 The Theoretical Biophysics Group at the University of Illinois is
 proud to announce the public release of a new version of NAMD, a
 parallel, object-oriented molecular dynamics code designed for
 high-performance simulation of large biomolecular systems.  NAMD is
 distributed free of charge and includes source code.  NAMD development
 is supported by the NIH National Center for Research Resources.
 NAMD 2.3b1 has several advantages over NAMD 2.2:
 - The new psfgen tool for building PSF structure files.
 - Simpler to run on a single workstation.  (No more rsh!)
 - New ports to the Compaq AlphaServer SC and Scyld Beowulf.
 NAMD is available from
 The Theoretical Biophysics group encourages NAMD users to be closely
 involved in the development process through reporting bugs, contributing
 fixes, periodical surveys and via other means.  Questions or comments
 may be directed to namd.,at,
 We are eager to hear from you, and thank you for using our software!
