Chemtool is an open source and small graphical software written in GTK+ and designed to be used for drawing chemical structures under X11, on Linux and UNIX-like operating systems.
Thanks to the transfig utility created by Brian Smith, Chemtool is able to export files in EPS and PicTeX formats, as well as to support PostScript printing.
Also part of the Chemtool software, is XFig, which can be used for enhancing the output of Chemtool, and to easily create 2D diagrams and schematics.
Chemtool is comprised of numerous bond types, including wedge-shaped bond, double bond, centered double bond, triple bond, dashed wedge-shaped bond, wavy line, dashed wide line, half arrow, wide bond, and a quadruple bond.
What is new in this release:
- This version fixes several bugs exposed by recent gcc toolchains, including a crash on startup on Fedora16 and failure to include translations or to build at all.
- Filenames with embedded spaces are now supported.
- A new export mode for the Asymptote package was added.
