I remember it well.

EMBOSS 1.0.0 was July 15th 2000.

Saint Swithin's Day ... and the day I handed over the project to Alan 
when I left the Sanger Centre.

Of course, the beta versions were around for a couple of years before 
that. I demonstrated 0.0.c (if memory serves) in August 1998.

Alan ... do you have a copy of the announcement? Maybe it could go on 
the website :-)
