WebMO is continually enhancing its software products by adding new capabilities, expanding compatibililty, and providing support and resources for our userbase. Our latest changes follow!
WebMO Version 20 is Released!
New or updated features in WebMO 20 include:
- Interactive spectra (IR, Raman, and NMR) and plots (optimization, coordinate scans)
- First-order splitting of proton NMR spectra
- Built-in extended Huckel, symmetry, and mechanics calculations included with WebMO Basic
- Enhanced job viewing: right-click for separate tab, sortable and filterable data tables
- Electron Difference plots from NTO's
- Integrated Python programming environment via Jupyter notebooks
- Support for TeraChem, Psi 1.3, and Q-Chem 5.3
- Support for installation on Google Cloud Platform or Amazon Web Services
- Numerous usability and compatibility enhancements
There have been no price increases to WebMO software since it was first commercially released in 2003. But our development and support expenses have increased markedly since then. So:
- Order before September 1 to avoid an upcoming 20% price increase
WebMO in the Cloud
WebMO can be installed and run in the Cloud for as little as $1/day! Furthermore, one doesn't pay for a cloud instance when it is not running. This makes WebMO in the Cloud ideal for instructional use, e.g., for a computational chemistry lab that might run for only 2 weeks each year.
WebMO on Windows
The traditional installation of WebMO Basic/Pro on Windows as a native process will be deprecated in WebMO 21. Starting with WebMO 20, Windows is being supported through the Windows Subsystem for Linux (part of Windows 10). This allows for support of WebMO Basic/Pro/Enterprise, a much wider choice of computational engines, and no need to install third-party Perl and Apache within Windows.
See the new instructions for installing WebMO using Windows Subsystem for Linux.
WebMO Online Workshop
The Computational Chemistry for Chemistry Educators Workshop (June 1-10) is moving online this summer! These workshops are a great way to learn about computational chemistry, incorporate computational chemistry into the undergraduate curriculum, and develop remote learning exercises for your students. See our Workshop list for details. Spots are still available!
