              • Molecules are no longer checked by MarvinSketch whether the "Absolute Stereo (CHIRAL)" flag can be added to them.

              • Drawing wedge bonds on a 3D canvas has been disabled. These bond types are active only when the canvas is in 2D mode.

            • MarvinView GUI

              • "Save image" option has been added to the contextual menu of MarvinView

            • MarvinSpace GUI

            • Import/Export

              • SMILES/SMARTS

                • SMILES import handles CACTVS-type representation of coordinate bonds ('|' character). Please note that the export does not handle it.

              • Sequences, FASTA

                • Terminal H and OH are added to nucleic acids by nucleic acid import.

              • Name to Structure (n2s)

                • CAS Registry Numbers can be converted to structures even when they contain coordinate bonds, such as 56-24-6.

                • Conversion of nitrogen-substituted acetohydrazides is now supported.

                • Elements with isotopes, such as (14)C, are converted in name to structure by default, and, optionally, they can be converted with document to structure using the "d2s:elements" format option.

                • Some OCR errors have been fixed in carbon ranges for homology groups, for example, "Ci_10 alkyl".

                • Generic structure names (such as "alkyl" in English) are supported in Chinese as well, for instance, N-???-4-??? and C1-C4-??.

                • Polyspiro names with a polycyclic component, such as dispiro[cyclohexane-1,2'-indene-1',2"-imidazole], are supported.

              • Document to Structure (d2s)

                • For enzymes with a substrate in their name, such as "serine protease", the substrate (serine) is not converted by default. A new format option, "d2s:substrates", enables the recognition of the substrate in such cases.

                • New format option "d2s:specific" has been added to convert only specific structures. This option excludes structures with R-groups from the conversion.

                • More OCR error correction is performed.

                • In the case of processing XML fragments not starting with "<?xml version="..."?>", it has become possible to specify that the input text is in XML format by using the "d2s:content-type=application/xml" format option.

                • Metadata is also extracted from older (since 2001) USPTO patents in XML format: the section where a name is found is recorded as metadata (title, abstract, description, or claim number). Furthermore, document metadata is extracted as well: patent title and ID, inventors, IPC categories.

                • OCR error correction has been added for Chinese names.

              • Structure to Name (s2n)

                • In fused ring systems with an atom being in a non-standard valence state, the generated name conforms to the IUPAC rules by using the lambda notation only in front of the fused names and not inside the component name.
                  See for instance: 1H,3H-2λ4-naphtho[2,3-c]thiophen-2-one.

                • Name generation has become faster by about 10%.

            • Molecule Representation

              • R-logic

                • Default value of R-logic range has been changed: instead of ">0", now it is an empty string which means "as drawn". ">0" value is handled as non-default and is exported in file formats where ChemAxon supports R-logic information (MRV, SKC, MOL). From now on, if a file does not contain R-logic range information, then it is interpreted with the new default value: "as drawn". Documentation

                • Name and corporate ID resolution webservice now supports NTLM authentication.

                • Names with a missing dash before the suffix locants are now recognized.

                • Non-standard IUPAC specification of stereochemistry inside suffix locants is supported.

                • Names with superscript locants of a bridged ring system numbering are denoted by spaces are now supported.

                • As a result of numerous improvements to the systematic name conversion algorithm, more names are converted by n2s and detected by d2s. The accuracy of structure generation has also increased. (For instance, 5% more names were detected and converted in a large, diverse set of patents.)

                • An example custom dictionary has been added to the documentation. Documentation

              • Document to Structure (d2s)

                • Chinese names are now detected in text documents using an approach which recognizes names in Chinese sentences without the spaces that separate words in English.

                • In addition to OSRA, the CLiDE and Imago Optical Structure Recognition tools (Chemical OCR) can be used to convert images to structures. These tools need to be installed separately from Marvin. Documentation

                • When processing USPTO patents in XML format, the section in which a name is found is recorded as metadata (title, abstract, citation, description, or claim number). Additionally, document metadata is extracted (patent title and ID, inventors and assignees, IPCR categories).

                • When processing a USPTO patent XML document, referenced CDX files are imported automatically if they are in the same directory as the XML file.

                • Processing of USPTO XML patents has become faster: an average 20% speed-up, more than ten times faster process for some patents.

                • PDF document pages with images in the JBIG2 format are now supported.

