Added support for DNA/RNA ribbon style visualization
Added support for displaying and controlling alternate residue conformations (turn on ALL flavor when reading PDB files to enable this) as well as a number of coloring schemes associated with alternate residues
2D depiction in 3D display is now selectable
Add object-type specific tool buttons to the bottom display which provide context sensitive operations such as coloring and style options.
Added the ability to import all of OpenEye’s Python toolkits for use within VIDA, provided that the user has a license for those toolkits.

Added the following command line arguments:
-e - Runs the associated file through the Python interpreter and populates the sys.argv variable with the remaining command line arguments
-eonview - Loads the associated files and processes them using the built in EON view
-fredview - Loads the associated files and processes them using the built in FRED view
-rocsview - Loads the associated files and processes them using the built in ROCS view
-import - Loads the associated files and immediately launches the spreadsheet import dialog
