I'm pleased to announce that Open Babel 2.4.0 has finally been released.

This release represents a major update and should be a stable upgrade, strongly 
recommended for all users.

We intend to move to an annual major release every September, with bug fix 
releases as needed.

A sample of major new features:
* Integration of the confab conformer generator
* Improved partial charge models, including EEM methods, EQeq
* ECFP radial fingerprints
* Initial support for ring rotamer / conformer sampling
* Improved GAFF atom typing and parameterization
* New PHP scripting bindings
* Many new file formats, features and bug fixes
