
- The SLN support can now be switched off using the cmake variable
RDK_BUILD_SLN_SUPPORT.
- There are now instructions for building the RDKit and the SWIG
wrappers in 64bit mode on windows.

# Release_2011.09.1
(Changes relative to Release_2011.06.1)

## IMPORTANT

   ring systems has been improved. (Issue 3185548)
 - Isotope information is now correctly saved when molecules are
   serialized (pickled). (Issue 3205280)
 - Generating SMILES for a molecule no longer changes the
   molecule. This fixes a round-trip bug with certain highly symmetric
   molecules read from SD files. (Issue 3228150)
 - Another bounds-matrix generation bug for highly (con)strained
   systems was fixed. (Issue 3238580)

   allowing the conformation to be transformed to be specified and
   other existing conformations to be preserved.
 - Calculations for most of the descriptors in rdkit.Chem.Lipinski and
   rdkit.Chem.MolSurf have been moved into C++. The python API is the
   same, but the calculations should be somewhat faster.

 - The Chem.ReplaceCore() function is now better suited for use
   in R-group decomposition.
 - The Morgan fingerprinting code can now return information about
   which atoms set particular bits.

   from conformations (if present). The function is also now available
   from Python
 - The path and subgraph finding code now takes an optional
   rootedAtAtom argument to allow only paths/subgraphs that start at a
   particular atom to be generated.

   new format is more compact.



# Release_2010.12.1
(Changes relative to Release_2010.09.1)

## IMPORTANT
 - Due to changes made to the fingerprinting code, RDKit and layered
   fingerprints generated with this release are not compatible with
   those from previous releases. For users of the database cartridge:
   you will need to re-generate RDKit fingerprint columns and any
   indices on molecule tables.

   as the atomic "molAtomMapNumber" property. (issue 3140494)
 - It's now possible to tell the RDKit to generate non-canonical
   SMILES via an optional argument to MolToSmiles. This is faster than
   generating canonical SMILES, but is primarity intended for
   debugging/testing. (issue 3140495)
 - The function GenerateDepictionMatching2DStructure() has been added
   to the rdkit.Chem.AllChem module to make generating

 - rdkit.Chem.AvailDescriptors : the same functionality is now available
   in a more useable manner from rdkit.Chem.Descriptors (see above).

Removed modules:

## Other:
 - RDKit support has been added to the Knime data mining and reporting
   tool. More information is available from the knime.org community
   site: http://tech.knime.org/community/rdkit
   Thanks to Thorsten, Bernd, Michael, and the rest of the crew at
   knime.com for making this possible.
 - RPMs to allow easy installation of the RDKit on Fedora/CentOS/RHEL
   and similar systems are now available. Thanks to Gianluca Sforna
   for doing this work.
 - The database cartridge now statically links the RDKit libraries.
   This should make installation easier.
 - The RDKit fingerprinter now by default sets 2 bits per hashed
   subgraph instead of 4. The old behavior can be regained by setting
   nBitsPerHash to 4.

# Release_2010.09.1
(Changes relative to Release_Q22010_1)

## IMPORTANT
 - Due to changes made to the layered fingerprinting code,
   fingerprints generated with this release are not compatible with
   fingerprints from earlier releases.
 - The default arguments to the Morgan fingerprinting code will yield
   fingerprints that are not backwards compatible.

## Acknowledgements:
 - Andrew Dalke, James Davidson, Paul Emsley, Peter Gedeck,
   Uwe Hoffmann, Christian Kramer, Markus Kossner, TJ O'Donnell,
   Gianluca Sforna, Nik Stiefl, Riccardo Vianello

## Bug Fixes:
 - A typo in the parameters for the Crippen clogp calculator was
   fixed. (issue 3057201)
 - some problems in the layered fingerprinting code were fixed. (issue
   3030388)
 - a bug in the ring-finding code that could lead to incorrect results
   or crashes in large molecules was fixed.  
 - the Murtagh clustering code should now execute correctly on recent
   versions of the MacOS.
 - some problems with the cairo canvas were fixed
 - a problem with matching non-default isotope SSS queries for molecules
   read in from CTABs was fixed (issue 3073163).
 - a problem with calculating AMW for molecules with non-default isotopes
   was fixed.

