Hello again,

A number of minor test failures and a couple more significant bugs have
been fixed since the last release candidate. So I've created a new one
that you can download here:


Same general requests as last time: please test as much as you can. I'm
hoping that we are nearing the final revisions, so it would be
especially helpful if more people would download and test the code as
well as report the results on the Wiki.

The more people we can get to run the tests, the better our final
version should be.

Manual improvements (even just reports of parts that are unclear or
misleading) are also appreciated (but please do not document stuff that
will not be part of AmberTools 15 yet).
