300,000 Downloads

I was pulling up statistics on Avogadro for an NSF proposal, and saw that we finally broke the 300,000 download mark! In 2012, there were ~100,000 downloads alone.

Incidentally, the usage is profoundly international. There are now 26 localizations with >50% coverage, including Vietnamese, Malay, and Indonesian.

That is awesome news, I saw we were getting close when I looked around
the new year. I just made a blog post and the Avogadro paper is also
the most viewed paper in the Journal of Cheminformatics over the last
year, and it is at number 10 all time I think.
