We're happy to announce that Nano-Hive version 1.2.0 Beta 1 for win32-x86 is now
available for download. *nix distros will be made available in the coming weeks.
The main feature of this beta release is that Nano-Hive is now fully
distributable across computing networks (DC). Note that this release is not the
@home-style DC client - that client, based on the BOINC
(http://boinc.berkeley.edu/) platform, will be made available early 2006 - this
release is mainly for dedicated DC networks.
Other features of this release include:
SocketsPIC_Control - This Distributed PIC Control plugin controls slave
Nano-Hive instances via sockets, and transfers work units to/from them via
FTP, or NFS.
AIREBO - This Physical Interaction plugin employs the Adaptive
Intermolecular Reactive Empirical Bond Order (AIREBO) potential is an
extension of the REBO potential (used by the REBO_MBM plugin) that adds
non-bonded intermolecular interactions, and four-body torsional interaction.
nanorexMMP_ImportExport - This Data Import/Export plugin handles
file format. Along with this, the mmpShaft atom set type was introduced,
allowing nE-1 users to easily specify atom sets for use with Nano-Hive.
Added linear force and rotary force activators to the pathing system.
These new activators provide a more realistic way to activate molecular
machines than the original constant velocity pathing mechanism (which still
has great value and still exists.)
Added the BoxedSet simulation specification atom set descriptor for use in
pathing atoms and molecules. With this descriptor, the user can simply
specify two opposite points of a box and all the atoms inside become an atom
