Amber 14.5? 2 years from now it can be Amber 16.7? Amber
84317ac3609010bb08ccfeb2893c72a3 (sum of the md5sums of
AmberTools15.tar.bz2 and Amber14.tar.bz2)? [1] :)

Personally I prefer Amber 15. AmberTools has all of the functionality
of Amber, just not its performance. And it isn't like we're treating
Amber 14 as a "bugfix-only" release right now -- it has a lot more
functionality now than it did last April. But I see the case for this
causing confusion.

All the best,

[1] Just a demo. This is the sum of AmberTools14.tar.bz2 and
Amber14.tar.bz2 for now.
