I've using Fedora as my main distro for a while now (FC 3) and here in
Brazil, where I study Chemical Engineering, I started to use the
excellent XDrawChem software, for drawing chemical structures and
diagrams of reactions. I discovered, however, that the development of
the program is freezed since November of 2005 [1] and the activities
in the discutions lists had ceased a long time ago.
The future of this software seems uncertain and, until this point,
poor promising, since improvements are not being made and it's
outdated in comparison of what expect from a system that cares about
constant evolution.
After some research and tests, I found the BkChem [2], that it is
similar in functions, but it's uninterruptedly being developed and
that, in fact, it had shown better results compared to the XdrawChem
could obtain at the moment. The structures are more clear, the methods
of drawing more refined and the plugins and tools already are compared
with the ones that the XDrawChem had. The BkChem is distribuited under
GPL and seems to be a good (and promising) substitute to the deceased

Thanks for showing an interest!

Hi, Ignacio
I'm not shure to have the necessary skills to do that... =(

If you're willing to learn, I'm sure there are some seasoned Fedora
contributors that will help you (myself included). Why don't you try
creating a package of BkChem and submitting it for review?


If you're willing to learn and invest some time into this I'm more then happy to show you the ropes.
