We are focusing on an eventual v1.7 release, where we will be splitting out code from core over point releases and packaging them together as Bundles/Tasks.

Essentially, though we do not have a v2 branch.  v1.7 will focus on splitting code out, v2 would focus on improving speed and simplifying code w/o API worries.

You are welcome to test it out, as long as you understand the caveat to not expect that code on that branch to always pass tests (and that it relies on having Bio-Root module installed separately, which BTW are not on CPAN yet).  If you need to work on a branch that is expected to pass, I would use ‘v1.6’.

No problem.  Let us know how it goes!
