I've just finished uploading the usual source, binary,
and javadoc releases of BioJava 1.20, the first full release
from the 1.2 branch.  Get yours now from:


I'm planning to announce this on the website, and on freshmeat.net,

Although the core interfaces have changed very little since
the 1.1 branch, the codebase has in fact virtually doubled in
size, and there's a huge amount of new and improved
functionality.  I'd urge anyone who hasn't been tracking
development closely to take a look at the API documentation:

I'd especially like to thank Keith James, who was responsible
for setting up the automated junit test suite, and writing
many of the tests.  This has definitely helped reliability,
and I hope we can further improve test coverage during the
next development cycle.

Anyway, enjoy this release!
