I am pleased to announce the release of a new website for BioPerl.   
The site is based on the mediawiki software that was developed for  
the wikipedia project.  We intend the site to be a place for  
community input on documentation and design for the BioPerl project.   
There is also a fair amount of documentation started surrounding  
bioinformatics tools and techniques applicable to using BioPerl and  
some of the authors who created these resources.

The website continues to be at the URL http://www.bioperl.org.  The  
DNS updates may take up to 24 hours to reach everyone.

The initial content of the site is result of the work of myself,  
Mauricio Herrera Cuadra, Brian Osborne, and Torsten Seemann.  We  
encourage you to contribute to the site's content by signing up for  
an account.

There are several guides for style of the site and how to link to  
Modules for example which can contain additional information from the  

You'll notice that many of the paths have changed but the DIST and  
SRC continues to be available at http://bioperl.org/DIST and http:// 
bioperl.org/SRC.  The HOWTOs are now available from http:// 

The FAQ is available at http://bioperl.org/wiki/FAQ and I encourage  
you to add your questions to it so they can be properly archived and  

We also have initiated a News site for Bioperl for posting  
announcements regarding development and software.  I would like to  
see if there are volunteers to post weekly or monthly summaries of  
mailing list traffic and development.