                • PDF documents generated by Adobe Acrobat Paper Capture Plug-In and ExperVision are now handled specially, since they contain both an original scanned image of text and the text resulting from OCR of the image. This allows much faster processing of such documents, and avoids double hits for the same text.

                • PDF documents with many small high-resolution images are now processed much faster, even when Optical Structure Recognition is used.

                • The document creation date property is stored as a java.util.Date object instead of string.

                • Structures returned by image recognition tools (OSRA, CLiDE, Imago) are better filtered to avoid false positives.

                • OCR processing for scanned texts can be disabled using the -ocr format option. Documentation

                • Processing of PDF documents with scanned black and white images (e.g., most non-searchable patent documents) has become approximately two times faster.

              • Structure to Name (s2n)

                • When converting a structure to CAS registry number, the InChiKey of the structure is used to search for the structure. This allows more structures to get a CAS registry number in such cases where several different SMILES with chemically irrelevant differences are associated with the structure.

            • Molecule Representation

              • New method, SelectionMolecule.addAtom(MolAtom, boolean), is introduced. Forum

            • Chemical Terms

              • Chemical Terms's (CT) Structure Checker functions accept XML configuration as string parameter, thus Structure Checker XML configurations can be used in JChem Cartridge via CT.

              • New checkErrorCount Chemical Terms function returns the number of errors/issues found by the checker(s) in the configuration. Documentation

            • Structure Checker

              • Text elements (atom labels, atom indices, text box contents, IUPAC name) were not resized in MarvinView while zooming the structure using the "View > Transform > Zoom" function. Forum

            • Printing in MarvinView

              • When choosing "Print > All Visible", the structures overlapped in the preview, and "Print > All Visible > Print to PDF" resulted in an empty file.

                • Names with a cis- or trans-imine bond were failing to be converted to structures

                • Ions, such as "bismuth(3+)", were imported with valence property set to 0.

                • Ortho substitution on acetophenone generated wrong structures.

                • Some E/Z and R/S stereochemistry was missing in structures imported from names when the locant of the atom or bond with stereochemistry was not specified explicitly.

                • The "H-" ion was missing from names containing "hydride", e.g., sodium hydride, they only had e.g., "Na+ instead of the correct NaH.

                • The "Name" format was not automatically recognized for names with XML/HTML character references, such as "&#946;" or "&alpha;".

                • In some cases, amino acids with α, β, and γ prefixes were not converted.

                • Using n2s in the applet required the downloading of an unnecessary component. This, in turn, made the first applet usage much slower.

              • Document to structure (d2s)

                • Some common words such as "DUST" or "crank", were recognized as names because, e.g., DUST is a rare acronym for a chemical structure. These words are now ignored.

                • The insideTag format option was not working for XML and XHTML documents.

                • When d2s was interrupted (for instance, by a timeout), an OCR or OSR process could be left running in the background until it was completed. In similar cases such processes are now stopped immediately.

                • Extracted names sometimes contained some irrelevant characters at the end, such as "4-(trifluoromethyl)-2-((1H-1,2,4-triazol-1-yl)phenyl)-methanamine 2e" instead of "4-(trifluoromethyl)-2-((1H-1,2,4-triazol-1-yl)phenyl)-methanamine".

                • In some cases, single names separated by space were imported as if they were one compound, for instance, "2-hexanoyloxyethyl 1-formyloxypropyl".

                • Embedded structures in Office documents were always imported with the absolute chiral flag set.

              • Structure to name (s2n)

                • When generating names in parallel in multiple threads, some E/Z stereo bond modifiers were missing from the output.

                • Wrong names were generated for structures with multiple attachment points. These cases are now detected and no name is generated for them. Generating a name in this case will be implemented in the future.

                • Stereoinformation was lost during explicit Hydrogen removal from stereocenter when all ligands of the stereocenter were also stereogenic.

                • Conversion of explicit Hydrogen to implicit one thrown exception when there is only a Hydrogen atom in an R-group definition or in a definition member.

            • Image I/O

              • Text box contents, atom labels and atom attributes (e.g., atom indices, stereo labels), and IUPAC names were not exported to PDF as text. When the "Save/Load GUI settings" checkbox was checked in the Preferences dialog, text attributes (e.g., font type, size) were not exported either.