## New Features:
 - a PostgreSQL cartridge for similarity and substructure searching
   has been added to the RDKit distribution.
 - The Morgan fingerprinting code accepts additional arguments that
   control whether or not bond order and chirality are taken into
   account. By default chirality is ignored and the bond order is
   used. Another change with the MorganFPs is that ring information is
   now included by default.
 - 2D coordinates can now be generated for chemical reactions.
 - The functions IsMoleculeReactantOfReaction and
   IsMoleculeProductOfReaction have been added to the C++
   interface. From python these are methods of the ChemicalReaction
   class:
   rxn.IsMoleculeReactant and rxn.IsMoleculeProduct
 - The default bond length for depiction can now be changed.
 - FCFP-like fingerprints can now be generated with the Morgan
   fingerprinting code by starting with feature invariants.
 - The close() method has been added to MolWriters.
 - Morgan, atom-pair, and topological-torsion fingerprints can now
   also be calculated as bit vectors.
 - RDKit and layered fingerprints can now be generated using only
   linear paths.
 - the function findAllPathsOfLengthMtoN() was added

Deprecated modules (to be removed in next release):

Removed modules:
 - rdkit/qtGui
 - rdkit/RDToDo
 - Projects/SDView

## Other:
 - As of this release a new version numbering scheme is being used:
   YYYY.MM.minor. An example, this release was done in Sept. of 2010
   so it's v2010.09.1.
 - the RDBASE environment variable is no longer required. It will be
   used if set, but the code should work without it
 - The directory Contrib/M_Kossner contains two new contributions from
   Markus Kossner.
 - A change was made to the subgraph matching code that speeds up
   substructure searches involving repeated recursive queries.
 - the deprecated registerQuery argument has been removed from the
   substructure matching functions.
 - the empty header files AtomProps.h and BondProps.h have been
   removed.
 - in order to simplify the build process the test databases are now
   in svn
 - some python functions to calculate descriptors (i.e. pyMolWt,
   pyMolLogP, etc.) that have C++ equivalents have been removed to
   clean up the interface
 - the PIL canvas should no longer generate warnings
 - Thanks to the help of Gianluca Sforna and Riccardo Vianello, it is
   now much easier to package and distribute the RDKit.
 - the bjam-based build system has been removed.

# Release_Q22010_1
(Changes relative to Release_Q12010_1)

## IMPORTANT
 - There are a couple of refactoring changes that affect people using
   the RDKit from C++. Please look in the ## Other section below for a list.
 - If you are building the RDKit yourself, changes made in this
   release require that you use a reasonably up-to-date version of
   flex to build it. Please look in the ## Other section below for more
   information.

## Acknowledgements:
 - Andrew Dalke, James Davidson, Kirk DeLisle, Thomas Heller, Peter Gedeck,
   Greg Magoon, Noel O'Boyle, Nik Stiefl,  

## Bug Fixes:
 - The depictor no longer generates NaNs for some molecules on
   windows (issue 2995724)
 - [X] query features work correctly with chiral atoms. (issue
   3000399)
 - mols will no longer be deleted by python when atoms/bonds returned
   from mol.Get{Atom,Bond}WithIdx() are still active. (issue 3007178)
 - a problem with force-field construction for five-coordinate atoms
   was fixed. (issue 3009337)
 - double bonds to terminal atoms are no longer marked as "any" bonds
   when writing mol blocks. (issue 3009756)
 - a problem with stereochemistry of double bonds linking rings was
   fixed. (issue 3009836)
 - a problem with R/S assignment was fixed. (issue 3009911)
 - error and warning messages are now properly displayed when cmake
   builds are used on windows.
 - a canonicalization problem with double bonds incident onto aromatic
   rings was fixed. (issue 3018558)
 - a problem with embedding fused small ring systems was fixed.
   (issue 3019283)

## New Features:
 - RXN files can now be written. (issue 3011399)
 - reaction smarts can now be written.
 - v3000 RXN files can now be read. (issue 3009807)
 - better support for query information in mol blocks is present.
   (issue 2942501)
 - Depictions of reactions can now be generated.
 - Morgan fingerprints can now be calculated as bit vectors (as
   opposed to count vectors.
 - the method GetFeatureDefs() has been added to
   MolChemicalFeatureFactory
 - repeated recursive SMARTS queries in a single SMARTS will now be
   recognized and matched much faster.
 - the SMILES and SMARTS parsers can now be run safely in
   multi-threaded code.

Deprecated modules (to be removed in next release):
 - rdkit/qtGui
 - Projects/SDView

Removed modules:
 - SVD code: External/svdlibc External/svdpackc rdkit/PySVD
 - rdkit/Chem/CDXMLWriter.py

## Other:
 - The large scale changes in the handling of stereochemistry were
   made for this release. These should make the code more robust.
 - If you are building the RDKit yourself, changes made in this
   release require that you use a reasonably up-to-date version of
   flex to build it. This is likely to be a problem on Redhat, and
   redhat-derived systems. Specifically: if your version of flex is
   something like 2.5.4 (as opposed to something like 2.5.33, 2.5.34,
   etc.), you will need to get a newer version from
   http://flex.sourceforge.net in order to build the RDKit.

 - Changes only affecting C++ programmers:
   - The code for calculating topological-torsion and atom-pair
     fingerprints has been moved from $RDBASE/Code/GraphMol/Descriptors
     to $RDBASE/Code/GraphMol/Fingerprints.
   - The naming convention for methods of ExplicitBitVect and
     SparseBitVect have been changed to make it more consistent with
     the rest of the RDKit.
   - the bjam-based build system should be considered
     deprecated. This is the last release it will be actively
     maintained.


