If biojava-legacy works fine for you, feel confident using it.  It is
actively maintained; there just won't be any new features.

> I find the home page Biojava.org a little confusing... The tutorial page

The biojava.org website didn't survive a wiki migration to github without
running into some problems.  If you find any, please file them as issues at