            • Clean 2D

              • Clean removed stereo centers around the contracted superatom S-groups.

                • In some cases, such as "4-methylthiophenylmethyl", there is an ambiguity whether "thiophenyl" refers to a compound derived from thiophene or thiophenol. Name to Structure now gives priority to the thiophenol related compound interpretation; though, "thiophenyl" by itself will still be supported as thiophene derivatives.

            Bugfixes

            • Painting

              • If R-group visibility was turned off and any of the bonds had label(s) to paint, an ArrayIndexOutOfBounds exception was thrown.

            • Image I/O

              • Document to Structure (d2s)

                • Startup time of document to structure has been significantly reduced. This is especially important when processing very short text documents, such as a single sentence or paragraph. The speedup in such cases can be up to 10 times faster.

            Bugfixes

            • Calculations

              • NMR (HNMR, CNMR Prediction, ...)

            September 20th 2012: Marvin 5.11.0

            New features and improvements

            • MarvinSketch GUI

              • Molecule properties like SDF fields can be added/edited/deleted in MarvinSketch GUI.

              • Bond properties can be added/edited/deleted in MarvinSketch GUI.

              • Lone pair can be displayed as a line. The option can be set from the "Preferences" panel.

              • Charge can be displayed in a circle. The option can be set from the "Preferences" panel.

              • An aromatic benzene template has been added to the Generic templates.

            • Data transfer

              • Clipboard handling

                • Java wrapper for CXNSharedAddin library has been introduced to handle tabular data transfer from/to Microsoft Office applications.

            • Import/Export

              • CDX/CDXML

                • Graphical arrows "retrosynthetic" and "equilibrium" are imported from CDX and CDXML files.

              • Name to Structure (n2s)

                • Names, such as "methyl ether", are used either to denote a group (CH3-O-*) or the dimethyl ether compound (CH3-O-CH3), as well. The default behavior still is to generate the complete compound, but a new name option "expectGroup" has been added to get the group instead.

                • A name converter can now prevent a name from being converted (even by other lower-priority converters). See the API of the chemaxon.naming.NameConverter class.

              • Document to Structure (d2s)

                • Peptide 3 letter abbreviations are now recognized in documents, for instance ValGlySerAla or Val-Gly-Ser-Ala.

                • A new option has been added to control the maximum time allowed for processing a document: format option "d2s:timeout=60" to allow a maximum of 60 seconds. Default is 0 meaning infinite timeout.

                • A new option has been added to disable the extraction of OLE embedded structures from Office documents (option name: "d2s:-ole").

                • Structures imported from the custom name dictionary now have the "Type" property set to "custom" instead of "common".

                • Memory usage has been significantly reduced when processing large PDF documents (for instance hundreds of scanned pages).

                • Structure image conversion by OSRA has become faster, resulting in more structures converted when previously a timeout was reached.

                • CAS names (which typically include commas) are not converted by default by d2s anymore (they are still converted by n2s). The old behavior can be activated by using the "d2s:CASnames" format option.

                • The unwanted interpretation of some common words as chemical names, that are frequent especially in patents, has been avoided. For example, the 'amino' group when used in the phrase 'amino acid', or 'Ser' when it is not the abbreviation of Serine but 'Ser. No.' for 'serial number'.

              • Structure to Name(s2n)

                • Multiple name generation tasks can now be run in parallel at full speed to make use of multiple CPUs and cores.

                • Multiple name import tasks now run faster, as partial locking is no longer required and has been removed.

                • Generated names now use unicode characters when needed, for instance, 6λ4-thiadispiro[5.2.59.26]hexadecane instead of 6$l^{4}-thiadispiro[5.2.5^{9}.2^{6}]hexadecane. The pure ASCII output can be generated using the "name:ascii" format option.

              • Image I/O

                • New parameter imageImportServiceURL has been added to the image importer module. The URL can be set on the "Preferences" dialog or as an import option.

              • VMN import

                • VMNs of type "display" are now read.

                • VMN abbreviated group list has been extended: carbon chains up to 50 members have been added.

                • AV (abnormal valence) property is now stored in atom property and not set as atom valence. The VMN valence representation will be revised in a later version.

                • Deuterium and tritium count property is handled properly in VMN (added as D and T ligands for non-homology atoms). D and T are transposed during the import in comparison to the VMN, as this represents the correct information in the majority of the MMS database.

