The Amber development team is pleased to announce the release of AmberTools15.
This is a significant update to AmberTools: http://ambermd.org/#AmberTools.

Among the new features:

* New generalized Born solvation parameters for nucleic acids
* New ("OPC") explicit water model
* New parameters for monatomic ions
* Generation of an API for sander and mdgx, allowing their functionality to
  be accessed by third-party programs
* Support for implicit membrane models in PB and FEW (free energy workbench)
* Major updates and extensions to the cpptraj program for trajectory analysis
* Improved workflow for system preparation and validation

Please note:

If you already have AmberTools14, you do not need to download anything.
Simply type "./update_amber.py --upgrade" in your AMBERHOME directory.
(Follow the instructions: you will need to type this twice.) You
then need to re-run the configure script and re-compile.

If you are a new user, click on the "Download AmberTools15" link at

(Special shout-out to Jason Swails and Scott Brozell for help in preparing
