ANN: Cinfony 1.0 released

Cinfony presents a common API to several cheminformatics toolkits. It uses the Python programming language, and builds on top of OpenBabel, RDKit, the CDK, and cheminformatics webservices.

Cinfony 1.0 is now available for download.

The two major additions in this release are support for using OpenBabel from IronPython (the ironable module), and webel - a cheminformatics toolkit that uses webservices (read more about this here).

As usual, Cinfony has been updated to use the latest stable releases of each toolkit: OpenBabel 2.2.3, CDK 1.2.5 and RDKit Q4_2009.

Thanks to Fredrik Wallner, Tom Sheldon and Cedric Moretti for reporting bugs.

Feedback, both positive and negative, is very much appreciated - I want to make Cinfony a useful toolkit for the community. That means you.
