XDS-viewer is a open source program that was written by Michael Hoffer (Kabsch lab). It replaces the now obsolete VIEW program, and is available from http://xds-viewer.sourceforge.net/ .

I was able to compile the program (version 0.6) for RedHat Enterprise Linux version 6 (or rather, for its CentOS equivalents) by the following recipe:

wget http://downloads.sourceforge.net/xds-viewer/xds-viewer-0.6.tar.gz
tar xf  xds-viewer-0.6.tar.gz
cd xds-viewer-0.6
sh compile.sh 
# If this complains about missing tools or libraries, use e.g. "yum search cmake" 
# I had to "yum install cmake qt-devel"

I worked out the following patch to make the x and y values fit into the upper right window:
