Hi everybody,

The Biopython release (1.43, code-named "Bronx") is coming up. This 
release will include the new Bio.SeqIO code as well as the new Blast 
parser. I'm planning to finish the release during the weekend of March 
17/18, so about ten days from now.

Some files have been added or removed from Biopython recently, so it may 
be useful to checkout a fresh copy of Biopython from CVS. The Biopython 
tests in CVS all pass, so things are looking good. However, Bugzilla 
currently lists 17 bugs, so please have a look to see if there's
something we can do about them.

If you have some code sitting around, now would be a good time to commit 
it to CVS. However, if you are not sure if your code is ready for prime 
time, please hold off until after this release.

Thanks everybody for your contributions to Biopython.