# Release_Q12010_1
(Changes relative to Release_Q42009_1)

## Acknowledgements:
 - Andrew Dalke, Jean-Marc Nuzillard, Noel O'Boyle, Gianluca Sforna,
   Nik Stiefl, Anna Vulpetti

## Bug Fixes
 - Substantial improvements were made to the SLN parser
 - A bad depiction case was fixed. (issue 2948402)
 - Hs added to planar carbons are no longer in the same plane as the
   other atoms. (issue 2951221)
 - Elements early in the periodic table (e.g. Mg, Na, etc.) no longer
   have their radical counts incorrectly assigned. (issue 2952255)
 - Some improvements were made to the v3k mol file parser. (issue
   2952272)
 - Double bonds with unspecified stereochemistry are now correctly
   flagged when output to mol files. (issue 2963522)
 - A segmentation fault that occurred when kekulizing modified
   molecules has been fixed. (issue 2983794)

## New Features
 - The MaxMin diversity picker can now be given a seed for the random
   number generator to ensure reproducible results.

## Other
 - the vflib source, which is no longer used, was removed from the
   External source tree. It's still available in svn at rev1323 or via
   this tarball:
   http://rdkit.svn.sourceforge.net/viewvc/rdkit/trunk/External/vflib-2.0.tar.gz?view=tar&pathrev=1323
 - the directory Contrib has been added to the RDKit distribution to
   house contributions that don't necessarily fit anywhere else. The
   first contribution here is a collection of scripts required to
   implement local-environment fingerprints contributed by Anna
   Vulpetti.
 - Some optimization work was done on the molecule initialization code:
   reading in molecules is now somewhat faster.
 - Some optimization work was done on the RDK and Layered fingerprinting code.

# Release_Q42009_1
(Changes relative to Release_Q32009_1)

## IMPORTANT
  - A bug fix in the SMARTS parser has changed the way atom-map
    numbers in Reaction SMARTS are parsed.
      Earlier versions of the RDKit required that atom maps be
      specified at the beginning of a complex atom query:
        [CH3:1,NH2]>>[*:1]O
      The corrected version only accepts this form:
        [CH3,NH2:1]>>[*:1]O
    This change may break existing SMARTS patterns.
  - A switch to using cmake as the build system instead of bjam has
    made the RDKit much easier to build.

## Acknowledgements
  - Andrew Dalke, Kirk DeLisle, David Hall, Markus Kossner, Adrian
    Schreyer, Nikolaus Stiefl, Jeremy Yang

## Bug Fixes
  - the SMARTS parser now correctly requires tha atom-map numbers be
    at the end of a complex atom query.
    (issue 1804420)
  - a bug in the way SMARTS matches are uniquified has been fixed
    (issue 2884178)

## New Features
  - The new SMARTS atomic query feature "x" (number of ring bonds) is
    now supported.
  - The proof-of-concept for a SWIG-based wrapper around the RDKit has
    been expanded a bit in functionality. Samples are now included for
    Java, C#, and Python.
  - Information about the current RDKit and boost versions is now
    available from C++ (file RDGeneral/versions.h) and Python
    (rdBase.rdkitVersion and rdBase.boostVersion)
  - The KNN code now supports weighted nearest-neighbors calculations
    with a radius cutoff.

## Other
  - The lapack dependency has been completely removed from the RDKit.
  - The supported build system for the RDKit is now cmake
    (http://www.cmake.org) instead of bjam. See the file INSTALL for
    the new installation instructions. Files for bjam are still
    included in the distribution but are deprecated and will be
    removed in a future version.


# Release_Q32009_1
(Changes relative to Release_Q22009_1)

## IMPORTANT
  - Due to bug fixes in the boost random-number generator, RDK
    fingerprints generated with boost 1.40 are not backwards
    compatible with those from earlier versions.

## Acknowledgements
  - Uwe Hoffmann, Nik Stiefl, Greg Magoon, Ari Gold-Parker,
    Akihiro Yokota, Kei Taneishi, Riccardo Vianello, Markus Kossner

  - the distance-geometry code should now generate less bad amide
    conformations. (issue 2819563)
  - the quality of distance-geometry embeddings for substituted- and
    fused-ring systems should be better.  

