Dear All,

We inform you that anew release**of Graphite-LifeExplorer (formerly 
MicroMégas) is available at:**http://www.loria.fr/~shornus/FFG/gle.html 

This free software (running on Linux, Windows and Mac OSX) lets you 
model in 3D assemblies of proteins and DNA. Its main feature is the 
capability to create 3D models of DNA in a highly intuitive manner.

This new release includes the main following improvements:

  * A command Write PDB has been added. This is useful for preserving
    the spatial relationships between proteins in the scene which can
    thus be completely exported in professional packages like Blender,
    Maya, C4D via ePMV, Molecular Maya or BioBlender.

  * Ambient occlusion rendering has been improved for the atomic DNA

  * The full change-list is at:
