I must say that, in my opinion, this release is premature. I appreciate the
comment ' lacks features present in Avogadro 1', but the new version appears
to be incapable of rendering benzene as a planar molecule at this point.
Although the optimized geometry of cyclohexane approximates the less stable
boat conformer, the 1.0 version will generate the more stable chair
conformer on optimization.
Is it possible that I am missing something in the new, more convoluted
directory and subdirectory structure of the gui?

Subject: [Avogadro-Discuss] Avogadro 2 0.7.0 Released
We are very proud to announce the availability of Avogadro 2 0.7.0.
Avogadro 2 is a free, open source, cross-platform molecular editor designed
for flexible use in computational chemistry, molecular modeling,
bioinformatics, materials science, and related areas.
Packages are available for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X. The source code
source is available under the 3-clause BSD license.
Avogadro 2 is a rewrite of Avogadro, and still lacks features present in
Avogadro 1. Both packages can be installed on the same system, and so it is
possible to try the latest without losing access to the previous version. We
will be making occasional releases of Avogadro 1.x too, along with migrating
functionality to Avogadro 2. We value your feedback, and hope that you will
find the improvements made in version 2 useful.
What does Avogadro 2 do?
* We've tried to make the best, most intuitive "builder"
* Interfaces to many common computational packages
* Designed to help both educational users and advanced research
* Plugins that allow it to be extended and customized
* Can be extended with simple Python scripts for file IO and input
* Well defined public API, libraries and modular design