# Release_Q22009_1

  - support has been added for enabling and disabling logs
    (issue 2738020)

## Other
  - A demo has been added for using the MPI with the RDKit
    ($RDBASE/Code/Demos/RDKit/MPI).
  - Embedding code is now better at handling chiral structures and
    should produce results for molecules with atoms that don't have
    UFF parameters.
  - the UFF code is more robust w.r.t. missing parameters
  - GetHashedAtomPairFingerprint() returns SparseIntVect instead of
    ExplicitBitVect
  - the CTAB parser (used for mol files and SD files) is faster
  - extensive changes to the layered fingerprinting code;

    benchmarking data and scripts.
  - support for sqlalchemy has been added to $RDBASE/rdkit/Chem/MolDb
  - $RDBASE/Projects/DbCLI/SDSearch.py has been removed; use the
    CreateDb.py and SearchDb.py scripts in the same directory instead.
  - the BRICS code has been refactored  

# Release_Q12009_2
(Changes relative to Release_Q42008_1)

## IMPORTANT

 - The directory structure of the distribution has been changed in
   order to make installation of the RDKit python modules more
   straightforward. Specifically the directory $RDBASE/Python has been
   renamed to $RDBASE/rdkit and the Python code now expects that
   $RDBASE is in your PYTHONPATH. When importing RDKit Python modules,
   one should now do: "from rdkit import Chem" instead of "import
   Chem". Old code will continue to work if you also add $RDBASE/rdkit
   to your PYTHONPATH, but it is strongly suggested that you update
   your scripts to reflect the new organization.
 - For C++ programmers: There is a non-backwards compatible change in
   the way atoms and bonds are stored on molecules. See the *## Other*
   section for details.

## Acknowledgements
 - Kirk DeLisle, Noel O'Boyle, Andrew Dalke, Peter Gedeck, Armin Widmer

## Bug Fixes
 - Incorrect coordinates from mol2 files (issue 2727976)
 - Incorrect handling of 0s as ring closure digits (issues 2525792,
 and 2690982)
 - Incorrect handling of atoms with explicit Hs in reactions (issue 2540021)
 - SmilesMolSupplier.GetItemText() crashes (issue 2632960)
 - Incorrect handling of dot separations in reaction SMARTS (issue 2690530)
 - Bad charge lines in mol blocks for large molecules (issue 2692246)
 - Order dependence in AssignAtomChiralTagsFromStructure (issue 2705543)
 - Order dependence in the 2D pharmacophore code
 - the LayeredFingerprints now handle non-aromatic single ring bonds
   between aromatic atoms correctly.


## New Features
 - BRICS implementation
 - Morgan/circular fingerprints implementation
 - The 2D pharmacophore code now uses standard RDKit fdef files.
 - Atom parity information in CTABs now written and read. If present
   on reading, atom parity flags are stored in the atomic property
   "molParity".
 - An optional "fromAtoms" argument has been added to the atom pairs
   and topological torsion fingerprints. If this is provided, only atom
   pairs including the specified atoms, or torsions that either start
   or end at the specified atoms, will be included in the fingerprint.
 - Kekulization is now optional when generating CTABs. Since the MDL
   spec suggests that aromatic bonds not be used, this is primarily
   intended for debugging purposes.
 - the removeStereochemistry() (RemoveStereoChemistry() from Python)
   function has been added to remove all stereochemical information
   from a molecule.

## Other
 - The Qt3-based GUI functionality in $RDBASE/rdkit/qtGui and
   $RDBASE/Projects/SDView is deprecated. It should still work, but it
   will be removed in a future release. Please do not build anything
   new on this (very old and creaky) framework.
 - The function DaylightFingerprintMol() is now deprecated, use
   RDKFingerprintMol() instead.
 - For C++ programmers: The ROMol methods getAtomPMap() and
   getBondPMap() have been removed. The molecules themselves now support
   an operator[]() method that can be used to convert graph iterators
   (e.g. ROMol:edge_iterator, ROMol::vertex_iterator,
   ROMol::adjacency_iterator) to the corresponding Atoms and Bonds.
   New API for looping over an atom's bonds:
        ... molPtr is a const ROMol * ...
        ... atomPtr is a const Atom * ...
        ROMol::OEDGE_ITER beg,end;
        boost::tie(beg,end) = molPtr->getAtomBonds(atomPtr);
        while(beg!=end){
          const BOND_SPTR bond=(*molPtr)[*beg];
          ... do something with the Bond ...
          ++beg;
        }
  New API for looping over a molecule's atoms:
        ... mol is an ROMol ...
        ROMol::VERTEX_ITER atBegin,atEnd;
        boost::tie(atBegin,atEnd) = mol.getVertices();  
        while(atBegin!=atEnd){
          ATOM_SPTR at2=mol[*atBegin];
          ... do something with the Atom ...
          ++atBegin;
        }

# Release_Q42008_1
(Changes relative to Release_Q32008_1)

## IMPORTANT
 - A fix in the handling of stereochemistry in rings means that the
   SMILES generated with this release are different from those in
   previous releases. Note that the canonicalization algorithm does
   not work in cases of pure ring stereochemistry : the SMILES should
   be correct, but it is not canonical. Rings containing chiral
   centers should be fine.

