• Simulation of resonance Raman spectra (contributed by Saswata Dasgupta, Bhaskar Rana, John Herbert)
• Suite of nuclear-electronic orbital methods (contributed by Fabijan Pavosevic, Coraline Tao, Sharon Hammes-Schiffer)
• Extended symmetry-adapted perturbation theory with many-body dispersion (contributed by Kevin Carter-Fenk, John Herbert)
• Orbital-optimized MP2 methods with regularization (contributed by Joonho Lee, Martin Head-Gordon)
• Square gradient minimization method for excited-state orbital optimization (contributed by Diptarka Hait, Martin Head-Gordon)
• Extensions of the EOM-CC suite: open-shell FNO, EOM-DEA, more properties (contributed by Pavel Pokhilko, Maxim Ivanov, Sahil Gulania, Anna Krylov)
• Suite of methods for modeling resonances (contributed by Zsuzsanna Benda, Mario Hernandez Vera, Thomas Jagau, James Gayvert, Ksenia Bravaya, Alec White, Martin Head-Gordon, Wojtek Skomorowski, Anna Krylov)
