Hi all,

As is inevitable with any new software, I've received reports of 
installation problems. For those affected, please accept my apologies. 
Known issues and their resolution are below - if you run into any 
others, please do let me know.

- Users of RedHat/CentOS 7 will have encountered an error something like 
the following:
ImportError: /lib64/libstdc++.so.6: version `GLIBCXX_3.4.20' not found 
(required by 

I've uploaded an updated, RedHat 7-compatible build of ChimeraX-Clipper. 
Please do try reinstalling now.

- If you encounter a UnicodeDecode error on installation of ISOLDE 
and/or a KeyError: "ChimeraX_Clipper" on starting ChimeraX, these are 
issues with the ChimeraX 0.8 release itself. Please see 
https://isolde.cimr.cam.ac.uk/faq/#installation on how to rectify them.

Best regards,
