RE: {Talisma#034-262} Chem 3D Ultra 7.0 as a Gaussian interface.



That's an understandable expectation, but management had a different
 opinion on how to proceed with the development resources we had available at the
 time.  It was decided to put the resources available on implementing GAMESS and
 Tinker interfaces.  New development resources have become available, but it is
 still unclear as to when the issues you have reported will be addressed.  We do
 hope to address them in a future release.
