Developer Preview Release Soon

Hey everyone,

We're going to be pushing an update to the developer preview soon with the following fixes and features:

General:
* Added the Pin Tool - this allows players to have greater control over where the changes to the protein backbone are rooted. To access, go to the view options and check 'Show backbone pins' (off by default, and not shown when 'advanced gui' isn't enabled). A pin will appear over each piece of protein representing where the piece is rooted. Left click and drag to move it, right click to keep the piece from moving. You can find a quick demonstration here.
* Added additional info to Foldit's crash reporting system to better track down bugs.
* The Ideal loops gallery has been removed from the RamaMapPanel. The Rama map also now shouldn't take up processing resources when it not visible.

Bug Fixes:
* Sound has been re-enabled.
* Fixed some small memory leaks.
* Improved performance for several visualizations.
* Various fixes and improvements for drug-design related tools and scoring.

As a final note: over the next few weeks we are planning to test out some experimental features in the intro puzzles. You might notice that new or different features are available in some of these puzzles. This should not affect the science puzzles. If you are an instructor using Foldit and would like to have the standard features for your class, please contact us.
