Congratulations on another AMBER release!

I was pleased to see that AMBER now supports netcdf formatted trajectory

I would like to add netcdf trajectory format support to UCSF Chimera, so
a pointer to the binary file format documentation would be very useful.
I didn't see it in the manual.

Have you guys given thought to using netcdf or HDF5 for prmtop files as
well as trajectories? This would eliminate the need for custom
parsers of the prmtop file format, and would produce much smaller prmtop
