        Dear colleagues,

As you all know, with EMBOSS 2.8.O the syntax of the ACD files has
changed. An unfortunate consequence is that EMBOSS programs do not work
well or not at all anymore under Staden spin or spin2. The script
acd2tcl.tcl should be updated as to handle new things like the rename
required -> standard and the use of $acdprotein. Unfortunately there is no
support for Staden anymore (well, it was recently announced that James
Bonfield is working at Sanger Centre, but according to the Web page he is
only developing gap4, not spin). Does someone know more about it ?

        Guy Bottu,
