    • "Chemaxon Reactor" component can now skip errors

    • Error reporting was further improved. Error log always present at a default location.

    • "Show ChemAxon Environment" component improved (displays info in Notepad).

    Version 1.4, November 24, 2008

    • "LibMCS Clustering" component added

    • "Molecule to IUPAC Name" component added

    • "Molecule from IUPAC Name" component added

    • "ChemAxon Reactor" component:

      • New options added:
        • Synthesis Code generation
        • Unambiguous only (single) mode
        • Output reaction mapping
        • Options to ignore 3 types of reaction rules
      • Bugs fixed:
        • reaction output always contained all products
        • premature termination with "No Server Process" message for large input sets
    • Utility protocol added for displaying ChemAxon software properties

    Version 1.3.1, October 22, 2008

    • Bugfix: ChemAxon Reactor only returned the first set of products for a given pair of reactants resulting in fewer products in certain cases.
    • Bugfix: ChemAxon Calculator threw exception for inconsistent input structures in some cases (instead of just adding an error tag, and letting processing go on).

    Version 1.3, July 11, 2008

    • Chemical Terms Calculator component added

    • New error reporting system: more informative error text, ability to write detailed error log to file if CHEMAXON_PP_LOG_DIR environment variable set.

    • Collection recompiled for Marvin / JChem 5.1 compatibility (while still maintaining JChem 3.2 / Marvin 4.1.2 backwards compatibility)

    Version 1.2, March 5, 2008

    • ChemAxon Reactor component added

    • ChemAxon Standardize component upgraded:

      • more simple actions (checkboxes)
      • also accepts configuration string and configuration file for advanced tasks
    • JChem Base Insert:

      • Duplicate filtering option (using Pass and Fail ports)
      • Returns cd_id (primary key) values
      • Two input modes:
        • read structure source from a specified property
        • if property not specified uses PP input molecule
      • Insert into additional data fields (only for string column types yet)
    • JChemSearch

      • Several search options were added
      • Easier protocol integration and better performance due to concentrated functionality
    • Create JChem Base Table component added

    • Drop JChem Base Table component added

    • General documentation upgrade of most components