 - incorrect parsing of atom-list queries with high-numbered atoms
   (issue 2413431)
 - MolOps::mergeQueryHs() crashing with non-query molecules. (issue
   2414779)

## Bug Fixes
 - A memory leak in the ToBase64 and FromBase64 wrapper functions was
   fixed.
 - The UFF atom typer has been made more permissive: it now will pick
   "close" atom types for things it does not recognize. (issue
   2094445)
 - The handling of molecules containing radicals has been greatly
   improved (issues 2091839, 2091890, 2093420)
 - Iterative (or secondary, or dependent) chirality is now supported,
   see this page for more information:
   http://code.google.com/p/rdkit/wiki/IterativeChirality
   (issue 1931470)
 - Isotope handling has been changed, this allows correct matching of
   SMARTS with specified isotopes. (issue 1968930)
 - Some problems with the MACCS key definitions have been
   fixed. (issue 2027446)
 - Molecules with multiple fragments can now be correctly
   embedded. (issue 1989539)
 - Adding multiple bonds between the same atoms in a molecule now
   produces an error. (issue 1993296)
 - The chemical reaction code now handles chiral atoms correctly in
   when applying reactions with no stereochem information
   provided. (issue 2050085)
 - A problem with single-atom cores in TemplateExpand.py has been
   fixed. (issue 2091304)  
 - A problem causing bicyclobutane containing molecules to not be
   embeddable has been fixed. (issue 2091864)
 - The default parameters for embedding are now molecule-size
   dependent. This should help with the embedding of large, and
   crowded molecules. (issue 2091974)
 - The codebase can now be built with boost 1.36. (issue 2071168)
 - A problem with serialization of bond directions was fixed.
   (issue 2113433)

## New Features
 - The RDKit can now be built under Darwin (Mac OS/X).
 - Tversky similarity can now be calculated. (request 2015633)
 - Many of the core datastructures now support equality comparison
   (operator==). (request 1997439)
 - Chirality information can now be assigned based on the 3D
   coordinates of a molecule using
   MolOps::assignChiralTypesFrom3D(). (request 1973062)
 - MolOps::getMolFrags() can now return a list of split molecules
   instead of just a list of atom ids. (request 1992648)
 - ROMol::getPropNames() now supports the includePrivate and
   includeComputed options. (request 2047386)


## Other
 - the pointers returned from Base64Encode/Decode are now allocated
   using new instead of malloc or calloc. the memory should be
   released with delete[].
 - the generation of invariants for chirality testing is now quite a
   bit faster; this results in faster parsing of molecules.
 - The use of C include files instead of their C++ replacements has
   been dramatically reduced.
 - The new (as of May2008) hashing algorithm for fingerprints is now
   the default in the python fingerprinting code
   (Chem.Fingerprints.FingerprintMols).
 - The functions MolOps::assignAtomChiralCodes() and
   MolOps::assignBondStereoCodes() are deprecated. Use
   MolOps::assignStereochemistry() instead.
 - The RDKit no longer uses the old numeric python library. It now
   uses numpy, which is actively supported.
 - By default Lapack++ is no longer used. The replacement is the boost
   numeric bindings: http://mathema.tician.de/software/boost-bindings.


# Release_May2008_1
(Changes relative to Release_Jan2008_1)

## IMPORTANT
 - A fix to the values of the parameters for the Crippen LogP
   calculator means that the values calculated with this version are
   not backwards compatible. Old values should be recalculated.
 - topological fingerprints generated with this version *may* not be
   compatible with those from earlier versions. Please read the note
   below in the "## Other" section.
 - Please read the point about dummy atoms in the "## New Features"
   section. It explains a change that affects backwards compatibility
   when dealing with dummy atoms.

 - Looping directly over a supplier no longer causes a crash (issue
   1928819)
 - a core leak in the smiles parser was fixed (issue 1929199)
 - Se and Te are now potential aromatic atoms (per the proposed
   OpenSmiles standard). (issue 1932365)
 - isotope information (and other atomic modifiers) are now correctly
   propagated by chemical reactions (issue 1934052)
 - triple bonds no longer contribute 2 electrons to the count for
   aromaticity (issue 1940646)
 - Two bugs connected with square brackets in SMILES were fixed
   (issues 1942220 and 1942657)

 - Bond.SetStereo() is no longer exposed to Python (issue 1944575)
 - A few typos in the parameter data for the Crippen logp calculator
   were fixed. Values calculated with this version should be assumed
   to not be backwards compatible with older versions (issue 1950302)
 - Isotope queries are now added correctly (if perhaps not optimally)
   to SMARTS.
 - some drawing-related bugs have been cleared up.

   causing incorrect stereochemistry in drawn structures was
   fixed. (issue 1965035)
 - A bug causing errors or crashes on Windows with [r<n>] queries was
   fixed. (issue 1968930)
 - A bug in the calculation of TPSA values in molecules that have Hs
   in the graph was fixed. (issue 1969745)

