Hi friends,

We have finally finished all the merging, polishing, and testing of  
version 3.3, and there is now a new release-3-3-patches branch in CVS.

Considering it was quite a while since 3.2.1 there might be a few  
rough edges, so to give you a chance to report bugs I've built a  
"release candidate", available at


In particular, we have not been able to test/compile this release on  
IRIX, Solaris, or OSF, so if you are using any of those platforms it  
is a particularly good idea to report errors now to have it working  
in 3.3-final!

To improve the feedback and avoid missing bug reports we also have  
our own brand new Bugzilla bugtracker installed at


You can still report bugs on the mailing list, but it is probably  
just as fast to generate a bugreport, and then you can follow the  
confirmation/resolution/closing of the bug online, and get  
notification when something changes.

And, just to give you some incitement for testing: Release 3.3 has  
full support for TIP4P accelerated loops, x86-64 and EM64T 64-bit  
assembly loops (recently re-tuned to use all register), and PME free  
energy - just to mention a few features.
