I am considering to improve some antechamber programs a little bit. It may take up to two weeks. When will we release the update?

Hi everyone:

I'm trying to figure a good time to release an update (to version 1.1) of
AmberTools. There were a number of glitches (esp. missing force field files)
in version 1.0, and we've been through fixing system-dependent glitches and
adding some new functionality. Finally, there have been some big changes to
sleap, which is now out in the "wild" for the first time.

I want to balance the convenience to users of having a more up-to-date
distribution with the downside of forcing people to download a 50 MByte file
and re-compile. (And many people will download whether they need to or not.)
So, I want to find a good time to pause and construct a new tarfile.

Anyone can comment here, but the key people (Tom, Wei, Junmei, Scott, etc.)
should see if they have fixes or additions that are nearly complete (and hence
I should wait), or if they have suggestions here. [Please reply one way or
the other--don't just be silent.]