                • Correcting incorrect atom types in VMNs: C0 is transformed to CHK; C1 is transformed to C; homology groups in ring are transformed to XX

                • Attachment bond type is set to parent R-atom bond type if different.

                • VMN import option is available for switching off corrections: Documentation

                Documentation

              • Structure Checker is going to be moved to the MarvinBeans package. Until it is done, the new Structure Checker GUI is available in both JChem and MarvinBeans packages as Structure Checker JChem and Structure Checker, respectively.

              • Substructure Checker feature is accessible only in Structure Checker JChem until the complete relocation of Structure Checker.

              • Improved R-group Attachment Error Checker detects R-group definitions having incorrect R-group attachment orders. Fixer is not available for this feature yet.

              • New Explicit Hydrogen Checker options are ready for use. Documentation

              • Checkers that are not recognized as internal or external checker are called: "Invalid Checkers". Invalid Checkers cannot be used in valid Structure Checker configurations; they need to be removed to perform proper working behavior.

            • Build/Installation

              • Marvin Beans and JChem installers - for Linux - bundled with Java 1.6.0_33 have been introduced.

                • Valence Check

                  • Aromatic carbon cations having three ligands were handled incorrectly by the Valence check.

                  • False positive valence error was on aromatic rings which have sulfur ligand that is part of a ring.

                • S-groups

                  • Bracket positioning did not take the implicit hydrogen atoms into account.

                  • If data were added as "relative", the cleaning or arrange methods did not take them along with the fragment/component/molecule.

                  • The chirality of expanded S-group's atom changed, when there wasn't enough space in the canvas for the expanded S-group.

                  • After expanding S-groups, atoms of the molecule could overlap.

                  • Removal of explicit hydrogen being the only atom of an S-group was unsuccessful. New flag, SGROUP_H, has been introduced, for remove such hydrogens.

                  • Exception was occurred when an abbreviated group was copied then pasted.

                  • Method MulticenterTransform.transformMulticenters(Molecule mol) and MulticenterTransform.restoreMulticenters(Molecule mol) changed the number of implicit hydrogens of atoms.

                • R-groups

                • In case of selection, stereoinformation of the molecule during two dimensional cleaning was lost.

              • Aromatization/dearomatization

                • General aromatization worked incorrectly in case of molecules with a bond connecting 2 rings but not being part of any ring. Solving this problem, deprecated method int[] getSSSRBondSet(), was removed and, instead, BitSet getSSSRBondSet() was introduced.

                • SMILES, SMARTS

                  • In some rare cases, the unique SMILES of a molecule depended on the numbering of the atoms.

                • CML, MRV

                  • Parity value in CML format was stored the opposite way as the CML standard defines it. Now the correct value is stored which leads to backward inconsistency with CML files generated by ChemAxon applications in previous versions, but correct values are read from standard CML files. To avoid running into similar problems in the future, now a version information is stored both in CML and MRV formats. This information contains a version number of the file format and the application version by which the file was generated. The parity value is changed to opposite in MRV format as well to be consistent with the CML format but it does not lead to backward inconsistency in this case: parity values stored in not versioned MRV files are converted to their opposite while parity values from versioned MRV files are not.

                • PDF

                  • Some unconventional names were generated with suffixes such as amido, sulfonyl, carbonyl, ... mentioned as prefixes. For instance 2-[(2-chlorophenyl)amido]benzoate for [O-]C(=O)C1=C(NC(=O)C2=C(Cl)C=CC=C2)C=CC=C1. The generated names is now 2-(2-chlorobenzamido)benzoate.

                • Name to Structure (n2s)

                  • Stereochemistry was not indicated in the displayed structure when cis or trans is used to specify the configuration of the two substituents of a ring system.

              • Import/Export

                • Molconvert has a new option, :D, which is important if the molecule has parity information and has 0 dimension. By default during the export, a clean method is invoked on the structure and the generated coordinates and wedge information are exported into MRV format but NOT the parity information. However, using this option coordinates and wedge information are not generated but parity information is exported.

                • Mrv files can be validated by using the XSD schema containing the description of the mrv format.

                • Export options of cml and mrv formats can be used in molconverter application.

                • More verbose logging from OLE .NET panel (catching managed bridge exceptions via COM) has been introduced.