## New Features
 - Support for supplying dummy atoms as "[Du]", "[X]", "[Xa]", etc. is
   now considered deprecated. In this release a warning will be
   generated for these forms and in the next release the old form will
   generate errors. Note that the output of dummy atoms has also
   changed: the default output format is now "*", this means that the
   canonical SMILES for molecules containing dummies are no longer
   compatible with the canonical SMILES from previous releases.
   (feature request 186217)
 - Atom and bond query information is now serializable; i.e. query
   molecules can now be pickled and not lose the query
   information. (feature request 1756596)
 - Query features from mol files are now fully supported. (feature
   request 1756962)
 - Conformations now support a dimensionality flag. Dimensionality
   information is now read from mol blocks and TDT files. (feature request
   1906758)
 - Bulk Dice similarity functions have been added for IntSparseIntVect
   and LongSparseIntVect (feature request 1936450)
 - Exceptions are no longer thrown during molecule parsing. Failure in
   molecule parsing is indicated by returning None. Failure to *open* a
   file when reading a molecule throws BadFileExceptions (feature
   requests 1932875 and 1938303)
 - The various similarity functions for BitVects and SparseIntVects
   now take an optional returnDistance argument. If this is provided,
   the functions return the corresponding distance instead of
   similarity.
 - Some additional query information from Mol files is now translated
   when generating SMARTS. Additional queries now translated:
     - number of ring bonds
     - unsaturation queries
     - atom lists are handled better as well
   (feature request 1902466)
 - A new algorithm for generating the bits for topological
   fingerprints has been added. The new approach is a bit quicker and
   more robust than the old, but is not backwards compatible.
   Similarity trends are more or less conserved.
 - The molecule drawing code in Chem.Draw.MolDrawing has been modified
   so that it creates better drawings. A new option for drawing that
   uses the aggdraw graphics library has been added.
 - The RingInfo class supports two new methods: AtomRings() and
   BondRings() that return tuples of tuples with indices of the atoms
   or bonds that make up the molecule's rings.

## Other
 - Changes in the underlying boost random-number generator in version
   1.35 of the boost library may have broken backwards compatibility
   of 2D fingerprints generated using the old fingerprinter. It is
   strongly suggested that you regenerate any stored fingerprints (and
   switch to the new fingerprinter if possible). There is an explicit
   test for this in $RDBASE/Code/GraphMol/Fingerprints/test1.cpp
 - The unofficial and very obsolete version of John Torjo's v1
   boost::logging library that was included with the RDKit
   distribution is no longer used. The logging library has been
   replaced with the much less powerful and flexible approach of just
   sending things to stdout or stderr. If and when the logging library
   is accepted into Boost, it will be integrated.
 - The DbCLI tools (in $RDBASE/Projects/DbCLI) generate topological
   fingerprints using both the old and new algorithms (unless the
   --noOldFingerprints option is provided). The default search
   uses the newer fingerprint.
 - The directory $RDBASE/Data/SmartsLib contains a library of sample
   SMARTS contributed by Richard Lewis.


# Release_Jan2008_1
(Changes relative to Release_Aug2007_1)

## IMPORTANT
 - Bug fixes in the canonicalization algorithm have made it so that
   the canonical SMILES from this version are not compatible with
   those from older versions of the RDKit.
 - Please read the point about dummy atoms in the "## New Features"
   section. It explains a forthcoming change that will affect
   backwards compatibility when dealing with dummy atoms.
 - The build system has been completely changed. Makefiles and Visual
   Studio project files have been removed. See the "## Other" section for
   more info.

## Acknowledgements:
 - Adrian Schreyer uncovered and reported a number of the bugs fixed
   in this release.

## Bug Fixes
 - the Recap code no longer generates illegal fragments for
   highly-branched atoms. (issue 1801871)
 - the Recap code no longer breaks cyclic bonds to N
   (issue 1804418)
 - A bug in the kekulization of aromatic nitrogens has been fixed
   (issue 1811276)
 - Bugs in the Atom Type definitions for polar carbons and positive
   nitrogens in BaseFeatures.fdef have been fixed. (issue 1836242)
 - A crash in the sanitization of molecules that only have degree 4
   atoms has been fixed; it now generates an exception. The underlying
   problem with ring-finding in these systems is still present. (issue
   1836576)
 - Mol files for molecules that have more than 99 atoms or bonds are
   no longer incorrectly generated. (issue 1836615)
 - Problems with the sping PIL and PDF canvases have been cleared
   up. The PIL canvas still generates a lot of warnings, but the
   output is correct.
 - The query "rN" is now properly interpreted to be "atom whose
   smallest ring is of size N" in SMARTS queries. It was previously
   interpreted as "atom is in a ring of size N". (issue 1811276)
   This change required that the default feature definitions for
   aromaticity and lumped hydrophobes be updated.
 - The MolSuppliers (SDMolSupplier, TDTMolSupplier, SmilesMolSupplier)
   no longer fail when reading the last element. (issue 1874882)
 - A memory leak in the constructor of RWMols was fixed.
 - A problem causing rapid memory growth with Recap analysis was fixed.
   (issue 1880161)
 - The Recap reactions are no longer applied to charged Ns or Os
   (issue 1881803)
 - Charges, H counts, and isotope information can now be set in
   reactions. (issue 1882749)
 - The stereo codes from double bonds (used for tracking cis/trans)
   are now corrected when MolOps::removeHs is called. (issue 1894348)
 - Various small code cleanups and edge case fixes were done as a
   result of things discovered while getting the VC8 build working.

