Welcome to the EMBOSS mailing list.

I have put the first public release of EMBOSS on our FTP server:


This version includes the core sequence reading and has many
internal changes to the libraries. Databases can now be defined
and used. Many other features are nearly complete.

I will add installation and developers guides to the Web pages
tomorrow (Thursday).

I will be on vacation next week, and will then get on with
documentation for the libraries and developers guides, plus more
of the workshop-related tasks.

There are still gaps in the command definition file syntax, but if you
send me suggested additions for any applications you need to develop I
promise to make them top priority (which means ready within 2 days).