              Bugfixes

              • MarvinView

                • Sometimes molecules were lost when switching from "Spreadsheet mode" (Table>Options>Table Type) to "Molecule matrix" mode.

                • When a zero length structure file was opened, the content of the previous file remained in the viewer until the first repainting.

                • Scrolling up and down increased the number of molecules and changed their orders.

              • Painting

                • Until the first repaint, textbox was smaller than required, and the content was cropped to its size.

              • Import/Export

                • Structure to Name (s2n)

                  • Incorrect name was generated for chiral allenes, for instance: (2M)-1,3-dichloropropa-1,2-diene, the correct is 1M. (The locant was previously in the middle of the cumulated double bond system, but is now at the beginning of it, as prescribed by IUPAC.)

                  • Fixed generation of names in the case where a radical marker "yl" was missing, for instance "...(4-methylbenzene)sulfonyl..." instead of the correct form "...(4-methylphenyl)sulfonyl..."

                  • Name generation was sometimes failing on fused ring systems with a spiro connections or adjacent fusion bonds. Conversion rate of fused ring systems goes up from 99.83% to 99.95% on the NCI database set.

                  • The numbering of fused ring systems was incorrect in about 1% of the cases both in s2n and n2s.

                • Name to Structure (n2s)

                  • Automatic name format recognition failed for names containing unicode prime characters.

                  • CAS number cache could get corrupted and created failures.

                • Document to Structure (d2s)

                  • The total length (getEstimatedTotalCharacters) was not available to progress listeners during Document to Structure conversion of PDFs using the API.

                • SMILES

                  • CXSMILES IO error due to non-escaped characters appeared.

                  • The name imported from SMILES format was wrong in rare cases, when special characters (e.g., |) were in the fields part of the extended SMILES.

              • Calculator Plugins

                • logP and pKa calculations threw error at heavy atom count 300.

                • Generic tautomer generation might have threw an error if the molecule contained Hydrogen isotopes.

              • MarvinSketch GUI

                • New bond type: "Hashed bond" has been introduced.

                • "Coordinate" Bond Line Style – in the Edit>Preferences>Bonds menu – allows changing the type of coordinate bonds between the default ones (arrow for single atom and hashed for multicenter) and solid.

                • Selected structures can be aligned or distributed relative to each other horizontally or vertically. The Align&Distribute function aligns and distribute the objects at the same time.

                • New chain drawing tool: Curved chain tool. Instead of creating a straight chain it modifies the direction of the last bond of the chain based on the mouse movement. Curved chains or macrocycles can be created that way.

                • The chain drawing direction is mirrored based on the direction of the mouse movements.

                • Selection can be moved in greater units with SHIFT + arrow keys.

              • Data transfer

                • Native pasteboard for Macintosh has been implemented. It solves general copy/paste issues, e.g., copy/paste between Marvin and other chemical sketcher programs (e.g., ChemDraw).

                • Marvin supports conversion of other Vendors (currently ISIS and Symys) embedded OLE objects to Marvin OLE.

              • Structure Checker

                • New checkers are available:

                  • R-group Attachment Error Checker: detects attachment differences between R-atoms and R-group members. A new fixer corrects the attachment bond types and adds missing attachments in unambiguous cases.

                  • R-group Reference Error Checker: detects missing R-atoms, missing R-groups, self or circular references of nested R-atoms.

                • Checker and fixer classes implemented by the user are loaded from given jar file.

              • API

                • chemaxon.marvin.util.ColorGenerator class provides an easy way to generate the required number of different colors.

                • Several core functions are deprecated. See this table for details.

              August 31st, 2011: Marvin 5.6.0

              New features and improvements

              • MarvinSketch GUI

                • New mouse cursors have been introduced.

                • New structure templates have been added (Alpha D sugars, Beta D sugars, Deoxynucleosides, Flavonoids, Nucleobases, Nucleosides, Protoalkaloids, True Alkaloids, Vitamins, Functional Groups).

              • MarvinView GUI

                • Atoms can be marked in Marvin View by hovering the cursor over it. This also works even if another atom has already been selected. A property change event is sent on every atom mark (Documentation).

              • Applet

              • Import/Export

                • Str2Name

                  • New option has been added to generate all common names for a structure, e.g.: molconvert "name:common,all" -s viagra.

