[Biopython-announce] Biopython 1.10 Available
Tue, 17 Dec 2002 22:43:11 -0800
I've just made Biopython 1.10 available at:
This is a major release with lots of bug fixes and new features.
Everyone using Biopython is strongly recommended to upgrade. Note
that the Python version requirement has been bumped to 2.2.
This is the first(-ish) stable release of Biopython. This means that
the major core functionality and internals are in place. People have
been using Biopython to do real work for a while now, so most of the
major issues have been worked out.
Please send mail to firstname.lastname@example.org if there are any problems
with this release.
Many thanks to everyone who has contributed with bug reports, patches,
documentation, and any other types of support!
