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/ .

Source code adapted to Qt5 is available as [1] (Thomas Hauß, HZB).

To compile the program, use 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"
# on CentOS6 I had to install and use cmake3 instead of cmake 
# installation of the 0.7 version works in the same way

Linux binaries are available at https://strucbio.biologie.uni-konstanz.de/pub/linux_bin . The default one is a Qt5 binary (a Qt4 binary is available as XDS-viewer.qt4).

A Qt5 binary for MacOS 10.13, and one for 10.15 and newer was made available by Thomas Hauß (HZB). The old Qt4 XDS-Viewer-0.6.dmg is still the default; so Mac users must decide which one is appropriate.

Binaries at the sourceforge site

These binaries are really old.