## New Features
 - The SparseIntVect class (used by the atom pairs and topological
   torsions) is now implemented in C++.
 - The package $RDKit/Python/Chem/MolDb has been added to help deal
   with molecular databases. (this was intended for the August release
   and overlooked)
 - The module $RDKit/Python/Chem/FastSDMolSupplier has been added to
   provide a fast (at the expense of memory consumption) class for
   working with SD files. (this was intended for the August release
   and overlooked)
 - A new directory $RDKit/Projects has been created to hold things
   that don't really fit in the existing directory structure.
 - The new project $RDKit/Projects/DbCLI has been added. This contains
   command-line scripts for populating molecular database and
   searching them using substructure or similarity.
 - The code for calculating some descriptors has been moved into C++
   in the new module Chem.rdMolDescriptors. The C++ implementation is
   considerably faster than the Python one and should be 100%
   backwards compatible.
 - The MaxMinPicker (in Code/SimDivPickers) supports two new options:
   1) the user can provide a set of initial picks and the algorithm
      will pick new items that are diverse w.r.t. to those
   2) the user can provide a function to calculate the distance matrix
      instead of calculating it in advance. This saves the N^2 step of
      calculating the distance matrix.
 - A new piece of code demo'ing the use of the RDKit to add chemical
   functionality to SQLite is in Code/Demos/sqlite. This will
   eventually move from Demos into Code/sqlite once some more
   functionality has been added and more testing is done.
 - The distance geometry embedding code now supports using random
   initial coordinates for atoms instead of using the eigenvalues of
   the distance matrix. The default behavior is still to use the
   eigenvalues of the distance matrix.
 - The function Recap.RecapDecompose now takes an optional argument
   where the user can specify the minimum size (in number of atoms)
   of a legal fragment. (feature request 180196)
 - Dummy atoms can be expressed using asterixes, per the Daylight spec.
   Dummy atoms are also now legal members of aromatic systems (e.g.
   c1cccc*1 is a legal molecule). Support for supplying dummy atoms
   as "[Du]", "[X]", "[Xa]", etc. is now considered deprecated. In
   the next release a warning will be generated for these forms and
   in the release after that the old form will generate errors. Note
   that the output of dummy atoms will also change: in the next release
   the default output format will be "*".
   (feature request 186217)
 - A proof of concept for doing a SWIG wrapper of RDKit functionality
   has been added in: $RDBASE/Code/Demos/SWIG/java_example. This isn't
   even remotely production-quality; it's intended to demonstrate that
   the wrapping works and isn't overly difficult.

## Other
 - The full set of tests is now easier to setup and run on new
   machines. (issue 1757265)
 - A new build system, using Boost.Build, has been put into place on
   both the windows and linux sides. The new system does much better
   dependency checking and handles machine-specific stuff a lot
   better. The new system has been tested using Visual Studio 2003,
   Visual Studio Express 2005, Ubuntu 7.10, and RHEL5.
 - The "Getting Started in Python" document has been expanded.
 - There's now an epydoc config file for building the python
   documentation ($RDBASE/Python/epydoc.config).

# Release_Aug2007_1
(Changes relative to Release_April2007_1)

## Bug Fixes
 - operators and SparseIntVects. (issue 1716736)
 - the Mol file parser now calculates cis/trans labels for double
   bonds where the two ends had the same substituents. (issue 1718794)
 - iterator interface to DiscreteValueVects and UniformGrid3D. (issue
   1719831)
 - improper removal of stereochemistry from ring atoms (issue
   1719053)
 - stereochemistry specifications and ring bonds.  (issue 1725068)
 - handling of aromatic bonds in template molecules for chemical
   reactions. (issue 1748846)
 - handling of unrecognized atom types in the descriptor calculation
   code. (issue 1749494)
 - ChemicalReactionException now exposed to Python. (issue 1749513)
 - some small problems in topological torsions and atom pairs

