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://wiki.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). Mac users must decide which one is appropriate.

Binaries at the sourceforge site

These binaries are really old.
