Description :
Open Babel is a free, open-source version of the Babel chemistry file
translation program. Open Babel is a project designed to pick up where
Babel left off, as a cross-platform program and library designed to
interconvert between many file formats used in molecular modeling,
computational chemistry, and many related areas.

This package contains the command-line utility, which is intended to
be used as a replacement for the original babel program, to translate
between various chemical file formats as well as a wide variety of
utilities to foster development of other open source scientific

Update Information:

These updates to OpenBabel and Avogadro fix 4 regressions resulting from the upgrade to OpenBabel 2.3.0 during Fedora 15 development:
* The plugin directory location was set incorrectly in OpenBabel.
* Due to a stricter API in OpenBabel 2.3.0, the obenergy command-line tool shipped with OpenBabel was unable to list the supported forcefield plugins.
* Due to the same stricter API, Avogadro's forcefield extension was not working.
* Due to the same stricter API, Avogadro's builtin autooptimization tool was not working.

  [ 1 ] Bug #680292 - Molecular mechanics not supported
