Release of free quantum chemistry program: Dalton

 We are happy to announce the release of the Dalton quantum chemistry
 program, Release 1.0 (1997) to the computational chemistry/physics
 community. Dalton is a complete, powerful quantum chemistry program
 for the calculation of molecular properties with SCF, MP2 or MCSCF
 wave functions. The  strengths of the program are mainly in the areas
 of magnetic and (frequency-dependent) electric properties, and for
 studies of molecular potential energy surfaces, both for static and
 dynamical investigations, as well as stable algorithms for converging
 large MCSCF wave functions (also excited states).
 The program is distributed freely to all academic users, although we
 require all users to sign a copyright and license agreement.
 For more complete information on how to obtain a copy of the program,
 more information about what the program can and can not do, please
 check out our homepage at, or send

 I don't know what the computer language of the year 2000 will look like, but
 I know it will be called FORTRAN.