                  • Less brackets are generated in names in traditional mode. For instance, instead of "{1-[(tert-butoxy)carbonyl]-1H-indol-2-yl}boronic acid" the generated traditional name is now "1-(tert-butoxycarbonyl)indol-2-ylboronic acid".

                • Name2Str

                  • MolImporter can now process a PDF file as input and convert the chemical names in the text into structures. Structure images are also converted if OSRA is installed on the computer.

                  • Increased support for name to structure conversion (measured between 6% and 30% on certain datasets).

              • Calculator Plugins

                • "Marvin Services" has been introduced: Web/local services client, which provides seamless integration of third-party calculations into Marvin Sketch, cxcalc, and via Chemical Terms into Instant JChem or JChem for Excel. Industrial standard solutions like SOAP with WSDL are supported, along with the more lightweight XML-RPC or JSON-RPC protocols. Java based calculations can be called without server, directly from the jar file.

                • A new type of fragmentation has been implemented where the fragments contained in the same S-group are not separated. Fragmentation methods now have fragmentation type as parameter. The three types of fragmentation are:

                  • Basic: no S-groups are considered, fragments are separated even if they are in one S-group. Broken S-groups are not added to the fragments.

                  • Keeping multicenters: multicenter S-groups are kept in one fragment, other types of S-groups that contain more than one fragment are not added to the fragments, those fragments are separated.

                  • Keeping S-groups: all S-groups are kept, fragments in the same S-group are not separated.

                  Previous fragmenting methods which did not indicate the type of fragmentation are deprecated; they do the same as before (keep multicenters), but now – correctly – without generating inconsistent molecules with broken S-groups. These methods will be removed in later releases.

              • Markush enumeration

                • There is a significant speedup of sequential and random Markush enumerations. (Hundreds of times speedup for average patent Markush structures. Speedup depends on the complexity of Markush structures.)

              • Structure Checker

                • New checkers are available:

                  • Unbalanced Reaction Checker: reports if there is difference in the total number of atoms or atom types on the two sides of the reaction arrow.

                  • Atom Query Property Checker: detects atoms having query properties. A new fixer can remove the identified query properties.

                • New feature: "3D checker" detected issues can be fixed by "Remove Z-Coordinate Fixer". It flattens molecules by setting the z-coordinates of atoms to zero.

                • Structure Checker command line application has greatly improved. See the documentation for details.

                • Improvements in substructure checker: multifragment molecule handling, implicit hydrogen handling, improved command line access. "Transform" fixer for substructure errors: modifies substructures.

              • API

                • New function to get the enantiomer of a molecule has been implemented: chemaxon.calculations.stereo.Stereochemistry.getEnantiomer(MoleculeGraph m).

                • Molecule Painting

                  • The shadow painting of the sprout drawing feature removed the error highlight of Structure Checker.

                  • Atom label was shifted in case of terminal double/aromatic bonds at the end of chains. Double bond was not painted in the centered position when there were no substituents on either sides.

                    • MarvinSketch GUI

                      • Multiple, ordered R-group attachment points in Markush structures. It is possible to define bond types on the ligands, and change the order of the attachment points as well.

                      • PubChem substructure search from Marvin.

                      • New 3D transformation options: rotate around various axes, group rotation, horizontal/vertical/group Flip, horizontal/vertical/canvas/group Mirror, and Inversion (Documentation: Move and rotate, Flip, Mirror, Inverse).

                      • 3D Plane option: upon three selected atoms it rotates the structure to have the selected atoms in the drawing plane (Documentation).

                      • Directed Merge option: It merges a fragment (Substituent) to another (Template or Scaffold) based on atom pairs assigned by the Atom Assigner tool (Documentation).

                      • New Substituent option: Opens a separate MarvinSketch window to sketch a new fragment, and transfers it back to the main window (Documentation).

                      • Context based, configurable attached data editing (Documentation: Attached Data and Attach Data Config).

                      • Delete actions have been uniformized, and the Delete tool work differently on terminal atoms when holding the Alt key. The default behavior of delete can be configured on the Preferences dialog (forum topic).

                      • Atom editing procedures have been improved, so the "feature" that automatically deleted a bond when an atom was dragged over it has been removed.

                    • Applet

                    • Molecule Painting

                      • Aromatic and double bond display improvements: now it follows the IUPAC recommendation in each case (forum topic).
