Upcoming tools

Dear foldit community,

We are currently in the progressing of making several significant changes that should be implemented shortly.

1. Rebuild tool, which searches for the best phi/psi angles, as opposed to the lowest energy. This is very useful in conjunction with the rubber band.

2. Increased precision in the lock tool, users will be able to lock individual amino acids.

3. The home key will center the screen.

4. A new gui interface featuring a pi menu, to be used in  conjunction with the rebuild tool.