## New Features
 - The Atom Pairs and Topological Torsions code can now provide
   "explanations" of the codes. See $RDBASE/Python/Chem/AtomPairs for
   details.
 - The PointND class has been exposed to Python
 - The "Butina" clustering algorithm [JCICS 39:747-50 (1999)] is now
   available in $RDBase/Python/Ml/Cluster/Butina.py
 - A preliminary implementation of the subshape alignment algorithm is
   available.
 - The free version of MS Visual C++ is now supported.   
 - There is better support for queries in MDL mol files. (issue 1756962)
   Specifically: ring and chain bond queries; the not modifier for
   atom lists; R group labels.
 - An EditableMol class is now exposed to Python to allow molecules to
   be easily edited. (issue 1764162)
 - The RingInfo class is now exposed to Python.
 - The replaceSidechains and replaceCore functions have been added
   in the ChemTransforms library and are exposed to Python as
   Chem.ReplaceSidechains and Chem.ReplaceCore.
 - pickle support added to classes: PointND
 - atoms and bonds now support the HasQuery() and GetSmarts() methods
   from Python.   

## Other
 - Similarity scores can now be calculated from Python in bulk
   (i.e. calculating the similarity between one vector and a list of
   others). This can be substantially faster than calling the
   individual routines multiple times. The relevant functions are
   BulkTanimotoSimilarity, BulkDiceSimilarity, etc.
 - The calculation of AtomPairs and TopologicalTorsions fingerprints
   is now a lot more efficient.
 - Optimization of the Dice metric implementation for SparseIntVects
 - The Visual Studio build files have been moved to the directories
   $RDBASE/Code/Build.VC71 and $RDBASE/Code/Build.VC80. This allows
   simultaneous support of both versions of the system and cleans up
   the source trees a bit.
 - Boost version 1.34 is now supported (testing has been done on 1.34 and 1.34.1).
 - Updates to the "Getting Started" documentation.

# Release_April2007_1
(Changes relative to Release_Jan2007_1)

## Bug Fixes
 - handing of isotope information in SMILES has been fixed
 - "implicit" hydrogens are now added to charged atoms explicitly when
   writing SMILES. (issue 1670149)
 - the 2D->3D code no longer generates non-planar conjugated 4-rings
   (e.g. C1=CC=C1). (issue 1653802)
 - removing explicit hydrogens no longer produces incorrect smiles
   (issue 1694023)
 - bit indices and signature lengths in the AtomPairs code no longer
   being calculated incorrectly. *NOTE* this changes the bits that are
   set, so if you have existing signatures, they will need to be
   regenerated.
 - Fixed a bug causing MolSuppliers to generate incorrect length
   information when a combination of random access and iterator
   interfaces are used. (issue 1702647)
 - Fixed a bug leading to incorrect line numbers in error messages
   from the SDMolSuppler. (issue 1695221)

## New Features
 - chemical reactions are now supported
 - there is a new entry point into the 2D depictor code,
   compute2DCoordsMimicDistMat(), that attempts to generate 2D
   depictions that are similar to the structure described by the
   distance matrix. There's also a shorthand approach for calling this
   to mimic a 3D structure available as:
   AllChem.GenerateDepictionMatching3DStructure()
 - DiscreteValueVect and UniformGrid3D now support the binary
   operators |, &, +, and -.
 - a reader/writer for TPL files has been added.
 - support has been added for MolCatalogs: hierarchical catalogs that
   can store complete molecules.
 - the protrude distance metric for shapes has been added
 - pickle support added to classes: UniformGrid, DiscreteValueVect,
   Point
 - added the class DataStructs/SparseIntVect to improve performance
   and clarity of the AtomPairs code

## Other
 - the non-GUI code now supports python2.5; the GUI code may work with
   python2.5, but that has not been tested
 - the Mol and SD file parsers have been sped up quite a bit.
 - the "Crippen" descriptors are now calculated somewhat faster.
 - in-code documentation updates
 - new documentation for beginners in $RDBASE/Docs/Book

# Release_Jan2007_1

## Bug Fixes
  - zero-atom molecules now trigger an exception
  - dummy atoms are no longer labelled 'Xe'
  - core leak in the mol file writer fixed
  - mol files with multiple charge lines are now correctly parsed
  - a workaround was installed to prevent crashes in the regression
    tests on Windows when using the newest VC++ v7 series compiler.
    (http://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=1607290&group_id=160139&atid=814650)
  - chirality perception (which requires partial sanitization) is no
    longer done by the MolFileParser when sanitization is switched
    off.
  - Two potential memory corruption problems were fixed (rev's 150 and
    151).

## New Features
  - optional use of chirality in substructure searches
  - MolWriters can now all take a stream as an argument
  - Chiral terms can now be included in the DistanceGeometry
    embedding.

## Other
  - $RDBASE/Code/Demos/RDKit/BinaryIO is a demonstration of using
    boost IOStreams and the ROMol pickling mechanism to generate
    highly compressed, random-access files of molecules.
  - the Point code has been refactored
