« on: July 19, 2016, 04:06:27 pm »
Dear Turbomole users,

Turbomole version 7.1 and TmoleX 4.2 have been released.

Release Notes of Turbomole 7.1

  • New features:
    • DFT calculations for periodic systems (module riper) [1]
      • Analytic gradients now allow geometry optimization
      • ECPs are available for energy and gradient calculations
      • fractional occupation and smearing for metals
      • band structure plots and visualization of the density
      • DFT-D3 dispersion correction for energies and gradients

    • RI-RPA gradients for unrestricted calculations (rirpa) [2]
    • genetic algorithm for global structure optimization (see DoDo section in the manual) [3]
    • COSMO isorad analytic gradients (rdgrad/grad)

  • Efficiency:
    • faster Davidson algorithm for TDDFT [4]
         Nonorthonormal Krylov space methods in combination with RI methods
         yielding 2-5 fold speedups in (TD)HF and hybrid (TD)DFT
         response calculations. 
    • OpenMP/MPI parallel version of 2nd analytic derivatives (aoforce) 
    • pob-TZVP basis set added for periodic boundary condition RI-DFT. [5] 

  • Usability:
    • New scripts and tools: 
      • MD postprocessing tools for internal coordinates and rotational constants (log2int, log2rc)
      • tm2ezspec - create input for ezspectrum (Franck-Condon factors, Krylov group: )
      • panama - generate input for visualization of unrelaxed difference densities from escf output
      • IBO (intrinsic bond orbital) analysis (proper)

    • TmoleX 4.2: 
      • support of periodic boundary condition RI-DFT calculations 
      • visualization of band structures 
      • easier generation of user-defined building blocks in molecular builder 
      • generation of combinatorial libraries by automatic permutation of substitutives
