The PLUMED Developers Team is proud to announce that the NEW version
of PLUMED 1.1.0 is available at

PLUMED is a plugin for free-energy calculations in molecular systems
that can be interfaced, through a simple patch procedure, with some of
the most popular classical molecular dynamics codes.

With PLUMED, the user can perform several type of calculations:

- Metadynamics with a large variety of order parameters;
- Combined parallel tempering and metadynamics;
- Bias-exchange metadynamics;
- Umbrella sampling;
- Steered MD.

In this NEW release:

- Added support to ACEMD 1.1, NAMD 2.7b1, AMBER 10, DL POLY 2.20 and
GROMACS 4.0.5.
- PLUMED is now compatible with the domain-decomposition
   parallelization of GROMACS4
- The bias can be interpolated using cubic splines on a grid
- Sum over hills is parallelized on GROMACS and DL POLY
- More flexibility in the application of PBC to collective variable
- Redesigned parallel tempering-metadynamics code
- Redesigned parser and patching system, with more error checking
- New collective variables: Electrostatic potential felt by a atom or
group of atoms,
   Puckering variables (thanks to Marcello Sega).
