ROCS v3.2.2 released


ROCS is a shape-based superposition method. Molecules are aligned by a solid-body optimization process that maximizes the overlap volume between them. Volume overlap in this context is not the hard-sphere overlap volume, but rather a Gaussian-based overlap parameterized to reproduce hard-sphere volumes. ROCS uses only the heavy atoms of a ligand, hydrogens are ignored.

ROCS is built on top of the OpenEye Toolkits v2017.Feb libraries to ensure that ROCS and the ancillary programs are taking advantage of state-of-the-art improvements in the underlying programming libraries. This version of ROCS fixes a bug that prevented molecule streaming using pipes and named pipes on Linux and OS X systems. ROCS now accepts molecule streams or named pipes as database files.

Support for Mac OS X 10.10, 10.11, and MacOS X Sierra 10.12 has been added. Mac OS X 10.8 and 10.9 are no longer supported.
