If you use Homebrew to install rdkit, the formula has been updated to use the
new release. To update, run these two commands
brew update edc/homebrew-rdkit
brew upgrade rdkit
You should see something like this:
==> Upgrading 6 outdated packages, with result:
cmake 126.96.36.199, wget 1.14, pcre 8.32, swig 2.0.9, boost 1.52.0, rdkit 2012.12.1
If it does not work, try untap and retap:
brew untap edc/homebrew-rdkit
brew tap edc/homebrew-rdkit
brew uninstall rdkit
brew install rdkit
